I am trying to restore an Erie 71 pump. I am new to restoring pumps and I am having a terrible time locating any information on the Erie 71 pump. Very few of the restoration outfits even have any parts for them. Does anyone out there have any information, pictures, parts, and especially advice for me? I am also trying to locate a glass top for the pump. I guess it isn't a globe, but rather a milky colored piece of glass that has a hump in the middle. There is an old post with a picture on this forum where a guy sold one. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Finding a glass top for any pump is expensive. Most are worth more than a restored pump w/ globe.
T-way on this site has the largest collection of ERIE 70/71's that I know of.
Jack Sim has a web site full of brochures for sale of most pumps & equipment found around old stations.
Joe Yocom can restore or help with the VR/CLOCK mech.
T-way & myself can help with custom decals/adv. glass

Good luck finding one! I also have the same pump and it's missing the top.

Here is a picture of mine. It is also missing the top. I also couldnt find the globe adapter when i was attempting to restore this pump. So i took a metal coffee can flipped it upside down and placed a globe ring on top. You cant tell thats what it is until you get real close to it. Also i used a piece of flat metal and bent to fit where the stainless should go. I was being real cheap on this pump. Eventually i will break it down and redo it right, but it works for now. I have seen t-ways stainless and it is very nice im sure Rons are as well. Good luck and post some pictures.

I have all the stainless trim pieces up at the top, but I am missing some of the clips that hold them on. I also am missing the stainless trim that goes around the window on one door. I can't figure out how the glass is supposed to be held in the doors. The stainless that I have that goes around the area for the nozzle is not good -- it is pretty bent up. The rest of the pump is in pretty good shape. Mr. Scobie -- is the parts breakdown just a list, or is there an exploded view of the pump? As far as the glass on top goes, I really want the milk glass top rather than a globe and am prepared to pay what it takes to get one. All the pictures and help so far have been great -- please keep them coming, Lord knows I need the help!

One other thing I'm missing is the nozzle itself. I don't even know which one it needs.

Cant help you with the nozzle sorry. The trim i would just use double sided tape. Im pretty sure the glass is on the frame not the door, it goes behind the face plates. Good luck with the top it will be hard to find.

I believe that all or most of the nozzles used by Erie were Buckeye nozzles. I have never seen a nozzle with the Erie name on it.
I have a section on my website that identifies many of the nozzles that were with the pump when it left the factory. A fair pictore of your nozzle is at: http://www.petrolianacollectibles.com/erie%20nozzles.htm

I'll look through the 100s of nozzles I have and see if I have one for your pump.

Not looking to start a repop vs original war here but is there some reason why nobody's made a mould and reproduced (marked of course) that top? Seems like 75% of the 71s out there are missing that top so I'd think there'd be a market for it.
