"Dead Easy" Tyre Pump

Gidday,

My cousin called in yesterday, he was going through his shed at home, you know having a clean out and came across this old thing... a "Dead Easy" tyre pump - patent 1917 from Battle Creek Mich. USA which he said I could have for the Chevy, Love It and THANKS!!



He remembers an elderly gentleman gave it to him many years ago when doing the same thing of sorting out junk so he brought it home, sat it on a shelf in the corner and forgot about it, as we all do from time to time.

I know these are very rare, this one works, pumps air well and is complete with hose and fittings, I have heard about them but never seen one before or for that matter seen I mounted onto the side running boards of a vehicle as they were designed to do, so I have now soaked it in WD40, gave it a light brushing and it has come up looking great and over the next weekend I will install it onto Monty which will be a straight forward job..

  1. grant,
    that's a great find, but where will you "install it" ? on the running board or in that new / old trailer that was saved from oblivion?
