Years ago I came into this hobby from collecting anything Volkswagen. In my VW business I had three original split window VWs. To collected 100 gas pumps plus trucks of tons of petroliana, I sold my very large of VW collection of literature. So, I started to collect gas pump literature. I started with gas pumps, then it was air meters, then it was anything to do with anything that was used in a service station. I now have over 45 file drawers filled with just about anything to do with a service station, plus I have written five books covering gas pump identification and air meter identifications. I believe I have the largest collection of service station literature in the world. I first built a website about all of this, it now has over 12,000 images on it. My goal was to sell copies or originals copies of the gas pump literature that I had. While I may not have something to do with how a particular pump goes together, I do have some original ligature on many pumps.
Remember, the gas pump manufactures did not write manuals on how to restore these pumps. They wrote manuals on how to repair the pumps, so their manuals were designed on how to identify the part that was broke, so the manuals showed where the part was.
So, if any of you are restoring or reassembling a pump that you took apart years ago, I probably have a manual that shows where the part goes.
My gas pump books identify what the pump is, my gas pump literature shows where the part goes.
I am now 85 years old and a veteran of both the Korean Conflict and the Viet Nam conflict, and I may be the oldest member of this site besides Jim who created the site. It is time for all of this to go.
