If you had a copy of my Gas Pump Identification book you would be able to determine that the Bennett Model 766 were made between 1948 and 1059. If you will supply me with the complete information that is on the ID tag, I might be able to tell you the month it was born., If you like to look at some good pictures of the 766 Model Bennett pumps, go to this page of my website and just click on Bennett: http://petrolianacollectibles.com/gas%20pump%20literature.htm
Welcome to the hobby, I have the largest website devoted to this hobby. it has over 12,000 images to help you finds things.
I spent today at the shop and made some good progress on the pumps. I finished powder coating the panels on both pumps and had a friend in to help with re wiring the electrical. One of the original pull switches was rusted solid so a simple toggle switch was spliced in. I’m waiting on one more shipment for the chrome door trim and then I should have these pumps buttoned up.
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?
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.
