My fun project this summer is to build a windmill to run a filtration system
for the pond on my farm. I need a pump which runs off a pulley but all I can
find on the Web are pumps with electric motors built in. Does anyone know a
place to get just a pump, no motor?
Water pump from a car, there are many other pumps you can buy here
this one is all brass!
Make sure you copy paste the = not sure if clicking the link will work!
Just do a search on pulley pumps!

Why waste any more time on the web? Go to any farm supply store and you will
probably find something that will work. Next check your yellow pages for
companies that sell things that well drillers use. Contractor supply outfits
also sell a variety of pumps, as do places like Norhern Tools. Good luck.

Would it be practical to have the windmill raise the water to some sort
of tank and then let the water run through the filter by gravity feed?
You might have trouble keeping the pump primed unless it is mounted

I don't know if this would help. There are windmill style aerators for
sewage ponds. A couple of the small towns around here have them on their
sewage lagoons. The windmills sit on some sort of float. They're anchored
to shore to keep them centered in the lagoon.
