Does anyone know the inner dimensions of a model A crank handle? I got a great old crank easel that is missing it's crank arm and thought to look at automotive crank arms as a possible replacement (could not find listings under crank easels for just the crank arm). The easel has a 1.25 inch long square that's about 3/8" to a side. I'm using a 7/8 star socket wrench (only one of the two 7/8 that I have fits it--so it's a little bit of an odd size) which is not ideal because it's not deep enough. And yeah I know 3/8 is less than 7/8 but it's a square and the socket is a star if that explains anything. I tried to go to mm that was between 7/8 and 1/2 but that didn't work. I thought if the crank hole was close to 3/8 I could file it to fit...probably wishful thinking! lol

Thanks for any info...

Looking back, the stuff seemed exceeding high for some and average for others. Does it make everyones stuff worth more ? Maybe or Maybe not, hard to gauge if someone uses that as a scale to draw from. As Ron Henderson always told me, Willing buyer and willing seller, and each time he goes it seems different.

Hi I'm new to the site. I have had this Quaker state sign since 1986. I knew the old guy who had the sign before me and it was in his barn for years. Can someone identify what the G-97 code is. I have seen plenty of these signs over the years and I am confident it is a 50's sign. Any help is appreciated.

The image of the knob shown in the Repair Parts Manual may be all we get. I drilled out the broken off brass shaft and tapped it. I threaded a machine screw into the shaft and now ready to find a knob and attach it. I will let you know what I come up with. My switch mounts to the switch cover plate with two small slot drive machine screws; not like the image depicts. The switch appears to mount to the sides of the switch box in the parts manual diagram.

I'd say the neon is a fraction of the value on that sign. you already have the can.
Pretty sure the bottom link from above would be closer. maybe a little low? The one at 21.5K was part of the V8 sign which is smaller and more desirable. Plus i thought lots of that stuff sold at top end. JMO.

It's actually a Themis 1932 French Pump.

If you’re going to leave the guts in, take those components apart and clean the insides and/or soak the insides. I use simple green. It’s not too hard to get most pump parts apart to clean the inside. After all they had to go together at one point. You’ll be surprised how much gas can still be in some of the parts.

Jim it looks like yours were printed on the metal. Mine were a heavy paper insert and pretty well destroyed. If you decide to have some printed let me know. Richard

Repop plates are available. Waynes clocks may have them and possibly Petrorelics. Id try petro relics first. The edges are turned down on the plates. Ive seen lots of different layouts and font sizes and even some slogans on the plates. i have a repop plate somewhere . if it turns up, Ill get a picture and exact size for you. I wonder if the blue flaked off? It wasnt painted over? Id get that restored
PS -yes -thats the date your clock was made .
PSS. Heres another I have to show you how faded it is and how the painting on the numbers seemed to hang in there.
