Hello,

Looking to find a decent original gate valve that were utilized on a Fry 17/117 pump. I generally see a gate valve with a curved handle on these pumps...

Any direction appreciated!

Dan,

I believe we talked about this valve and, although it may be period correct, it does not have the curved, over the top, on/off handle I usually see on many other pumps...

Thanks for the reply!

Thanks for the replies!

Dan,
Does the Buckeye valve usually have the 90 degree elbow attached and/or is this an additional part...?

Anybody have a functioning valve for sale...?

Thanks again ! ! !

original buckeye will have 90 degree attached, its like a garden hose bib on both ends, matches the fry hoses ,if 90 degree became unusable you would just replace it rather than the whole gate.

Did you ever place a price on your "Gate valve"? How many are spoken for? Thank you, Dan.

Gas pump heaven carries one under fry parts. It has straight handle but Ron Scobie has the handle you want on his site.
