I have been working on getting all the correct nozzles to go with my electric pumps. What I am running in to is what is the correct hose size? I have four pumps with the following female pipe size on each pump. National A38 1 inch FPT. National 365 3/4 inch FPT. Erie 772 1 inch FPT. Wayne 70 3/4 inch FPT. My first assumption was that the female pipe size on the pump must be the hose size. But I see many pumps with an adapter from 1" to 3/4" pipe with a 3/4" hose. Then I start guessing, maybe the 1 inch was set up if pump was used for diesel and then necked it down to 3/4" for gasoline dispense pumps. So I am really confused. Anyone have some good answers for me? Thanks, Jim

Jim, Your theory on hose size is right, I believe? I have been told by older pump mechanics that unless they were pumping diesel, all electrics used 3/4" hoses. Some pump manufacturers simply made the pumps 1" discharge in case of either option. Paul www.severngaspumps.com
