Does anybody have a picture of what kind of display this sign would have been in? I can find pictures of the newer style but not this one. It is double sided and has the places for poles down each side.
Hi, Just wondering how a nice sign over the years gets "chalk spots" on one side. And better yet, how to get rid of them? Sign has been in dry storage for years....Not exposed to light or moisture. Thanks?
Ok my brother inlaw got a great deal on a Gilbert & Barker pump today and while we were there i picked up this Bennett 766 serial# 6V 7890 (i believe)any help with an actual date would be greatly appreciated.
A very good friend, Don Sherwood sold me a bunch of goodies this past week. A year ago I was visiting and he asked me if there were some pumps I wanted in case he decided to start selling stuff. He had / has many I would have liked to have but money and space. I did say "I want the Wayne 730". Well a little while back he had a couple guys over that were purchasing a few pumps. He called and asked if I still wanted it because there was interest in it. In between the call and the trip to visit a friend stopped by and had a busted up 36 ADC in his truck that was found in a scrap yard. Don asked about it and they made a deal. After looking it over he got flash backs of all the work and time that went into his first ADC and thought it might be more fun to watch me build it. The deal was passed on to me and I am VERY happy to have it. He also thinned out some of his parts and some of them came home with me.
Hi Jim, all.. It was another hot one here today, so got a good amount of things done inside today. Although forecast the last 2 days, we've not had one drop of rain yet!! We sure need it, hopefully I will awake to some precipitation in the morning! Have a good evening all, Darin
These pictures are of the internal parts of a Southwest Pump model 90R. Did any other pumps use similar mechanism?. The pump feeds into the three cylinders and turns a rod that goes up to the computer.
Hello Peggy, Man I love this kind of question!! This picture is of a little book I have that was put out by the Company. According to the introduction in the book, the books were published monthly and released by Sun Oil Co to the customer base to better explain this new growing industry. The book has the same "Sun OIls" in the setting sun on the sea logo that your bottle has. This particular book is copyright 1916 and I'm sure the logo preceded that date to some degree. But I can't be more specific than that. As you stated, the red letter Sun OIls in the diamond goes back almost to the beginning in 1890. But I do not know what the setting sun was added. Or maybe it was there from the beginning. This logo is seen on Sunoco items up into the 1920's like the can in this ad from 1925. Then by around the late 1920's the logo changes into that which is shown on the bottle Randy posted. (By the way, I have incorrectly stated on this site that the logo Randy posted is 1920's. And although that may not be completely untrue, as it may first show up in the late 20's, But I think to call it a 1930's logo is more appropriate. I haven't been able to compile enough evidence to clearly identify the change over date to myself. So I apologize to the community for that.) I may actually posses the proper evidence, but I would have to dig through a bunch of stuff that is currently packed up. Anyway Peggy, that gives you a pretty good idea as to the date of your bottle. By the way, I have several of these bottle, including some with your same logo as your. I've never seen one with the pull ring. Interesting.
