How tall a glass cylinder is needed for my G&B 176 “ Tall Ten” pump? Diameter 10.25 OD
There is a volume calculator online. I came up with between 32 & 34 inches, but would like to know for sure. Thank you.

Jack, I looked at Tims chart the other day in regards to this thread. It was a bit of a mystery to me so I decided not to refer him to it. . There is obviously an error somewhere that has to do with the 11x19 cylinder. That height measurement must be either for a five gallon jug or would be taller for a tall ten? Or its just mismarked on Tims chart as a ten gallon cylinder(and should be for a five). I really havent seen a 176 tall, but I suppose its possible they were out there. Also, James (the orig. poster) seems to be coming up with a smaller diameter that would fit his casting. I think he came to the conclusion that his was around 10 1/2".....

And thank you too, JimT. This is why I asked, as I did use the search function and could not find that information. This must be an obscure pump with little information. If I could find a close cylinder ( within a few inches of the correct height), that has damage that would not cost a lot, and damaged skins, I would like to make this some kind of “ lawn art” for now.

Yes Jack they did make a G&B with this size cylinder, they were special pumps made specifically for Ohio. I have found 2 of them in the last 30 years. Scott Anderson wrote a huge story about how the weights and measure laws in Ohio were changed. People felt they were getting cheated on their gasoline amounts when the sun came up and would shine on the cylinder. They thought this could cause the gasoline to rise like a thermometer so they changed the requirements and made the cylinders longer. See all you folks at Michigan Gas, Jerry says its on Sunday May 20th this year, one week AFTER Mother's Day this time, lol.
