I was finally able to purchase this pump after seeing it in an old building years ago. It is in excellent original condition and looking at the paint
scheme, seems like it may have been a Calso pump last and possibly Shell prior to that.
BUT as you can see it is missing the little showcase area and that is where I could use some help to get it back to original.
So asking if anyone out there may have a parts manual with diagram of this pump or perhaps pictures of an unrestored one that is complete
in the showcase area. I will purchase parts diagrams or what ever it takes. thanks in advance for any help.

These are all I have. A friend gave them to me several years ago.

Pretty amazing that they would go to all that trouble to just showcase 1 oil can. One of the coolest pumps out there for sure! Congrats!

Very, very cool pump. One of my favorites. My friend has two of them (yes, I said two!!). I can’t remember if one is a showcase or not (it might be a cash recorder). Either way, next time I’m there I will check and let you know.

It might be a few weeks and don’t count on me, because I’m thinking it’s a cash recorder.

Such a great pump you have. Nice find and purchase.

I would like to thank everyone for the info provided and especially oldgasser Eric for some excellent pictures.
I believe I have the info to get the 2 little showcases needed now.
