Here are the Pix how I get my Shell Pump ..... It was advertised in a german Classifiedsforum similar to your Craigslist.... The Pump was used to fill up the Little Tractors that work for a big Hothousecompany at the araea of Cologne, Germany .... I bought it right out of its original Place. The Pump was fully complete only the key for the case was missing ... I had to replace one Screen . did alot of cleaning and covered a part of one sidedoor with foil because this door seems to be replaced from another Pump out of the same series but with different stripecolours ( The Super-pumps had different Striping than the Diesel-Ones at this Kind of Shell-Pumps ) Greetings Andy

There were only a few damaged small spots that i fixed with enamel paint and this particular spot that had to be changed in Color but yes its now 95 % Original like it was made in 1962... The Globe is a( quite cheap )gift from a friend of mine because it makes no sense to me purchasing a glassreproduction for the same amount I spent on the whole pump 4 years ago...... Some more Pix of the Procedure attached Greetings

Actually both your pumps are wonderful--with original colors in such good condition. I couldn't imagine this pump would look so good in a greenhouse/hothouse with such high humidity. Even the inside metal seems to have very little corrosion.
Wow Andy, that pump looks so good that at first I was afraid you repainted it! Now that I know you just cleaned it up, WOW. That pump is in fabulous condition for it's age. Great pump and nice score for you.
