Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Those old Aero-Motors windmill driven pumps really takes me back.  That was a great design, for their time, and they worked like champs.  There are some that have been steadily pumping away for 80 years!  

A pain to repair, true, yet if you kept up the maintenance you didn't need to repair them, under usual work conditions.  

I'll bet the owner had to re-drill the well as the older ones lowered the water table and are now sucking sand.
