I think what you have is a gasoline cart? Wayne built the Model 228 in 1917-27. used in factories or filling stations, according to An illustrated Guide to Gas Pumps. Written by Jack Sim, on this site. He would probably have some literature showing it together? I currently have an unrestored Boyle Dayton gas cart on my site under "For Sale" Pumps. The wheels on your unit would have round holes instead of heart cut-outs. Paul www.severngaspumps.com

Many times patent dates are of no help, what you need is the Model number for the tank.

First of all a picture is necessary if you do not have the model number. Your tank is probably pictured in my Gas Pump ID book (out of print), but Wayne made many all a little bit different.

I would suggest you go to this page of my website: http://petrolianacollectibles.com/wayne%20pumps.htm
then start clicking on the very low numbers on the left side. Your tank probably has a model number of below 100.

Just saw the post above this one, again to that webpage and click on the 228.
