I acquired this small pump years ago from my now deceased brother that I have never used and am not familiar with.
Just looking for some info. Probably has not been run for over 15 years. Are seals available?

How old is it?
What model was it called?
What would it's dollar value be?
What was it originally designed for? High banker? Small dredge?
Any info appreciated.

The intake port is 1-1/2" and the output is 1-1/4"
Its a 2 cycle Tecumseh engine

Thanks for looking

Buddy I have that same pump with a different engine. I think Davey is correct in the P90 part and the seals are ava. at any pump repair shop or Keene might still have the replacement. Simply when the seal goes bad , remove it and bring it to a shop for comparison / measurement! My pump was for a old Keene 2 inch pump with a 2 stroke . Runs great if you can put up with the noise! My pump is painted yellow and is alum.

Looks like a p90 possibly.

Thank you,

I had thought the p-90 was larger but after doing some googling for specs I believe you are right!
I also found a seal kit for sale in case I want to put it to use, just not sure yet what I want to use it for. :icon_scratch:

Specs say output is up to 100 gpm. Not bad for such a small unit.

I did find a yellow p-201 that is larger

The 201 is quite a bit larger, my 4" came with one on an 8hp B&S, I am not a fan.

It was used on the small 2" backpack dredge and also their small high banker. It's a good pump, I've had many of them over the years.
