I'm looking for a non restored wall or bench mount. I know very little about them, but I'd like one for my garage and in good working order.

I see this one on ebay. Can any one offer their thoughts about it, and his asking price.

Thanks in advance, hope to hear from some one who has one for sale.

Doug

Take a look at the ECOs I have for sale. After having restored over 300 of them I am down to the last 10 or 12.

Thanks for the replies and Thanks Mick.

I'm trying to buy it, but first I wrote Jack to see if he still works on them ? Does anyone know for sure ? I do not want to restore this, I want it functioning in my garage for my new car and motor home. It's very important to me that I have correct pressure all the way around. I'm so tired of these gauges made in China. I get different reading all the time.

Thanks Again for the replies, Doug

Here a thread that was posted last week on someone interested in buying one for 750.00.

Lots of websites you can search, kijiji, craiglist, ebay, google.. Compare with all you find and see what's best bang for your buck on what you desire out of it.

My biggest concern is that the seller did not show you a picture of the unit without the rear cover removed. The wheels show 119 PSIs, ECOs did not go up that far so something must be wrong. We offer a repair/rebuild service at: http://petrolianacollectibles.com/repair%20service.htm

If you want your unit to look good it needs to be repainted and your chrome is very pitted and needs to be replaced.
Other parts missing are the reset handle and the hose. All these parts can be found on our website at: http://petrolianacollectibles.com/eco%2090%20parts.htm

If you have any questions, just give me a call at: 314-427-3943.

Jack Sim

Since it is obvious your unit is not calibrated (ECOs did not go up to 119 psis) we offer a repair/rebuildf service:


We also offer new cvhrome to replace the pitted chrome shown on the unit, and a 1/4" ID American made hose that is not shown.
