Looking for either the standard outlets for this lube cart or the visi units. I need the elbows, straight tube, and the spigot for the standard set up or if you have visi parts that would also be good. Thanks.

Please post a Better picture of the "Visi" Top/Bottom pieces.
In picture they appear to be SAMPLE Tubes to show what is being pumped from the tank, not a true Visi [like used on gas pumps.
I'm pretty sure they are an Add on & Not a BOWSER ITEM.

Dick, I called them a visi because I couldn't think of a better word. Here are pictures.

Didn't the oil pump up one tube and go down the other so that the customer could see it flowing? When I look at the casting it has an inlet and an outlet. I think it is a form of visi. No? OD is 1 3/8", height is about 8 3/4".

To my knowledge BOWSER didn't make those, Jack Sim Might have something on them.
The TEXACO ones I've seen were a static display & have POT METAL Castings. Your appear to be Cast Iron.

I think they are brass. I went out in the dark with a flashlight and took another look at them. They are a visi, oil went up and then down. Maybe Jack will read this and pull something out of his hat. I checked his first edition and couldn't find anything under Bowser like this.

How about a picture of the unit straight on instead of from overhead?

Will see what I can find, at least the era it was born.

Jack, I provided a photo of the bottom casting where it would screw onto the lubester. The oil has to travel up one side. The picture of the upper casting shows the transfer port. And a side profile. Hope this helps. Thanks.
