Was cleaning up around a old farm place. Found a Sears Self Priming Water Pump model no. 149.2606 has anyone ever seen these????? And it turns (little rough). Hope someone can help with its age. Was thinking it might be Neat to put on the front of 1 of the GTs to pump water from Creek or Pond.

Looks like the price of parts could be the reason it was in JUNK yard. May have to take it apart to just see how the inside looks. Thanks Daniel for some reason it wouldn't open for me.

That sounds like a good project! We'd like to see some pictures and hear some more about the idea! I love digging through old barns!

Sounds like a really great find Dale. Would love to see some pics. All of the skeptics are saying that Sears is on the ropes.I can only hope that they are wrong. I remember as a kid, getting their big catalog and seeing what you could buy. Sears had anything that you could possibly need. They offered all kinds of farm needs. I remember seeing cream separators,egg incubators,and whatever you would need to make your life easier on the farm. Sorry that I rambled off course on my trip down memory lane,but it did bring back some wonderful memories.

most of those parts can be sourced much cheaper, bearings should be 15-20 dollars and once you disassemble it you can measure you shaft and seal seat dia.(it should be a nominal size) then go online and order a seal cheap Water Pump Shaft Helical Spring 45/64" Mechanical Seal | eBay just an example. The only thing you might have a hard time with is an impellor its most likely been discontinued; ive rebuilt them before pretty successfully but hopefully yours is in good shape.
