I would have expected a central circular hole at the minimum for the pump ram to pass through as there is a boss for the ram on the underside of the scotch yoke. More likely some form of stuffing gland and some holes for studs to mount the pump body to the bracket.

yes there are things that dont add up. thats one of them. also the crank is much longer. ive no idea if it ever was a pump, but cant see what else it might have been. the washers that held the columns on the support frame look like they were cut out by a drunk blacksmith with a cold chisel. some bits arent factory, i believe the castings mostly are.
