I ran across a visable pump back in the boondocks while traveling down the highway to pick up some auction stuff I purchased . On the way back I decided to take a chance and check it out. Soon as I drove up about a 1/2 mile long driveway the guy hurried into the house from the garage . Right then I got a little nervous thinking he was going for a gun. In a Few minutes he came back out and turned out to be really friendly guy. I admired his grandpa’s restored truck for awhile then asked about the pump and finally asked if I could go out back by the barn and look at it. He said sure. I stated it looks like a Wayne and he said yea it belonged to his grandpa and now his mother . And she had the original blue globe that was on it stored away .
Problem was I could not ID the pump . Has sheet metal like a Wayne .Only odd thing I noticed is that it has a cast iron circular gallon marker on the side sheet metal approx . 6-8 “ diameter , half way down the pump with a cast iron arrow that points to the gallon numbers . Have researched and have been unable to id the pump & it appeared to be a old old restore and everything was there except the I’d tags . I didn’t want to push my luck by taking pictures so looking for help identifying the brand et’c. Waiting for that call. Hopefully .Thanks for help on this

What do you mean -It has a gallon marker down on the sheet metal? A selector?

Yes it was a cast iron circular plate with raised numbers and had a cast iron arrow pointer (only) no tail on arrow ,
to indicate the gallon selection started at 1-2-3-4-5-6 and I didn’t count the total numbers on the dial .

Yeah, a Wayne 619 is a good bet.

That’s it , thanks all for the detective work . Now just wishing and Hoping time for that follow up call . I had looked at hundreds and hundreds of images in the past and since finding this pump and had never found an image of this particular pump. Just shows that Jacks book would have come in handy for me . Now if he gets the new pump book finished it will be my first priority.
