Wayne 60 Questions - Tue Oct 10 2017 05:20 PM

I’m restoring a Wayne 60 wide body and I can’t be sure but the serial number appears to be #445-BD. On the same tag below this is the Underwriters Laboratories inspection number which is #441346. Is it possible to determine the year this pump was manufactured from either of these numbers?

One more question, what is the proper color for the spinners inside the glass and the area inside the glass behind the spinners? Thanks for any help you can provide.

Joe--If that's the complete serial number--then your pump was manufactured in 1936.
All the spinners that I have ever seen are made of aluminum and were left natural color. that area behind the spinner is a mild steel and is usually rusty.
If restoring this pump, I would use black paint on the backing plate, in order to make the aluminum spinners stand out.

If you need any information about your pump go to this page of my website. Your Serial number indicates the pump is a large base 60 so click on this page: http://petrolianacollectibles.com/wayyne%2060-2.htm

It is one of the first large base 60s made.
