Where did you get the rubber that goes around the outlet hose?

Pump looks great!!!! Glad to see you used original globe and signs!

I believe the silver rod you mentioned is the push/pull switch for the light manifold. www.thepumpdump.com might have a door. Hope this helps.

Jarvis, the rubber around the outlet hose is the original. It is torn a little, but I still used it because I could not find a replacement.

Gas Pump Heaven or any place that has window rubber for 1/8 inch glass/ad glass. It is the same as the trim around the hose outlet.

Turned out great! How did you make the sight glass look like it was filled w/gas? It has a gold glow..... Do you know what year your 766 is?

Thank you. I cleaned the sight glass, but it still had a slight yellow tint to it perhaps from the gas staining it over the years it was in use. The inside bulb then gives it a gold glow. This pump was born in April 1954.
