    Thought I'd share pics of this as I've never seen one before.

    3 of my pumps ready for tanks, cylinders, motors, coils, rams, caps, testing.

    3 more pumps painted, dry, ready for shipping. This week I am setting up the paint/bake booth. Unfortunately I ran out of Meyer paint on Tuesday and it's on backorder in bulk through my local dealer.

    You can also see the old test stand I built. Redesigned one is in powder coat right now, with counteracting rams for more accurate crossover relief adjustment.

    Hmmm,Iv'e been in the buisiness for 11 years and have never seen one like that.
    Any idea on the age or if it might have been an aftermarket block?

    It looks to be aftermarket.

    Age...can't tell. no year castings on it.

    My thoughts;
    aftermarket limited production or prototype that never took off.


    Certainly not a Meyer part.

    Hint to age may be that it still has a pipe thread plug (without o-ring) on the bottom of the piston check. But then again, it has the modern piston check in it with the modern spring and ball.

    Very early Meyer E-47 PA Block.

    no way.


    Single crossover relief. Early had 2.

    Base had a drain plug, so 3 plugs on front, rounded bottom lug, not square, with A valve pocket having a full C around it rather than no bottom.

    This is post-single crossover change, or prototype.

    Nice.

    That's post dual crossover relief, but previous to the single crossover valve block then.
