Ok guys, after nearly a decade search I finally was able to buy this part that was missing from my Bowser C81. Before I put it on I’m considering having it recast. But to warrant the work I’d need to have a fair amount of interest. Please let me know on this thread or through PM if you need one so I can decide.

Thanks!

Yes there was a lever made out of thin sheet metal, lots of times either gone or just bent over. Had a couple that way and did not know what went over it. Seeing this now seems that it would be a must for any C-81. Saw that on ebay and just did not know which pump it fit.

There’s a sheet metal arrow that fits through a slit in one side and which moves when the shutoff valve is moved. Like Craig said...arrow would be very simple to make.

Would it also have been used on a C-11 ?

Bringing this back to the top gentlemen. I had enough initial interest to take the plunge. It's out to the caster currently. Anyone else want to get on the list? I'm only having a very low number of these made and won't be doing it again. Take advantage!
