Many Many times this has been visited, but times have changed. Picked up a very nice 36B I believe still hooked up under an overhang. Had to unhook in which have not done so in about 20 years. This is a very nice original pump with the complete guts in it. Man is it heavy, but as I say times have changed and I am not sure that I want to keep it. I would have to restore and can't just have it this way. If I sold and of course if I kept it should I now remove the guts. Times have changed and many people want the insides still it in. Just moving it around is a misery and no way this would go into anyones house.
Thoughts people ??

I think everyone knows my opinion by now on guts. Here's what I do now. If I'm going to sell it, I leave intact and advertise that I can gut for them. If I'm keeping it, it's getting gutted....

Keep the guts in it,for what ever you do.
But if you go against the norm today & gut it,let me know how I can pick up those guts up from you so I can give them to someone who has a 36B. smile

Can't believe the camera does not work anyway but this. I can change the picture and it still goes back to sideways. I do have the little plate there, just took it off. No tag, pump plate screw holes either.
sorry

Were the trim pieces painted, polished or plated, they are pretty good but seem to not have been plated.

How much do you think a ad glass top would run If we could not find the one here?

Times have not changed on this topic. Still a few that want guts in most don't. No way I would put one in the house with the guts in and anyone that knows how to handle a pump could easily steal with guts in. Kind of the same issue as with cans with or without oil. The norm on that one seems to drain them so why not gut a pump??
