POTM "Pump of the Month" February 2018 - Thu Feb 01 2018 03:14 AM

Wow what a great January we had everyone! Thank you! The pump of the month for February is the Gilbarco G&B 86 Calco-Meter pump. I will also include the G&B 86 twin, and the G&B 87 which is the clockface version of the 86. These are fantastic looking pumps, the either came with an all metal sided top, or with ad glass in the top.

Here is the info from Jacks pump book.

- G&B 86: 1936. "Calco-Meter" computer pump.
- G&B 86: 1936. "Calco-Meter" twin computing pump.
- G&B 87: 1937. Non-Computing clock meter pump.

Please share if you have one or pictures of one! Thank you everyone for the continued participation.

Here is a nice close up of a 87. It is not mine and do not remember where the picture came from.

Attached is a picture of my G&B 86. I've had this pump for more than 10 years and it is in as found condition. I really like the original look.

I've always thought it was an odd spot for access doors on these pumps.... LOL. I thought they would have put them on the side.
