Decided to machine some missing parts out of my scrap.I don't know how I was able to get the meter tube packing gland and nut
off without destroying them. Also made a "sort of"diverter cap.

Made the meter tube handle out of an aluminum bearing housing and hot rolled rod. Also need to make up the 5 gal locator fingers. The only repros I found were for the 10gal.

Spent quite a bit of time fitting the conduits. Cutting and rethreading and the connectors barely tighten down together.
The bannana nozzel was a local auction find. From the Voc-Ag Shop at my high school,their scrap pile provided the stone guard material.

I guess this is where I am at this point. Sorry for the barrage of photos. I finally got the knack of resizing the photos! Still looking for a restoreable base with pump unit. A quick flow shutoff valve. The locator fingers I guess I will have to fabricate. A white fabric hose would look better. The "goodwife" indulged me and bought me a price box for Christmas!

The yellow ended up to be a dead on match of the original first
coat of paint. The layers after were brushed red oxide next a medium green and finally flat black. I repainted red oxide inside.
