Started helping dad with another pump a couple weeks ago, believe it is a Bowser 595. I thought it was an ugly pump at first, had some pretty rough paint on it. Here is how it looked when we started.
We then field dressed it, took out the pump, motor and other parts to get it ready for the paint shop.
We picked it up yesterday, I think the paint came out fantastic, plus now it looks a lot better.
At the paint shop
At home. The colors are very bright, he did a nice job painting it.
We plan on making it an Atlantic pump, still need a second add glass like this one.
Hope to get it back together in a few days, more pictures to come.
We also gutted this pump and dropped it off to get redone. I would like to see pictures of restored pumps like this, plus ones showing how the add glasses fit in.
I also need some minor trim parts for this one, like the erie script. What size is the site glass for this one, mine has a block off plate installed, I want to add a glass.
