This pump was a real rough mess when I got it which made it a bigger task than I wanted but I am pleased with the results considering what I started with.

This is a great site and this is my first week on it and it has been very helpfull !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My current project is a Tokheim 36B.

Nice resto!!! Do not under any circumstances let Dick Bennett near the top of the 36B you are working on or he will do a Houdini on it and it will disappear... j/k Dave Folck
