For the pump of the month this month I decided to do all Clockfaces. I think this should get a lot of intersting responses and a lot of pics of beautiful pumps because they didn't make a clockface that wasn't beautiful.

I'll start the new month off with a couple of pics that I have posted before. If you're like me, you can never get enough of clockfaces. The first is a Tokheim 850, one of my favorite pumps. The other is an Erie.

I've seen a lot of so-called restorations on pumps but you really do a 1st class job. Great work Gary.

By the way, what is your address, where are the pumps located, do you have a big dog and when is the next time you will be out of town?

Awesome Don, just awaesome. What great pumps! Even though the General Petro Museum has left the left coast, I think it could easily be replaced.

more drool , more drool . - I totally love clockfaces but have none in my collection yet. I do have an old Bowser Xacto sentry but it didnt have the clockface part in it - I think someone swiped it years ago and someone fabricated some sheetmetal to replace it -

It makes a cool back porch light - but someday if I ever find the clockface for it I will be super happy. Keep posting those great clockface pumps and I will keep drooling.

Hubba, that's a pretty cool idea.

Here are a couple of pumps out in the garage. One is a Wayne 861 and the other is a Service Station Equipment Co. model 154. The SSE 154 is a rare variation of the Bennett 150.

Hey guys,check out page 70-71 of Jack's book for a close up of the SSEC/Bennett 154 faceplate. Although the book is showing a 134, they look identical. Very cool faces. Hey Utah, you related to Tim Rohr?

Here's my contributions to your pump of the month post. The first is an American 2237-D Double that found me...this woman nearby had bought a hobbie farm and was cleaning it up. She called in a scrap iron guy to pick up the junk,including this pump. Her father happened to visit her and told her he knew a guy (me!)that might pay something for it and not to let the scrap guy take it until she checked with me.
The second pump is a Butler 34-C cash recorder. And the third may be stretching the subject a bit but it is a Themis clock-visible from France. Someday soon I hope to find time to restore them.
