Does anyone have a photo or diagram that shows how the advertising (illuminated face, "PREMIUM" copy area seen in the rendering below) is shaped and/or attached to the pump? I've looked everywhere but can't find how this is supposed to be assembled.

thanks,

Wally

Apparently you missed Pergl on the net? www.perglgaspumpglobes.com They make these glasses new with fired on lettering. In over twenty years of restoring pumps, including several of these, I've never had one with a metal sign like your picture is showing? They have always had the frosted glass.

Thanks Paul, I hadn't seen their website (great catalog section). I'm actually using a cut piece of 1/8" polycarbonate. I work for a sign company so I can have our painter backspray the top section with translucent paint (we fabricated the Texaco panels for my tokheim interceptor the same way). The glass is probably nicer but this won't cost me anything. I found that photo from a service manual and I wasn't sure if decorating the face (glass) was the way it was done.

Here are pages of a Gilbarco 1006 parts catalog. I hope this helps. It seems the ads are solid and hook on the back??.

Thanks for posting those pages Esso Guy, that's really cool how they originally assembled them. I really appreciate your time and effort in posting them, thanks again!

I finished the gilbarco pump (see photos), I ended up using polycarbonate plastic for the face lenses and I applied reverse vinyl copy and backsprayed them with translucent white. Working at a sign shop has it's perks.

Hey, pump looks great. I was wondering if you could tell me how you got the glass into the rubber. I am currently restoring one just like it. My glass came out of the pump and had what I believe to be original molding. It is the R105 rubber. My biggest problem seems to be that the glass is slightly too big and has square corners, however the opening has round corners which also gives the molding round corners when placed around the opening. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You need to carefully cut out the back corners of the rubber trim in order for the square window glass to slip by. Paul www.severngaspumps.com

The original pumps had plastic advertising panels, there were two slots at the top of the plastic for "C" clips and they clipped onto the rubber moulding then there was a tiny hole at each end on the bottom for a wire and it fit fit onto the metal frame.. I restored hundreds of these pumps in the 50's-60's for Imperial Oil Co.

Ok thanks, I tried slitting the inside corners but didn't actuall cut a notch out for the corners. I will try this tommorow.

Hello Wes,

I just picked up a Gilbarco 1006 D 18, and been just looking at it. Everything seems to be there except the internal light(s). There is a plug which looks like the type a florescent light would use but no sign of a light ever being there. Any clue as to what may have been there, if anything?

Some Gilbarco 1000 series pumps used a circular flourescent tube which plugged in and simply laid in a couple of clips for support. Grainger carries these along with 10,000 bulbs.com. The sign was actually fired onto the panoramic face glass at the top, thereby hiding the light bulb from showing. Paul www.severngaspumps.com

Thanks gasmansgp, for some reason I didn't get notified about your reply.

I'm familiar with those kind of tubes in clocks and ceiling lights. My pump has no clips for them, but I guess I could add some. There is no evidence of any light ever being there. I'll take a look at your site.
