A few innovations in pumping units.

The Big Wheel
   In  the early 80's gear boxes for all pumping units were difficult to get.  Lufkin, American and a just a few other companies were even capable of manufacturing the larger gear boxes.
   Below is a pumping unit that was located south of Bowie in Montague County.
   This is the only one I ever saw. I don't know to what degree it worked or if at all!
