I'm reassembling a wayne 70 pump and there are some funky stainless bezel clips that are stripped and/or have fasteners broken off in them. They're soft... don't know what kind of metal they are. slightly rectangular and they are "staked" into the bezel.
What are these clips/fasteners called and are they available new? I need a bunch.
Thanks!

I don't know of anyone repoping them. I use JB weld to put them back on. Some times you can get away from using the middle one on the add glass bezels. Richard

There is a guy in Harrington, Delaware who is making these pieces out of aluminum. Call Turkes Farrier Supply. 302-270-3549. Ask for Terry and tell him that Paul from Severn Gas Pumps referred you. He is a blacksmith by trade and saw a need to make these. Good Luck, Paul

I'm using the original bezels which are apparently different than the repro bezels.
Had a really nice conversation with Terry (mentioned above) and he told me the repro bezels have studs. So I guess this is only an issue for those of us wishing to use the original bezels. I encourage anyone with this issue to contact him and he can make a replacement piece that will work.

This question has came up several times, and I did not answer before. Here is what I did to replicate the original clips. I got a Bar of 50/50 solder, tin and lead. which is about 10 inches long and reqtangler about 1/2 by 5/8 inches. This is very easy to work and pretty strong. With a fine tooth hacksaw, and a small three cornered file you can cut and file identical fasteners. all you need is one original to copy.the small tip that has to extend thru the stainless piece should be just long enough to squeeze with a small pair of vise grips. to swedge it into the frame. this leaves just enough room to drill a pilot hole for an 8/32 tap. I try to drill and tap the hole before installing, that gives a good thread. It takes about 30 minutes to make one clip. Trust me, after you screw up the first few, it is easier. Norm
