I have 2 Boyle Dayton visible pumps that I got without the skins attached.My question is do I just use sheet metal screws or is there something special it takes.What is the correct nozzle for a Boyle Dayton model 87?

If your looking for the correct nozzle, I’d also look for the correct hardware. It doesn’t use sheet metal screws.

I'm trying to find out what it does use and maybe a source.

Actually, those 87s did usually use sheet metal screws down the sides and a 1/4-20 round head bolt at the top center of the skins. You’ll have to look hard for the hole as it’s often times crudded up. If it’s an early Boyle Dayton it used the top nozzle...later Wayne pumps used the bottom style.
