Here is a pump my wife let me put in the house. Did you ever get tired of your gas pump doing nothing? Just setting there? Well I couldn't resist doing something a little different. This is an original 850 with a little modifying. I had the trim bezels special made to the exact shape except a little deeper to accept the neon tube. Took out the original clock mech ( just sold it to Hubba ) and put in an electric clock movement. The reset knob is above, under the dome top. The lever that originally reset the clock mech. now turns the neon off and on. The lever that originally started the pump turns the globe light of and on. Nothing has been permanently done to the pump that would prevent it from being put back to it's original condition. I have made several of these over the years but the hand work involved in the fabrication is rather extensive. Thought you might like to see something different. Keep on pump'n. Tom.
