I have the stationlighter top and the light assembly but I don't have the sheet metal mast or tower that goes between the two. I would like to find an original, but if someone has pictures and dimensions of an original, that I could make a copy from, that would also work.
Thanks for any help on this.
Spencer

Thanks for the pictures Dick. I'll start with the conduit and try to find some good pictures of the sheet metal so I can make it. I'm assuming it's two haves screwed together. I know it will be a once in a life time to find one.
Thanks Spencer

LOL!
There are 10 Separate pieces of sheet metal that makes up the 36B S.L.
Plus to do it correctly the Top Casting on pump has 4 extra holes for the S.L. Mounting.
