I picked up another pump, Bennett 371-F, the four-ad top shown on pg 75 of Jack's book, it is shown with the islander lighter. I haven't seen the 371 displayed that way, are any of those lighters still around, for sale? Thanks.

I've seen SL's for Wayne, Tokheim, & Gilbarco but never for Bennett that I can remember. I just had some beat up ones that I let go off relatively cheap, but I'm pretty sure they were all Gilbarco's. I really good one can be really high in price as DB said.

Here is a picture of a friends Bennett 646B, it also has extra supports inside the pump to support the staion light. Wish I knew where the staion light is. Richard

I have mine stored away, but here is a drawing of what your looking for. The pipe is approx. 36" tall. Top cap [on top of bonnet] is castiron.

This is the actual piece that the SL screws into.
