Just got the drive system done and was testing. I made the oil pump out of plastic and I'm not happy with it, it's too hard to get the detail I want! So I'm making one out of brass and copper right now, a lot better material for me to work with.:D
Oh and this is the first video that I've ever posted!

TJ,
Yes rev. 2 will have everything! I stopped building when I didn't get the results out of the first model!
The drive is from a vcr, it's from the cassette loader.;)
I'm also making a second model that I'm going to sell that has a RC car servo for the drive.
It is also going to be all brass and copper model too.:D

About 1/2 way done with 3 new brass units! :D
I going to keep the belt driven model, the 2 others are gear driven with a remote servo motor to power them. One of those is going to a good friend and the third I will auction off here! It will be a fully functioning HO scale oil pump unit with switch and power supply! ;)
If you've never seen my brass and copper works of art, Click HERE,
So get your Checkbooks, Credit cards, or Pay Pal ready, as usual the funds go for the Pups Care! :D

Well (HEHEHE he said well) Another day in the Oil biz down.
Need to finish the counter weights but the arms are on and set up.
Oh and the O guys need to step up and give me a challenge of some thing to build, or has Lionel done it all already?:D

Got the counter weights built and installed and the tower sections started. The weights were time consuming and tricky to install, Little to much heat and it just turns into a pile of solder and brass. Got the drive shaft for the 2 shaft driven models worked out too!

I tihnk we need a sing-along. C'mon everybody .. let's all chime in ...

The Ballad Of Jed Clampett

Come and listen to a story about a man named Jed
A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed,
Then one day he was shootin' at some food,
And up through the ground came a bubblin' crude.

Oil that is
Black gold
Texas tea.

Well the first thing you know ol Jed's a millionaire,
Kinfolk said "Jed move away from there"
Said "Californy is the place you ought to be"
So they loaded up the truck and moved to Beverly.

Hills, that is.
Swimmin' pools.
Movie stars.

Well now it's time to say good by to Jed and all his kin.
And they would like to thank you folks fer kindly droppin' in.
You're all invited back a gain to this locality
To have a heapin' helpin' of their hospitality

Hillybilly that is. Set a spell, Take your shoes off

Y'all come back now, y'hear?​

You've struck some real Texas Tea there, Sean ... excellent work!

Here is the first Oil pump running, had to redo the sucker rod assembly it was binding on the first go around!:(
The other two should be even smother than this one, it's belt driven and the other two are gear driven!:cool:
