54 minutes 30 seconds ago Falcon oil can top lid markings by buzzy56

Need a oil can expert on Falcon quart oil cans. I purchased a Falcon quart oil can on ebay. The top lid on the can in the listing was stamped SAE 20. The bottom lid was stamped with a large letter "C" .
The can I recieved was plain on the top lid and had the "C " on the bottom lid.The can looks real to the best of my knowledge.
Were these cans re-popped ? Or is this just a re-lid that I have ? I will take a pic and post it .
Thanks Bob first time I have run into this.

Today at 06:01 PM Research help by Tenalquot


I'm a historical researcher looking for some info/advice. I'm researching a former Richfield service station site in Renton, WA. I've been through all the public records I can think of (tax records, assessor's photos, recorded agreements, etc) but I'm wondering if anyone here knows about other sources of information.

Specifically, I'm curious about the nature of the relationship between the people who operated the station and Richfield Oil. Did Richfield just own the station itself? Or was the agreement between the manager and Richfield as an exclusive supplier?

The property records say the land was never owned by Richfield nor are there any recorded agreements between Richfield and the property owners or the managers.

I'm stumped! Thanks in advance for any help/ideas.

Also- enjoying looking around here! Great forum!

Today at 04:27 PM Veeder Root Computer question by Vintage Hunter

Hello everyone!
I collect a variety of vintage items and do collect various gas memorabilia.
I do have a few questions but will tackle them one at a time right now.
First,I have acquired several Veeder Root mechanical computers. I am not all that familiar with them.
The one set I have I would appreciate any help on this.
Thhis particular computer is marked "The Head For Figures" with the last patent date of 1962. It seems to say it is a model number of 575,517.
What gas pumps were these originally used in? How long were these computers used,till about what year?
I would appreciate any info on this.Thanks,Ray

Today at 12:05 PM Goodyear Sign Rescued Today by jbrooks

So yesterday me and my buddy were out cruising around when he spotted this on the side of an old tire shop. I went in and spoke to the owner who told me if I can get it down he would sell it to me. Went back today with a few ladders and some wrenches and took it down. It was pretty scary to be up about 16 feet on a wobbly ladder in a chilly and windy day not knowing what would happen as I freed the bolts. Turns out it came down pretty easily.

Once down I was a bit disappointed to see that it was a single sided painted sign. I'm hoping after I attempt to strip the paint that I am not left with a piece of scrap metal.

No matter the outcome it was a fun adventure, thanks Terry for the help today.

Today at 10:34 AM rubber seal for around doors by iowaSSfan

So I'm getting my gilbarco pump ready to sit outside and bare the elements. The factory rubber seals around my doors have rotted off long ago. Wondering if anyone has found a peel and stick seal that would work for keeping the pests out? Maybe like the stuff they use for automotive that comes in a roll? Thanks for any advice. - Brian
