This invention relates to a pump jack which
may be fitted to a farm pump of conventional -
type for the purpose of operating the pump either
by power derived from a motor or from a‘wind
mill or by hand, and the inventionis directed
particularly to the means provided for compact
ly arranging the mechanical vassembly so that it
may be connected interchangeably, either to the
reciprocating shaft of a `windmillor to the‘ro
