You need to give us a little more information. To begin with, I have been able to identify 112 gas pump made by Erie, so you need to give us the Model number, a picture would also help.

Tom is correct, it is a 743, They were introduced in 1954, There should be a ID tag on one of the sides, if you email me at jhsim@petrocollect.com I might be able to tell you when it was born. I also have some factory literature on this pump that I sell, if you are interested I can send you a list.

I'm sure someone here has done what you want to do, but it is going to require a pump, and enclosed piping and some way for it to automatically turn on.

OK Guys, thanks for the help


[Linked Image]20190907_085853

any ideas what would have been mounted in the 6 screw holes? Or has someone been there in its past life...

what or where would I search for to convert this to a semi functioning machine. tank and pump I can figure out, but I don't want to destroy OEM parts. There is a pipe that I can tap into.
