Bought a strange "Texan" visible pump (?) yesterday. The thing is HEAVY...



Has "The Texan" stamped at the base.



Does anyone have a pic of a "Texan" pump like this? I searched the internet and found a "Texan" clockface that also had "Texan" stamped on the base...

Anyone know anything about "Texans"?

The only "Texan " pump I'm aware of was a Clock Face . Certainly looks like someone cut the shell down , why I dunno. They were only about 6'4 " anyway ............. Ed Shaver

IF it hadn't been shortened for another purpose, it would have been SCRAPED long time ago!
Post a picture for us Tom.

How weird...

Tom, is the base to your pump identical to this? The one I saw on the Internet was different...

Thanks all

The base on mine looks different...(?)

Am curious about the casting, does it say "The Texan" or just "Texan"

I'm not seeing weld marks on mine to indicate where it was cut down?

Strange deal... Thanks for the pic guys.
