I figure these go to a 10 gallon visible pump BUT not sure which one???
They are tear drop shaped and very well made...
I believe they are cast iron or maybe brass...They have a square set screw on back for adjusting as each marker slides up and down the post...
Thanks for any help!

Thats what I thought!
Both my gravity pumps have tin or aluminum markers that are thin...These things are heavy duty and MUST be early!
The bottom of post would have stuck in a hole then mounted at the top?
Must have been a fancy pump of some kind???

I have some similar ones on a very early Raipdayton 5 gal. Mine mount on the outside the glass.

I Made an earlier suggestion for a section in the photo gallery for gallon indicators to help owners identify what they have or what they need. I still think this would be a good idea and I bet a lot of members would contribute. The same would probably be true for sight glass's.

Tim,
I went ahead and added a Visible Gas Pump Markers album.

http://gaspumps.info/gallery/v/pumps/Visibles/markers/

Send me images of gallon markers by email and I'll post them there.
Give me the pump identity if you have it.
If not, send the pic anyway and we'll see if we can find out.

Thanks,


Jim "Oldgas" Potts

Thanks Jim. I'll start preparing some of my picture to submit to you. Hopefully some of the old pro's can identify them for us.

As for these markers...I am going to sell them in an oldgas benefit auction! I'll take pictures today and then I'll start the auction.
Thanks for all the help in identifying...
They are either bowser or national markers...
I've had several emails and offers to purchase so in fairness to all we'll have an auction! Thanks!
PS: Jim I'll also send you pics for the album!
