I recently bought an Eco Islander 246 AWT NL . Although I've bought and worked on a lot of pumps , this is the first air meter for me . According to Jack 's book , this model would have come equipped with a pole but no light . So I'm sure its a long shot ,but if anyone has that assembly for it I'd be interested . Also this air meter is missing the back cover , I'd be interested in that also . Thanks Old Gas for any help

This is Jack of St. Louis. If your intention is to return your ECO to the original way it left the factory the letters on the Model tag tells you what it included.

But, if you purchase a new ID tag, you stamp it any way you want.

Since your meter has a extension on the back of the head, something was originally there.

My assumption is that you don't have a copy of my Air Meter Identification book. If you did you could see on pages 65, 66, 67 and 68 all the ways you could order this meter.

Years ago in Indianapolis I spotted an empty service station, but the ECO Islanders were still there. On one end was a ECO like yours, off the back was a pole supporting about 12 feet of florescent lights, on the other end was just a pole holding up the lights. I am only mentioning this to infer once you put a pole on the back of your meter you can attach anything you want. This page of my website shows many of the options you have. http://petrolianacollectibles.com/eco-240%20parts.htm

I just notices you did include the Model number above. AWTNL: A, air; W, water; T, tower, NL, no light. This meant that when it left the factory, it just had a tower (the curved thing that supported the pole) which is missing from your pump. This item was offered as a reproduction years ago, but I don't know if any one is making them now. From this you just slide in a pipe, Let this pipe support anything you want. Find an original Revere light, or a pylon-florescent light, or anything you think would look great.

I have a great deal of original literature for your ECO, contact me if you are interested.

Doug , yes I saw that on Ron's web site . I had that down with my parts needed list . Jack answered one of my questions , I basically use what ever length of pipe I want , and what ever type of light . Thanks for your response , if you don't mind , I may lean on you some if I get stuck during the restoration . Stay safe , Ron

Looks like I need to find or make the 4 " STOPS " that went into the slots on the brake drum on both springs . There were 2 stops on each spring . Jack , is that something you'd have left over . Thank you Old Gas.
