I recently rebuilt this 1930’s 8′ “New Elgin” model R near Union, IL. The pump used was Hitzer 50ASP with 2-1/2″ cylinder. It will be used for watering cattle in the near future. Had to use my Gin pole to raise the mill due to inaccessibility of my boom truck. Note the little tower is a Baker-Monitor make. Jan 28, 2021.
