On the clock face Erie's, there is a very thick cast glass 'window glass'.

All computing pumps have a porcelain faceplate with a stamped tin pan that goes behind it. The glass is captured between the pan and the face.

The only bits of glass you can see is the square openings for the price, gallons and the sale numbers.

And a very little known fact: there is a tiny ball bearing installed on top of the vertical shaft inside the spinner from the factory.

Later . . .

Here is an old thread that will work for this one. The "Dwaine Buck" tops have been replaced with "Paul Bell" tops.

Here are my Erie's.

This first one is an ad glass model - but the frames for the ad glass are not installed in this photo.

This is also an original glass top pump with the decorative base.

Here is one that was a station lighter model - but all I got was the cast iron base.

So I modified the base and a globe body to make this arrangement.

And now for some shots of the 'Holy Grail' for these pumps: Actual Station Light parts. I purchased these parts long after modifying/painting the base I got with the previous pump.

I have most of what I need to add a full station light assembly to one of my pumps. I just need to fabricate the little arms that go from the cast iron top to the shade assembly (shade is not shown in these photos), and have another cast iron base recast.

I said I was going to try my best to get my 70 together before the end of the month so I could post it on this thread. Well, I'm almost there but I am picking up a couple of parts from Tom at Iowa to finish up the nozzle rest so I can put the hose and nozzle on it. I won't be back til next months POTM is underway so here it is. It had the original id tag still on it so I ran the numbers and this pump was manufactured in December of 1937. Eighty years old this year! I guess it got a face lift for it's 80th. smile Oh, and after asking the questions about the faceplate glass earlier I discovered that I had the backing plates that went behind the face plate that holds the glass in after all. I had never seen one done like this, I guess it is specific to this make and model of pump. I'd be interested to know if any others use this method. I just cut 1/8" glass and it sandwiches perfectly between the faceplate and aluminum backing plate, keeping the glass in front of the computer numbers as they turn. Pretty cool. I've enjoyed doing this pump even though it fought me the whole way every time I tried to make something fit. No pain, no gain I guess......GB
