OOOOOOOOPS... made a Boo-Boo in our previous posting!

ITS ACTUALLY A BENNETT 1066 SERIES GAS PUMP!

Have recently started working on our very own, first ever gas pump! Ours appears to be the version without the larger rectangular door ad glass inserts. Just has the smaller round ad glass inside the top -0- trim. Plus never seems to have had the hose guard bars.

Some of the various items, still needed:

- door, 3 1/2" round, white or whatever ad glass inserts [2]

- #? light bulbs [2] for face display fixtures

- curved door glass to cover faces etc

- #103 rubber surround for glass inserts that accepts the stainless trim pieces

- complete set of stainless trim [both sides] that fits over the rubber seals, preferably with the neccessary mounting clips etc

- ? hose guard bars [2]

Any and all, greatly appreciated!

ynot- I did a Bennett 966 recently. The 966 and the 1066 are somewhat similar in appearance. The 31/2" round disc, curved door glass,#103 rubber, hose gaurds, can all be purchased through suppliers on this site or Gas Pump Heaven. The lights are standard bulbs or the new fluorescent low watt. I use the curly fluorescent because they stay cool and are bright with minimal power usage.

I opted not to use the hose guards on my 966, but they were not available from the part suppliers at the time I was purchasing parts for my Bennett 966 pump.

I purchased the window stainless trim from Tom Buckles: tjbuckles@embarqmail.com. He is a great guy to deal with and has many original parts off pumps he parts out.His prices are right in line too!
The stainless window trim mounts with a clip that fits in the back of the trim and looks like a small nail. The nail pokes through the #103 rubber to hold the trim to the rubber. Once the nail is through the rubber, a small piece of flat steel slips over the nail to hold it together. You could use almost anything to cap the nail.

Installing the curved glass over the face...you might use language that is not suitable for children(lol). I have heard some use a piece of string to "rope" the rubber around the glass by inserting the string into the groove on the rubber and pulling the rubber edge over the glass as you go along. I had the best luck using a glass "bone" or plastic spoon and lots of slick glass cleaner to aid in sliding the rubber into the 103 slot. I believe the 103 has a lock seam on it, (can't remember without looking at a parts book). Use lots a patience on the window install...you will get it but it takes time.

Good luck with your fist pump...it wont be your last. I like the way the Bennetts look with the spear trim. I did mine in "Signal" theme with red body and black doors. I gutted the pump and put two drawers inside and made a entertainment storage for CD's and DVD's. Worked well for me.

Good Luck

Kurt

Welcome to the site!
I have several of the parts you need.
I need to check on how many of the window trim I have left. Those sell very good.
The light bulbs you need for your pump I think are the long flourescent tubes which are somewhat hard to find.
Kurt gave you some good advise on installing the glass, patience.
I also have the hose guards.
The rest of the parts as Kurt said is best to go with reproduced, Vic's 66 is a great company to deal with also.
Drop me an email and I can get back with availability.
Tom.
