This is the G&B 80 I picked up last Saturday. I cleaned it up inside and out. Some of it was taken apart to get a good cleaning. It still has the guts, so I sprayed some lube into the pump and it still runs. The computer spins free with the reset and from the variator. This will be my only pump with the guts staying in. They are small so it is not as heavy as other pumps with guts.
I like shoebox pumps

Chris, yes ad glass can go in place of the metal fillers. This one had the metal fillers in it when I bought it. I do not like the brite yellow so it will get redone later (I bought it already painted).
I was surprised that the G & B 80 is lightweight. My G & B 70 was the heaviest electric that I have ever moved. Interesting to see the filter modification. Love that original weathered look, a true survivor.
Nice find Matt! I picked up one near Salinas right off the 101 years ago. Also in nice shape with that same top dome covering the globe holder. I stopped because I saw a tok 39 tall outside the barn from the freeway. When her son opened the barn door I saw the 80 with another pump sitting there waiting for me. Bought all three pumps for $100.00 each. Still have all three . Rob
