I need ID opinions on the right pump in this old picture. I have another closeup of the left pump only and am positive it is a Gilbarco 86. I have Jack Sim's pump book but have not been able to enlarge this picture clearly enough to make a determination of the pump on the right side.
Thanks!

Really hard to tell but I think it may be a Bennett 371/541.

Can't really tell from the picture but if they are Standard pumps there is a good chance they are G&B 96's or M&S 80's.

I agree it is very hard to be sure. The left pump appears to be more square. The pump in question on the right appears to be wider to one side i.e. the front (door side). Bowser 575 and Gilbarco 96 both fit that description.

I agree with the Bowser 575. The top is to flat for a Gilbarco 96. Also the window above the face is to small for an ad glass. It looks like the sight glas for a Bowser 575.

I just re-read the post. My dyslexia kicked in, the one on the right is a Bowser, you can see the stepped out doors on the tall base.


Thanks, Phil
