Non-petro Discussion and Showcase

Guess I already started my NASCAR rant in the NFL post the other day, sorry about derailing that discussion by the way. The only race at Daytona this year that I watched even parts of was the truck race. I would flip back to it every so often to see how many trucks got destroyed each twenty five laps or so. You know you really have a great entertainment product when you start 32 cars in a race and the last restart for the win has five cars in it. In this five, the only one that wasn't half destroyed was the winner. Nice show NASCAR......If the fans go to see wrecks, the trucks at Daytona should be a sellout every year.

Put one on ebay starting at $300 and see what it brings. Then you'll know what the market is willing to pay.

I owned one with one hole in the bottom. I am not aware of this sign being reproduced. It seems there are production anomalies at times. I have an original Texaco Sky Chief Petrox Pump Plate that was produced without the date at the bottom. The reason for the two holes is still a mystery.

Hello newbie here!
GIlbarco AM1 1C, No Stand and probably originally mounted to a pole or wall? Missing the hose hook (I see I can purchase a replacement hook for $38). I have several questions and going to post as I go along if that is ok?

Work done so far:
I had to drill and extract out a broker petcock dump-valve. I retapped the NPT threads 1/2” and I’m really happy how well this repair came out! laugh I also retapped the 3/8” opening -just mainly to clean up the dirty threads! I put in a brass reducer from the 3/8” in the case threads out to a 1/2”. I put an air coupler in but final configuration will most likely be a solid attached air line?????

I have both those valves figured out for now. (I think?)

Here is where I have a question or two and have the compressor 7/16” ??? Inside copper line compression fitting that needs to be attached. Since I do not know how this was intended to be? I’m not sure the case originally has threads or just a pass through to the outside to the shop air compressor line? It is possible the case had a fitting threaded but i cannot tell? Looking for someone who has the same air meter. (There are Plenty of photos of the outside taken of this model air meter but hardly any inside meter photos on internet?)
First question is...
1) How was this air meter installed from the copper fitting inside and out through the “bulkhead”’ of the case and attached to the air compressor line? What hardware was used?

Background:
My brother gave me this air meter about 25 years ago and back then, all I did to it was repaint it and otherwise it was it was in storage.
I would like to “gift” this back to him for his muscle car collection and actually get this air meter working again vs. a static display.

I’m in the process of installing this to an air compressor for some testing and understanding how this functions, but have several questions already! I have pictures and will attempt to post to this thread and see if I can post all of my photos of this air meter.

Most of these NO-NOX signs have one hole at the top, bottom and sides. Is there a legit version with two holes at the bottom like this picture?

From what I can see in your photo, and not feeling it, I have removed film that looks similar back down to the original porcelain with the brightener. Hopefully you can have the same results.

...Paul, I'm loathe to appraise stuff - but I'm sure it's worth considerably more that that...can't imagine a sign like that at Hershey for anything close to $200...

I believe Never Dull has a mineral spirits base and aluminum brightener is an acid base. There are several makers of aluminum brightener, just google and you should be able to find a supplier Home Depot, Napa, Lowes, etc... Make sure to dilute it when starting out on your face plates and work it up as needed. I use full strength on all fasteners, nuts, bolts, pins, etc... I could send some before and after pictures if you have any concerns about using it, I have some pretty bad face plates that I havent done anything with yet that could be done up. On face plates I will use the aluminum brightener to clean them up then rinse them with water. On the fasteners I just let them dry. On pump frames I will just let dry also. I was cleaning pump nozzels with it and they did better to rinse with water afterwards. Wouldn’t recommend using on any other pump parts besides what I’ve mentioned, it will dull any trim piece if left on to long. You could start out putting a couple rusty nuts and bolts in a plastic cup and you will learn what you can do with this stuff pretty quick. It is environmentally safe, but I still use gloves, doesn’t burn like other acids. Feel free to PM me for my number and I could probably answer any other questions a little easier.
