I don't have any stationlighter pumps but would love to own one someday. Several years ago i was restoring an Erie 748 and wanted to find a Pylon-Lite for it. I was at the It's a Gas show in Columbia that year and ran across what I thought at first glance was the Erie lite I needed so I snatched it up. When I got it home and examined it closer and tried to set it on the pump it was nowhere close to the same base as the Erie light I was looking for. I posted it on here back then and DB had me send him a bunch of pictures and measurements to try and figure out what it was for. He could never figure it out and nobody else ever did either. He wanted to buy it from me and I would have probably sold it to him if we had been closer together to do a swap or something but I ended up keeping it and still plan to paint it up nice and display it somewhere around here. I think it might be a light that was used to mount on a retaining wall at a station or something of that nature because it doesn't fit any pump that I can find. It appears to be a Revere bonnet and finial but the rest is a mystery. Anybody have any ideas now?.....Gb

Erie 70/71 and 90/91.

I'm still looking for the cast iron base for my unit (as shown on the yellow unit in the last photo).

This is a wayne lighter from my collection. In the second picture you can see what the correct metal plates look like to fasten it to the top of the pump.

This is an all original early Tokheim 39 stationliter clockface pump that is 💯 percent complete and heavy. This pump has everything going for it to be the best 39 I ever hope to own! Found laying on a Mattress in the middle of a scrapper yard somewhere in Kansas! It features the early cast base, the four window advertising glass openings, aluminum faces , and the light tower.

This was found on my way to Iowa Gas one year.

Wayne 70 station lighter standard and vapor proof. Sometimes called explosion proof. On the west coast the vapor proof were required. The vapor proof has screw on jars (or fish bowl on station lighters) that go over the light bulbs. Wayne and Tokheim are the only ones (that I have seen) that have vapor proof station lighters. All pumps had available vapor poof lighting inside the pumps, at least during the time period that they were required on the west coast.

Here is Tokheim`s vapor proof station lighters from a Tokheim shop manual. The 36B version has a completely different harp and bonnet than the standard model. The 39 looks the same with the addition of the "fish bowl".
