Large Neon Sign - Florida Market Speedracer 1 hour ago
I am selling my Florida Market neon sign. This is a very cool Sign. Needs new neon.

Nice Florida Market Fruit & Vegetables Neon Sign. The sign is double sided and has the original bull nose end. Has a great Art Deco look with the arrows at the top, and the stepped-down striped bull nose end.

The sign is in great shape. The can and frame are solid. The sign is large and measures approximately 113” x 54.5” x 10.5”. The original neon on this sign was red.

$4500. Pick up in southeast Michigan. About an hour northeast of Detroit.

G&B 176-179 correct sheet metal hardware? Rustnspokes Yesterday at 05:09 PM
Does anyone know off-hand what hardware is required to attach the skins? Some of the holes around the base seem to be 5/16, but a few are larger, should they be square, hex, or slotted round head? The hardware that connects the sides of the skins together is smaller, maybe 1/4-20, I assume they should be slotted round head screws? This pump came already disassembled with no hardware so I don't have anything to go by. Thanks in advance.

Re: GB176 What are these holes for?? Steven C. Yesterday at 01:41 PM
I was going to silicone a piece of screen over them on the inside. I'm doing this at all openings in hopes of keeping the bees/hornets out.

Re: Restoring my Gilbarco 996C BrianH Yesterday at 01:31 PM
Man, I would really consider wet sanding the green off to get down to the original yellow and leave it as-is. There are so many restored pumps out there and very few originals left. Would be good to preserve all the existing pumps with good original paint and markings. It's your pump so do what you want but if it were me, that's what I'd do.

Milwaukee Gas Pump Identify Please Brassnozzle Yesterday at 03:51 AM
I can’t figure out what version this pump is.
Seams like the Sure Lock is way lower then what’s pictured in Jack’s books. I found this pump way up in Northern Canada. Is there a Canadian version of these pumps? Thanks Everyone!

Also does anyone have any parts for the Lock or anything else that’s melted off. Cheers

Re: Conoco Help keithia Yesterday at 01:22 AM
They look like pump top spinners but are missing the advertising part I am guessing. I had a Wayne 505 that looked like they had something like that attached to the top at some point.

Veeder-Root - Price Setting Problem HighOctane Mon Sep 28 2020 11:21 PM
Hi everyone. New member here with a question that I've searched on this forum with no success, so hopefully I'm not covering well-worn ground.

While I am new to this site, I am definitely not new to restorations. I've restored a '49 Ford and a '48 Indian and a vintage race car, so while not a pro, I know which end of the wrench to use. But, doing a gas pump and especially the VR mechanical computer is all new to me.

Attached photo shows my VR with the variator section removed from the counter section. The 10 cent and 1/10 cents Rack Links are removed in the photo.

My current project is a Wayne 70 gas pump that I picked up about 25-30 years ago. It has spent most of that time inside my garage, just waiting for my attention. Thus the "works" are in pretty good shape. As a matter of fact, the gears in the variator look great and most spin in what appears to be a normal way. I say "most" because the gear that drives the counter wheels is locked solid. Will not spin. I cleaned the counter gears and they are in good condition and rotating the drive on the counter moves the money wheels easily. Even befiore I cleaned and oiled everything it reset correctly every time and as I spun the variator, the counter wheels spun correctly before I tried to reset the price per gallon. After I tried the reset, the money wheels would not spin. I am installing one of Kevin Frith's motor kits so motorize the VR. I have a service manual/bulletins with information on the Veeder-Roots, so I understand the basics of how it works and how to set the price. But, it is only basic knowledge and I'm sure I'm missing something that leads me to my dilemma.

My problem is in resetting the "Price per Gallon". As I mentioned, most of the gears in the counter appear to move correctly, both in resetting to zero, and in "delivery" mode. I understand how the price per gallon is reset by inserting the pins through the range plates and into the holes in the range lever and gear. All three range lever and gear assemblies move up and down freely on their vertical shafts. And, the Range Lever and Gear rotates properly in towards the Cone Gear, so that you can insert the Range, Lever Pin, into the desired hole in the Range Plate and into the hole in the Range Lever and gear. This is true of all three price settings - 10 cents range, cents, tenths. The problem is that once the pin is set for the 10 cent price range, it jams or locks up the entire mechanism. Either the gear on the 10 cent range or the shaft that drives the money section is jammed. But, like I said, it wasn't until I tried to reset the price per gallon. I guess I inadvertently buggered something up.

Is it possible that the Rack Links that mesh with the gears on the bottom of the price wheels are keeping the gears from rotating inward? Is there something that must be released, unlocked, loosened, etc. on the Rack Links to allow the gears that drive the money section to spin free? The Range Lever and Gears will rotate in and out, but I can't get the shaft that rotates the gears that drive the money wheels to move. Nothing I've tried seems to work.

One other thing that might shed light on this . . . When the gallon counter and money counter were both spinning (before I screwed it up) as I rotated the main drive, one gallon resulted in 16 cents showing on the money wheels while the Price Per Gallon was actually set to 34.9 cents. This was before I tried to change the price per gallon setting.

Finally, one last question; my computer does not have, nor does it appear to ever have had a bell on it. I would like to have this when I motorize it, as I remember this all too well from my old high school days. Is there a way to add this feature to my computer? If so, how, and where would I get the necessary parts ?

Hopefully one of you Veeder-Root experts can clue me in to what I need to do. Thanks for taking the time. I didn't mean to be so long-winded, but I wanted to thoroughly explain my problem. Any help you guys can give me will be very much appreciated.

Patrick
