...very nice! Just easy-to-find parts now!

...I'm guessing the individual 'halves' are actually identical, just rotate one 180 degrees to assemble them? Are there ID plates on each half?


Looking for better Gulf items: signs, globes, cans and paper - especially porcelain Gulf flanges, and Gulf A-38 & A-62 ad glass...

Just one tag. The reset handle and vent are on the front versus normally on the side.

Ryan,

That is a great story and an excellent pump. I can imagine your thoughts as you first scrolled down the Craigslist ad for the first time and realized it was for a 66. Especially since you needed it. That is a great feeling. Then I know the next feeling... 'man I got get that thing in my truck before someone else does'... lol. Good grab. Congratulations.

I showed the pump to my wife the other night. She though it was neat, so I told her how good it was going to look in the living room (as it sits). She said if I went and picked up the new couch I could move the pump in tonight, LOL

What a great find, Ryan. Being able to recognize what you need put you in a great position. Glad it was close enough to you to make it happen without too much hassle, except for those keys. wink

Eric, that 66 looks outstanding. Sweet looking inside and out.
