Good morning to all:
Most here do not know me or what we had produced in the past. 15 years ago We came out with the Mobilgas and Mobilgas special lenses that would fit into the Martin Schwartz pumps. We went on later to include Sunoco and Conoco lenses, and finally the 36 tops that Andy had at Park Drive Garage. I have always wanted to make this top or at least try, but never had a glass one in my hand. After viewing this post now, I would be happy to assist in reproducing these to help out people needing things now and in the future. I believe that there is a very small market out there, and that was true of the Conocos and 36 tops. But given the choice, people might think twice about restoring one of these pumps. I would however agree with some of the other posters here that it may or may not have an effect on original ones. In some instances the originals may be of more value just because more of that model pumps are being restored, and some may then want only original parts. I am open to suggestions.
Thanks


Craig

I do not care who makes the top, it sounds as if we have two people willing to try. I myself have a pump and would buy one. Whoever wants to do this, go for it and ask people to put down a %25 deposit on the top. This would in turn help with the molding and production costs up front. T-way is willing to use his top and gracious we are for that. I will take one and send my deposit.


Thanks, Phil

I have to agree with Craig. If most people are given a choice, I bet they would like to buy a repro of this top to restore their pump. Many people just lurk and read forums and never post. Many buyers won't comment on a purchase until they see an actual product. I hope you can make it happen Craig, I look forward to buying one of these tops if you do.

Craig:

Give me a call on our Toll Free Number: 866.546.4067.

Or drop me a line at T-ways@email.com.

Maybe we can get some of these done for the people that want to restore these great looking pumps.

Later . . .

I'm fine with paying $500 for a repro top. That's nothing in comparison to the price of some of the original globes are selling for. I know that repro globes are a lot cheaper than $500, but still, having a repro top for the Erie is better than nothing.

I'm down to put down a fair deposit.

oldnfuelish -- thanks for the welcome. I've been reading posts here for several years and it never ceases to amaze me how the big-whigs in the hobby think everything they have is gold and the little guy with a pump or two has got junk. I can't believe that if they are really into promoting the hobby, restoring pumps, and not in it for the investment postential, that they would not be overjoyed at the prospect of having a quality reproduction part that would help people out. It seems that some folks are more interested in hoarding than helping.

I would definitely buy a reproduction top if one became available (or an original, for that matter). I would also be happy to put down a deposit as long as I could be assured of the quality of the part.

Having read all the posts after my intitial one here, I am very hopefull that we can bring this item to everyone. I am not interested personally in getting a deposit from anyone or front money on this, as I would want to do the best we could and then release it for your inspection. Nothing worse than disappointment. We will seek the necessary things on this and try to keep this site posted.
Thank you for your help and encouragement.

Hi guys

Is anyone going to reproduce the metal top as well? Even in another material?
