It appears that no one knows what happened to Jack's literature. Perhaps the literature is still part of his estate.

I’ve wondered what would happen to all the literature myself. Isn’t his wife still living? I would think someone around St. Louis that knew him would know. His wife was somewhat active in his marketing of the ads and catalogs so I would think she would have had someone that would’ve helped her with it…GB

Did Ron Scobie pick this up? His website gaspump.com has a lot of air meter stuff I don't recall seeing in years past.

Yes, Cindy Sim, Jack's wife, is still very much alive. I don't know if there has been a change in her address, since Jack's passing. John

I did not. I have my own collection of literature which I use to make copies.

I think I have Cindy’s number. I am not home right now. I do remember him saying it is numerous four drawer file cabinets. I forget how many he said he has, but if someone is interested it’ll take up some space.

With Jacks passing is anyone rebuilding air meter guts?
Thanks, Jeff
