Hi,

Managed to pick up a couple of gas pumps and thought maybe I should a little more about these babies.

I am clueless about what I have and would love to learn more about these things.

I have a tolkheim (1953) and a Gilbarco (1959). Both are complete and unrestored . The glass on the 53 is cracked (I think).

I do not know the model #'s or anything about these and am eager to learn!

Where do you recommend I post my questions?

Thanks!!

Welcome to Oldgas!
If you can master the art of posting pics of your pumps members can help ID them. The correct forum is General Petroliana Discussion..

Thank you everyone for the welcome smile

I am eager to be learning more and will be sailing in and out, as work keeps me on a very unroutined schedule lol.

Again, thank you, look forward yakking with all of you and picking your brains!

Welcome to the group!! Your best tool of choice for the screws would be "JAWS OF LIFE" -- borrowed from the FD! Seriously, I would soak them with PB Blaster for many days and then try removing.

Welcome! For best exposure for your question, the “General” section would help best. Happy Holidays!
