Screw Size and Hose Type - Wed Nov 01 2017 12:50 PM

What size are the sheet metal screws used to hold the "Contains Lead" signs to a pump?

What type of hose would have come with a new Wayne 60 wide body, cloth covered or black rubber? I believe the Wayne 60 wide body was made from 1936 to 1939. Thank you for your time.

I conducted a search on the Forum and found a picture of the screws shown below; taken off of a Texaco-branded pump; not sure of the pump date. Any guess on the size and length? Are they a fillister head?

I use #8x3/4 unless the holes are oversize then I use #10. Nylon washers keep from chipping the porcelain. Paul www.severngaspumps.com

Thank you Paul. Any thoughts on type of hose for a Wayne 60? white cloth or black rubber?
