This month will entail all of the Bennett short pumps. The first Bennett short was the 700 series, with many later models following. When pump manufacturers decided to make the shorts, I'm only assuming that economics was driving that. There's less material in the shorts versus the tall brothers although the performance and internal components are ususally the same. For Bennett it was the 600 series (tall) then the 700 series (short) using many of the identical parts in both. For example Wayne had the same scenario regarding the model 70 (tall) then the model 100 (short).
Feel free to e-mail me any pictures, I'll be glad to post them!!
Happy hunting,

Neal

Here is mom getting a little ethyl from my powder coated Bennett 766 pump for the SSR. The fluted light pole is also powder coated and all on a programmable ditigal timer.


Looking for anything from Hoosier Pete, Platolene 500 and Red Bird.

Here are a few of my short Bennetts. One of the four I have restored as Supertest and have since sold to allow me to keep the others
