Default making a transfer pump

So a guy gave me a 3/4 HP 1725 RPM motor and I got a Dayton bronze gear pump the same type as on the filter press. I dont have my press close so I need to know what the pulley sizes are on the Westfab unit. I'm going to use it to transfer finished syrup from my draw off bucket to my "reheater"

I keep getting parts and its time to start putting them together. I just finished up an 24"x24" utility rack that fits the receiver hitch on my ATV and I put a winch on the back so when I get stuck I can pull myself out not deeper in. I still have a few vacuum pumps and 4 gas engines on the shelf.
