I picked up a G&B 10 gallon visible pump at a auction yesterday but am stumped as it doesn’t seem to line up with other Gilbert and Barker 10 gallon pumps. The model # on the ID tag is TC1-1 1386. I’ve been unable to find any reference to this number. Another difference is there are no ribbed bands along the bottom of the skins. The nozzle hook and holder also seem different on this pump. Does anyone recognize this as a G&B or do you think it was re skinned sometime in the past?

Thanks Tim! To add to what Dave was saying about the similarities to clear vision pumps in the thread you linked. I heard that a portion of the Gilbert And Barker manufacturing plant burnt down in 1927 or 1928 and apparently for two years Clear Vision manufactured these pumps for G&B while they were rebuilding. Has anyone else ever heard this story?
