Floating slab for interior floor. If you place the weight of the walls and roof on it by extending it out, the settlement will happen at the edges causing the slab to bust up in the middle of the floor due to the edges settling and the center not. I purchased a building built that way and it stinks having cracks through center of my building slab from edge to edge in multiple directions. Probably three inches higher in the center of my building than the edges now after 20 years of settlement.
depends how you do this: - minimum of 4" quality concrete with rebar thruout - sawcut it too prevent cracks. plan this out no matter what the extra cost is too do it right - put a sub panel inside the building for power & for possible lighting on the outside .. ...
I've had this 36 for over a decade and it's been sitting in a corner. I've never really studied it until recently. A good friend and fellow oldgas member verified for me today that it's got the wrong computer.
As you can see in the picture, it has a later front Totalizer, embossed black wheels, and a hacked out face. The pump is crusty and original. This appears to have been done a long time ago.
I really want to make it right. I am looking for one decent face and the correct computer. I've included a pic. of the correct computer that was posted by a fellow member earlier. I think it's a 10-3/4" VR but correct me if I'm wrong on that.
Can pick up at CTO if anyone has one they can bring or send?
Thanks in advance! Call, Text, or PM 7zero4-two45-5one70
Jeff, after another look at the pic they seem complete and if the nozzles are correct that is a bonus. And if the hoses are old and in good condition another plus. With that said it might sway me on my buying decision.
Chris, I checked out my Dads short 39 and they have something similar to a U retention strip. Maybe unique to a tall? Making one is my last option... I know it would be easy but I’m a purest. I’d prefer to have the real deal.🤪
Hoping someone out there has the corner stainless pieces for a Tokheim 876 Gulf pump. I could also use one cast face bezel . These corner pieces are about 57 1/2 " long. Thanks old gas for this service.
Erie 753 clock face. Needs a base... I need to figure out a price on this one. I know all items in this thread need a price, so let’s start with $2800, because I don’t know where I should be at. These don’t come up for sale very often. Offers??
Have a friend who is wanting to sell a large Philips 66 sign in the frame, 6ft and the pole. The pole is cut nicely in the center for ease of shipping. I told him I could help him crate and prepare for shipping, but was wondering if the size was going to be a big problem. Sign easily weighs 300lbs with the frame and the two pole pieces another couple hundred pounds. Anybody have thoughts if Ebay with their new method of auctions or lack of info on them would be best or another venue. Picture means everything and this is a 8 out of 10 possibly sign. Thoughts??
We received some great history and information from Emco Wheaton on the tank truck equipment in the '38 Texaco tanker that we are restoring. There are detailed photos and descriptions in our latest post at A.W. Wheaton Brass Works Petroleum Equipment
I have decided to use a stencil to outline the RED SENTRY and FILTERED GASOLINE and then use gold paint. I don't think Bowser would have lettered the sides of 1,000s of pumps with gold leaf. Could have been water transfer decal or painted.
I need to know the width of the letters and the heighth of each line of text. Can someone provide? Joe
