First time Pump Restoration advice #758065 12/08/2020 11:22 PM
by wolfmanwooley
Just got a Tokheim 39 Tall and have finally got it disassembled ( what an adventure). It was very rusty and will need a couple of body panels. I have a few questions regarding desirability of repop panels vs repairing existing panels. One is rusted through and will require extensive restoration. Is it worth restoring vs buying reproduction vs a good used ?
I am ready to send the chassis to sand blast and powder coat and need to know what color is correct for a restoration?
I have all the original internals but they are in poor condition and am trying to decide exactly what should go back into the rebuild. Any comments on this would be greatly appreciated.
Also looking for a source of parts to rebuild/restore main switch plunger as well as the computer. There has been a mouse colony living in the computer and an incredible amount of material is stuffed inside. I have been removing it and have 2, 5gal buckets full of mouse nest. Not sure of the viability of trying to restore the original.

Your comments/ advise will be appreciated.
