Anybody have pictures of a complete Bowser C-110? We are doing a resto of one and dont have all the parts. Picture of a complete pump would really help.

Thanks!

Paul

Here are a couple of photos I collected a couple of months ago when I was looking for an unrestored C-110. They must be very rare. I could not find closeups.

Apparently, some had a motor and small gearbox (behind the shiny bulge). I was told by a man that had a C-110, that the motor was similar to a Model T or Model A starter motor.

Thanks Joe, this is REALLY helpful. My dad has this pump and restoring it for a client, but parts are missing. We dont even have the sheet metal panels, so had no idea where they overlapped, etc. Our pump does have the motor.

THANKS

What's the purpose of the empty space in the middle?

I wondered about that myself. I found nothing in oldgas or after hours of internet research. I have never seen a visible with a motor, just air driven or handle operated.

Paul, could you post photos of the pump your dad is/was restoring? I would like to see the motor and gearbox.

Did you ever determine what was located in the empty space?

Bowser C-110

I restored a couple of them many years ago, took me awhile to find the pictures.

Bruce, thank you for posting photos. It looks like the pumps you restored did not have the small motors like some of the C-110s.

Joe.
If you look closely you will see the small black motor right behind the brass selector arm and the black cord going to the outlet. Will try to find some better pictures of the motor assembly. Only the pump on the right had the motor..

Bruce.

Bruce, thanks for posting those pictures, very helpful. I didnt see it until now. You plan on keeping that pump for a while? I might hit you up for a few pictures of specific spots. I didnt realize that flip up lid has wording printed on it (we are missing the lid entirely right now) We are missing the sheet metal panels entirely too. Interesting it seems to be done different ways, maybe different versions of the same model pump, dont know? - Paul

One pump is manual operated, the other is electric motor operated.
