Hello all. I have two upright ampicos. Rogers and Marshall & Rose. And although both working, they both have noisy box pumps. Would the problem be? Bushes or what? Are they easy to service? Brian

Ampico pumps are famous for the knocks they make! The connecting rods are the problem, particularly the ones with self-adjusting wooden wedges in them. It's a specialism in itself, to judge by what you read.

John Tuttle is very helpful and on the phone, he explained why he didn't list bushing cloth. He requires a careful measurement of the thickness of the old cloth [micrometer] and will then supply the right amount. You will have to make a dummy connecting rod to make sure of alignment. Good luck. Hal
