Hi guys, new to the forum and looking for some info on a Eco 45. I have a few pumps, but never an air meter. Came across this model 45, and picked it up. Can’t find any information or other examples. Anybody have an idea of what it worth?

Thank, Craig

I suggest "An Illustrated Guide To AIR METERS identification and price guide" by JACK SIM. And if you don't already have the gas pump bible, get that too.....GREAT books, he put alot of time and research into them.

Your air meter is very nice, but reminds me of a day I had skidding logs. As I was going up and down the same trail, I noticed the small green trees I was running over were becoming blacker and blacker. I thought, huh, is that motor oil or hydraulic oil? I thought it must be hydraulic because my oil pressure gauge still read 40 psi. As I finished the day, I kept close watch on my gauges, still at 40 psi but in the back of my mind I knew hydraulic oil wasn't black. The next morning, I check the oil like always and the engine oil was way low, I mean almost empty. I hopped up on the seat and I noticed the gauge still read 40 psi, WITH THE ENGINE OFF! son of a ..... fortunately, no damage.

I have color pictures and a parts manual for the 45.

My Gas Pump Bible book is also available along with the Air Meter ID book.

I don't do PMs, so email me at jhsim@petrocollect.com for information.

Thanks guys. My post got edited and moved to the value forum.

Not so much concerned with value, as just some information about it. I know it’s early 30’s, just can’t find any other examples. Are they rare, desirable, not desirable, not worth restoring, etc.

Thanks

Great find. I would value it at $1500-$2000. I have parts list available for $2 plus shipping, "Care and Adjustment" info for $4 plus shipping.
The parts I make for it can be found at www.gaspump.com

I would not do anything to that meter other then clean it. It's too darn nice to be restored. Great find!


Have gas all the time

Thanks guys. Appreciate the info. Unfortunately I keep all my stuff in the office or living room, so this will be a little tough to display how I would like. Probably trade this guy for another pump!

I have to agree on not restoring it. Just too nice and original looking.

As a wall/pole mount meter, it would look fine displayed on a shelf or cabinet top.
