Attached is a picture of a Bowser Varley 318 which I was fortunate enough to purchase recently. I believe this particular model may not be as common as the Xatco 310. The primary difference between the two pumps is the manufacture of the clockface unit. Unfortunately there was no visi gauge with the pump and I would certainly appreciate it if some one had a gauge they would be willing to part with that fits any of the following models; 310, 311. 318, 320, 410, 411 or 418. Any help in locating a visi gauge would make this Oldgas member finish the year on a very positive note.

Thank you,

Marshall

The 400 series is different than the 300 visi. There was also two sizes on the 300 series.

I was offered a visi gauge but I believe it was primarily for a series 400 Bowser pump so I passed. Still looking for a series 300 gauge.

Thanks Marshall

I have been studying pictures of 310 and 318 Bowsers. I noticed the 318 has the larger visi and the 310 has the smaller one. Here is a picture of the smaller one. The larger one looks the same just bigger.

Thanks for the suggestion Matt! I am looking for a gauge like the one in Al's picture and, as Bill noted, the most prominent identifier is the angled outlet. Any of the models I mentioned would do just fine. The series 400 visi is noticeably different.
