I hooked the air to the meter for the 1st time and it pumps all the time. Are there any adjustment i can do so it stops doing this.

No doubt your mechanism needs rebuilding. I suggest you start by purchasing a copy of my Service Manual, actually, I am going to rename it "ECO Restoration Manual." The reason for this is that I took the old manual and rewrote it, first using language you can understand, and putting all sections in the order you would use to rebuild the mechanism. This manual also includes information if you are just repairing one item.

We also offer a service where you ship the mechanism to us and we completely rebuild the unit, and send it back looking brand new, calibrated to within one pound and it is guaranteed to work. I have personally restored over 500 of these meters, plus we have also have rebuilt over 550 of the mechanisms for customers.

We also offer parts used in the restoration. All this can be seen on this page of my website: http://petrolianacollectibles.com/eco%2090%20parts.htm

I am also the author of the Gas Pump Bible and the Air Meter Identifications books, they can be seen at: www.gaspumpbible.com

Thanks for the reply Jack, i plan on getting your manual soon. I also saw that i need a right wheel, plastic is broken so it doesn't spin.

That meter looks like it is in nice condition, a new set of chrome and some wheel decals will make it look great.

Did you hold the lever down and see if the air stops?

i did hold the lever down and it works but the bell keeps dinging like it pumping air. Could the calibration be way off, i think the crank was turn all the way up and back to 0. The right wheel is broke too so it turns freely

Hi, Rob. Just go ahead and order Jack's book at this time. It doesn't cost much, and will help you eliminate all the guesswork. Best of luck in working on your very nice air meter. John
