We found this old pump in eastern North Carolina about 6-7 years ago while I was stationed at Seymour Johnson AFB. This was before I was a collector, dad bought it and brought it home. Here is a picture of it as we found/ bought it. It looks to me sort of like a Tokheim 620-B like on page 281 of Jacks book?



Dad had the base painted red, got the skins done in white. Getting ready to paint the handle tommorow so we can put it all together.

Where is a good place to get the rods that hold the top on, cylinder in place? We would like brass.

The top



What we have so far

Wes. Try a welding supply store for Brass or get Andy at Gaspump Heaven to make you steel cut to the correct length. PS My dad is also a big Sinclair collector.

Wes, I answered my own question from the other post. That is a Tokheim visible, I think a 620-b as I do not see a gate value. The gate value would tell you that it is a 610, dry hose. Did your dad fill the cast before paint? I think they are neat pumps but you don't see many.

Very nice Wes. It looks like you are staying busy in retirement.
