Hello ,

I am new to the site and enjoy reading comments. I bought a Bennett 756 about a year ago and completely bead blasted, got rid of all rust , powder coated and painted everything. Willing to share photos and process. My question is this......The only thing left to put back on the pump is the front and rear door. I cannot figure this out. Anyone have pictures of the alignment of the door hinges? The doors don't want to go back on properly. I am stuck on this last 15 minute job. Any help would be appreciated.

Hey while you're a bit unhinged at the moment welcome to Old Gas. And I am sure it will all be done in the 15" minutes you thought it would take.

It's been a while since I put a 756 together and there was something about those hinges and pins that are different than the other Bennett pumps. If I remember correctly there is a hinge stop on the hinge that only lets the door open so far. If I remember correctly the hinges had to been open half way and the door Parallel to the pump and then put on the hinges. I could be wrong. I had to take a hinge off and try it on the door to figure it out. Richard

Sounds like a nice project comming together.
Patience plays huge on installing and fitting the doors.
If it isn’t going right walk away and come back later.
