Can someone tell me where I can purchase 2 brass set screws that go into the jar lid of visible pump?
They are 3/8 pretty sure? Have a slot on top. And a 5/16 hole bored in the bottom that the marker rod sets inside to hold in place
Mine will have to be drilled out as they won't budge. Even with lots of heat
Thank you in advance

I used a 3/8"x24 fine thread bolt about 1 1/2" long cut the head off of it and used a hacksaw to cut a slot in the top for a flat screw driver to fit so you can adjust the slack out of the gallon markers rod to hold them in place, then put in lathe and drilled a 1/4" hole about a 1/2" deep in the opposite end for the gallon marker rod to fit in. If you don't have access to a lathe you can drill the 1/4" hole in it with a drill press or hand drill

Then your screw maybe a 7/16" instead of a 3/8" They are different sizes depending on what pump you have
