Hello everyone. Can anybody give me suggestions on what to use in place of site glass spinners. I am unable to locate a pair for my pump. Paul from Severn Gas Pumps suggested using marbles in place of the spinners. Before I do this I just wanted to see if anyone had any other ideas or ever had this issue before.

Thanks

Marvin

20+ years ago before there was anyone making any parts, we either had to find the originals OR make parts off of pictures.
If there is a will, there is a way.

What pump is it going on? I have made them out of lexan and spray painted with plastic paint, worked great.


Thanks, Phil
