Looking for a good base for a Mae West pump, I know I can get a reproduction, but I would like to keep the pump original. Thx

That one's an easy fix. I've fixed worse. Fix it and keep it original

I agree. Have a 14 gauge plate cut and weld it all around. Adjust the pump height when assembling and you're good to go. I have done two like this. Paul www.severngaspumps.com

I agree totally with you, this guy owes me a paint job and he asked me to find another one because it was gonna be a bit of work to make it right, just hoping to find one in better shape. I have a friend that is a metal fabricator, not cheap, will take it him and see if he can fix it Thx

I have one a guy in Huntsville committed to. Can’t seem to link up with him. If it falls through I’ll let you know.

Gary,

I bought a bunch of parts from a guy out west. I won’t be getting them until Spring Dixie in April. In the pile there is a Fry base. I would sell it, but I won’t have it in my hands for a while.

So if you don’t find one in the meantime, contact me in April.

Not sure if you found one, but there's nice base just posted on facebook in the group "Old Gas Pumps, Gas Pump Parts, and Gas Pump Memorabilia" and located in Butler, GA. Seller's name is Ryan Benns

Hopefully helpful...

Thanks. That’s me. The first guy I held it for decided he couldn’t commit to the drive to pick it up.
