I’m sure Marshall Hardy will chime in.

Not one you see too often but there are a number of them out there. Yours is missing the top. I've always had a thought that these were Canadian pumps as most of them seem to be found up near the border. Do you know if yours came out of Washington?

I was dumb enough to make replacement faces for that pump in 1995. I think I have a set or two left. It is not a common pump as has been mentioned.

I picked it up at an old farm,(chicken barn) in east Salem, Or . The farm originally belonged to a State senator by the name of Cornelius Bateson. According to the fellow from N. Carolina who called me, it is a TC. which was only sold in England. Other than that, I know nothing else about it. Any idea where to get the top piece? The Tokheim top is about 1/4 inch too wide.

G&B 70 or 80 top will work, an 86 top is smaller. It will work if new holes were drilled or if the top plate that the top sits on was also used.

I have looked at the very top of this pump, and there is absolutely no indication of anything ever having been mounted up there. No holes of any kind, just the 4 bolts that hold the top on.

The top plate on your pump bolts to the frame rails behind the sheet metal. The top every one is talking about bolts to the top plate in each corner on the top plate.

I have both a G&B 80 and G&B TC, but not the 83 model you have. The tops on my pumps bolt to the top frame. I believe Matt is correct in that your top is bolted to the frame rails. My TC pump, which Jack indicates may have been sold primarily in England, came from a fellow collector who found it at a DPW garage in a suburb south of Buffalo.

Thanks for that picture. Is that what the top of the pump looks like after the dome is removed? Any idea where to obtain a top? repop or original?

Matt, this top looks new. Is it a repop? It also looks like you can mount a globe on top. Was that a factory option?
