Anyone have pictures of Reset side panel of a WAYNE 70 w/ Side Reader Totalizer? IF it was installed by factory, there should be a small door for reading Totalizer.
Please Post.

This is the only 70 I have, you can read the totalizer through this door.

What he said. They used side readers in earlier 70s.

For what it's worth; IMO the side reader was not a factory installed part in Wayne 70's but rather a replacement part out in the field. Since the earlier 70's would be the oldest pumps in service they are more likely to have had the VR's changed out more times due to more years of service.

Yes, you could see that through the side door on the parts pump I got. Just looked at the old panel and it looks the same.

I'd bet 60's w/ front readers were still in retail service when switched from side readers.

You're absolutely right, the flip side of the coin would be that;
there are W 60's out there with front readers. Again, this would be due to parts being replaced in the field.
