Ohlsson & Rice: Water Pump Type 217

Recommended Posts

Nice find, this is either the Ohlsson & Rice Utility Pump or Orline version, the impeller pump was used by many different manufacturers.

At least one of these made it to the UK, it was exhibited at Mill Meece Pumping Station in 2018 (I didn't see it myself, but it was pictured in the Sept 2018 edition of the Stationary engine magazine together with not a very good write-up on O&R Compact engines, including that incorrect Korean War reference again :banghead:).

Looks nice all the parts are there seems like all the ones I see are missing half the parts. You seem to find the good ones.

I need to get out more and see what i can find.   ( That will clean up nice )

Finally got around to cleaning this one up a bit.  Also got it running today, took a few more attempts than usual but once it fired it ran pretty strong.  It’s always satisfying to fire these up!

Thanks, I tried not to overdo this one. It has a good bit of character and age so I kept it as-is as much as possible but got all the important stuff good and clean. The lighting in my photos isn’t too great, might need to take it outside and get a couple better pics.

 

Anxious to see your Tiny Tiger 400 when you’re done with it.

There would be hundreds of this little things.

That would be a lot of fun. Now that I’m in AZ I’m really going to miss being able to go to local tractor and old iron shows.  Let’s keep thinking about that, there is bound to be something in between us.

Welcome to the forum Mike!  Nice looking pump! I’m missing one of the little pumps as well for a different pump I have. I haven’t been able to locate anything like it yet.  I’ve been tempted to try to find a used transfer pump kind of like this just to see if maybe it would fit.  There are several off-brands of these small pumps so I’m sure one can be found on the cheap.  https://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200352045_200352045

Direct from Northern Tool concerning the impeller for the pump in that link. Try giving them a call and I doubt that part can be very expensive. I do NOT know if it's a direct fit or not but certainly appears it can work

Welcome Mike, there are several different O&R pumps that all seem to use the pump & impeller, I have three different ones here & only one where the impeller is intact, I should really get some measurements from it.

 

This is the impeller remains from my Petro Chug-A-Pump with some measurements (pictures taken years ago).
