Hauled this baby home tonight, by the gas pump bible it appears to be a Keesee ?

Would appreciate any info on a correct nozzle.....it has a really odd holder ?

Also any input on the crazy globe holder ?

Thanks !

Definitely a Keesee. The globe holder is original to the pump, probably one of the most ornate holders you'll find.

Thanks Dave, that globe holder is original ? I really thought it was something someone might have added....does anyone else have a pic of one of these ? can anyone fill me in on the nozzle holder, it projects off the pump about 5" with about a 1" diameter hole......hard to tell but in a pic in the gas pump book it almost looks like the nozzle part inserts in this hole ? crazy I'm so confused.....

Thanks again for the input.

Here are some close ups of the things that you were referring to. The nozzle holder sticks out about 9" or so and is a real head banger, I know. Very intricate markers on the inside, and nozzle goes inside the hole in the slide cast iron side access. Dundign let me use his to recast mine.
Good luck.

Thanks Craig, my nozzle holder is a little different than yours, I'll get some pics tonight and post.....also, the indicator set up on mine is a little different too, it has a gallon marker strip on the outside of the glass ? really strange, I assume yours is etched on the cylinder ?

Any input on the globe holder ?

Thanks for the pics !

Globe holder is original from KEESEE. Not all Keesee pumps had them.
Craig's ind. are of the Fancier type Brass Die-cut w/ #'s[maybe $.50-$1.50 extra] inside cylinder.
Have seen the type you have & seen pumps w/o inside indicators.

Have seen the nozzle hanger like your & Craig's. Yours has a ring on end for a nozzle w/ a hook.

This is an Early Keesee Nozzle ID'd from a Keesee bulletin.
Good Luck of finding one, I've seen 2 others.

I could have really used that nozzle about three months ago. Pump now is up in Canada.

Thanks to all for the input ! clears up a lot ! guess I wont discard the globe holder..... :-)))

Nozzle looks like it may be a problem.....have several to use until I can find the correct one, It'll give me something to look for over the next 10-20 years ! :-)

Thanks again Z
