Good morning everyone, I am new to the vintage gas pump hobby. I have finally purchased a Correct measure pump for $200.00. Feel free to direct me to the best sources for value, parts, history of company and general info. The tag on the pump appears to indicate that it is a 10H-WH. does anyone know what the WH stands for?

Thanks, Dokako

I am sure there are many good vendors. I have used Ron Scobie @ gaspump.com , Vic's 66, Gas Pump Heaven, Past Gas and T-ways . They all delivered what I ordered without issues. Ron Scobie and T-ways have gone out of their way to help me.

Everyone has their own vision for gas pumps. From what I can see in the photo, I would fix the lights, install a globe if it originally had one, change out the nozzle, and enjoy it.

The letters following the "10" indicate how the pump operated. "H" was for hand operated: "E" indicated electric operated; "H-E" indicated hand or electric operated.

I have one picture in my Gas Pump Identification book of the 10-W-H. The picture shows the pump to be a Tall 10, but I have no information what the W stood for.

I have a few things items posted on my website at:

http://petrolianacollectibles.com/correct%20measure%20pumps.htm

but I have a great deal more that didn't get to the site.

Very nice pump and blue glass to boot. You could add a zero onto that price and still be near 'retail.' Great buy.

I'm with Steven G; don't restore it, it looks great the way it is. Put some new wiring in it and throw a globe up top.

Or you could sell it to me for $400 and double your money... Lol. JK. Enjoy it.

I have finally gotten around to working on my Correct Measure 10H pump, however I have not been able to find many pictures of Correct Measure pumps to help me with original paint and colors. I purchased a PCM guide to pump restoration, but I did not see any pictures of a Correct Measure pump. Can anyone direct me to the correct book or person that can help me.
