I have This 850 Tokheim clockface that has an unusual lighting system to me. I posted pictures because I am not sure how the lights would come out of it like the other 850's I have. Can someone please tell me what is going on here or how I can get the parts for an original top system.
Thanks

Interesting! That is different than both of mine. I have a round and a rectangle. Both of mine are early pumps. That whole top plate is different. I assume the visi and nozzle are on the same side as are the later pumps. I would love to see a pic from someone else that has a similar pump. Love the 850's! Alot more differences than most people realize.

Is it possible that it is the differance between a Indiana built pump and a California built pump? I know there is a differance in the lighting on Tok 34s and 36s between the two plants.

Craig, it took a bit of searching, but I think I found it for you. The problem I had, was looking for the light set up for an 850. I found two different set up's for the 850, neither seemed to be like yours. I believe your's might be a Tokheim 950? Anyway, the first two drawings are of Tok. 850's the third and fourth, are of Tok.950's. The 950's I shown, are both the same pump, just different views. Hope this helps.

Thank you for your help. Yes that is the way that the light set up was in this pump. It must have been a 950 then I would assume. I do not know how a person would turn the light on then, so I guess that I will start looking for a electrical top system for a 850.
Thanks craig
