Can anyone tell me how to remove paint from the two different tags on the outside of my pump without damaging the tags? Does anyone know how to idenfify the age of the pump, is there a date somewhere? And the all illusive nozzle, I have read all kinds of post on this site about nozzles and what they should cost ($25-$35) can anyone give me a lead on where to purchase a Tokheim nozzle for my pump for that price? and Ebay is crazy high. Any help on any of my questions would be great as I am just starting out. Hopefully my pictures attached
Thanks, Mike

Paint thinner and a scouring pad to remove the paint. There might be a date on the Tokheim tag. However, I believe that it's a late 40s-early 50s pump.

There was also a tall version of this pump.

after you clean them as badgas said,you will have to repaint them.i take flat black and then after it dries go over with fine sandpaper on a sanding block.the raised numbers then come up and looks like new.repros are also available.


Looking for gas,oil related clocks,especially neon and spinners .clock repair available. Mick

Thanks for the advice, I was trying to remove the paint without having to repaint the original plates, thought there might be some kind of secret since lots of people have already restored these old pumps. Any other tips on removing the paint, or how to date the pump, or purchase a nozzle?

FYI: The "tag" under the nozzle holder in the 1st photo isnt a tag. Its a smooth piece of SS that protects the paint from the nozzle handle.

Keith, that is a beautiful brass Tokheim nozzle. Not sure that is the correct spout for my 39. Dont suppose you have one with a solid nozzle? The script on the side is just wonderful, please let me know if you have a solid nozzle one? Just started looking and will consider this if it is still available and the correct one does not come up soon.
Thanks for the reply, you are the first to show me one.
Mike

Here is the only other Tokheim nozzle I have. It is a 963 with a long spout and a hook. I do have some aluminum and other brass nozzles but they are OPW's and Buckeyes.

That too is a great looking nozzle and I dont mean to be so picky but not really looking for a nozzle with a hook. Thanks for both offers and keep me in mind if you find either an aluminum or brass 1063 or 1069. I think that is the correct nozzle for my pump.
Thanks again,
Mike
