So i picked up this pump today and it has these two signal ethyl porcelain signs which are in great condition
But was wondering how do i know they are real, as the back is black porcelain aswell but no date either.
Are they the real deal and how do i date them
Thanks

Thin white border, mounting holes inward, black back if they measure 11 7/8" the real deal IMO. Randy knows the era.

The repo has the holes closer to the edge into the red. Originals are like I stated are 11 7/8". Repos are 11 3/4 or 12"

Come onto Old Gas to validate authentic, but list for sale on Craigslist. Where is the support? Maybe due to the best offer (fishing) which isn't allowed here.
