Well I can tell you that I am happy this one is done. Not a very "freindly" pump to assemble or have to open by removing the doors.

very nice. You must be retired to have all that time to finish those pumps, or you always stay up real late to work on them. lol. all your pumps look real nice.

Not retired, retarded. I have a problem in the brain that somehow makes me come home from work exhausted but can't seem to go inside and go to bed. I think it's the only quiet time by myself.

Anybody interested in a nice 565? I will throw in my wife also, trust me it's a good deal. Just think you can replace your old wife with the new and improved version with all the upgrades and she even allows pumps in the house:)

AWESOME JOB!!! I agree with the unfriendly doors. I dread changing bulbs on my TYDOL too.
Love the before and after pics.

Welded holes. They were there but even after trying to bump round and chrome plate them they were awful

Good looking pump. Do they make LED light bulbs yet? The LED's claim they last like a million hours.

Lovely Pump, i have one also and i have had it 12 months now, the guy who restored it for me in the states told me they are bad to take apart. I have NEVER had the time to start messing with taking the doors off yet, but i have been warned so i will not remove them unless i have to. Mine is nice however i would like to see a close up shot of the reset crank (From the Outside of course) If you have time.

Thanks Tony (U.K)
