Old Bell Gossett Pump

I have 2 old B&G pumps that are Factory GREEN - not red.  They are model PV-5.  Vertical marathon motors supported on on springs. 
Can anybody tell me approx year and supply a link to original catalog and pump curves? 

I also have an old B&G pump with a horizontal 1/6 hp motor.   It has a 189103 bearing assembly.  How do I determine the actual pump model?

    The horizontal motor pump looks like it has some #s on it. @DanHolohan is the expert on those pumps maybe he will respond

    Horizontal kinda looks like an LD 2-1/2 or 3 but as Dan says maybe a Pd. Never seen the B&G old vertical, worked on many old Thrush and Edward's verticals. Pretty cool.

    It should have LD Or PD cast into veloute. Or just 2 1/2. We still stock 100s of parts for b&g parts and fix them weekly. They really were good pumps. Maybe not the.most efficient but long lived. All parts for red pump still available. Pump motors although are $$$ for a 1/6 hp motor comparatively to cartridge circs.

    I'm going by the bearing assembly. I recall the PD used that one. Gotta stretch my memory pretty far to pull that one out.
