Thanks for all the kind words. Our pump won’t be an exact 100% true recreation but will be very close. You can look at it and know it’s a Wayne 71 but subtle differences. We are building it off of pictures, honestly we have never seen one in person.

Our biggest struggle is mounting the veeder root. Close to figuring out the slight glass manifold. Parts of this pump will be purely cosmetic to give the look of certain parts with our own mounts and adaptations.

Jim, we are going to use 2 tops to make 1 which is just cutting and welding. Don’t think it will be too bad but nothings been easy sir far.

Finally, BEST part of this whole build is the fact that my dad and I are doing it together.

You and you dad are doing a great job. Thats what is so cool about our hobby that guys will take on a challenge like this. I personally never liked the 71 display case but what you are doing is very cool. Glen Thompson had a couple and always tried to talk me into buying one but could never get past how it looked. Thanks for the post.


Have gas all the time

I really like the looks of them (even though they are a bit homely)and think they capture perfectly the feel of the time and of the locations where they were used. There certainly are "Better looking" display pumps. -probably just about all of them.lol Most of us cant afford or dont get lucky enough to chance into nice original display pumps but once or twice-if ever- in our collecting lifetimes. Especially now days.
