Thanks!

My kids decided to make some signs so I hung them up.

I built the shop a few years ago and insulated it, put in heat and had the floor epoxy coated.

Does anyone have any vintage photos of one of these at a gas station?

Here are a few more photos.

I took it completely apart, cleaned everything up and put new seals in the pump motor, etc.

The inside was fairly clean, so I just cleaned it all up and made sure it all worked.

The glass is new - the old jar had spiral cracked around the bottom 4 inches. I found a new glass and copied the Pyrex from the old jar (I still have stored away) and etched it onto the new jar.

The gallon markers had remnants of brass plating on them and the rods so I refinished them and hand painted the numbers and letters back onto the markers and all the tags.

When the handle comes off, the little door is pulled over to the other tab and a lock goes on to keep someone from pumping after hours. When the door is closed it actuates a lever that is connected to a valve at the bottom of the jar that then drains the left over gas back down into the tank.

I took the data plates off and matched the paint. It was all this color red originally.

Getting closer to finishing the pump.


Here is a photo of the globe and the lights installed. I added a photo of the Pyrex logo I etched onto the glass copied from the original cylinder.
I unrolled some green window tint on the inside of the cylinder so it looks like it has gas in it.

Here is the final reassembly. I added a couple of decals like those on the advertising photos for the pump.

Thanks for help in sourcing parts to the following who without I could not have finished this family heirloom:

Charlie Shaver
Ron Scobie
Vickie Hendershot
Aaron Kewish
Jim at T-way Graphics
Ken Miller
