Yes, or larger motor pulley.


My guess is the pump stroke for the G6 I'm using. Is different then the Benjamin your using. So asking you for the length of your drop arm be pointless... Or maybe it wont?

That is a Hill MK. You will have to measure the stroke of your pump, subtract a bit so you don't bottom out the pump and make the pump arm half that lenght. I used spacers under the gearbox for adjusting the height of the gearbox so I could get equal up and down motion.
The drop arm is 9", the pedastil is 33" high.
If you need a pic of something let me know.

Your Sherwood stick break yet? :lol: Few years ago I paid $120 for a Sherwood goal stick and first shot blade broke strait up the center. Sherwood would not do anything about it. Had it out with Sherwood rep and never again. :axe:

I paid 13$ for it. I pre drilled a hole but it wasn't small enough and split when I put the screw thru. Still works as a pump aid.

Filled my 48 CI from 1200 to 3K today pretty easy.

Any chance you have a parts list on the steel used to build your pump. I'm assuming the pump has to be able to swing at the base as the pump moves. Could you supply a close up pictures of what you did there. Very nice looking set up would love to build one.
Thanks in advance for any more info you can supply.

If you have a place like princess auto, you can get a 1/2" pillow bearing for under 10$. I was just planning on bolting square tubing to the top of my pump, then attaching the pillow bearing on it. And probably something similar to that for the bottom.

You could also use 2 12" pulleys if you have them, might be cheaper then the 140$ gear box.

Here are the pics.
The base is made of 1 1/2x 3" and 2 1/2x 2 1/2" square tubing. 17"x17" square.
The center post is a metal fence post, 2 3/8" diameter, 33" high.
Pump arm is from a piece of 1/4"x 2"x 11" flat steel. Shaft is from a long 1"diam. bolt I had.
Pump arm is attatched using a weld on hub from auto parts store.
The base for the Hill pump took a bit to make but pumps with the shaft hole in the base of the pump would be easier to make a mount for. If you have a Hill MK$, I can give you dimentions for the mount if you like.
Hopefully the pics explain the rest but I can try to answer any questions .
The reason the gearbox pump arm shaft is so long is for adding another pump in the future, who knows.
