Good day all, by chance did anyone ever print the nozzle application chart that appeared on dear Jack Sims's website? The site closed following his death, we miss Jack and all the info and parts he provided to us collectors. Thanks , Denis

Jack Sim's website is still available. On the web, go to the Wayback Machine, type in Jack's URL (www.petrocollect.com), pick one of the years listed at the top, then pick one of the days highlighted. Here's an example of the nozzle section of his site.

Interesting. I clearly gave an incorrect URL at the end of my last message. However, Jack's website is available if you follow the directions for the Wayback Machine I posted before the bad URL. (I'm looking at Jack's nozzle page in another window right now.) Sorry for the confusion.

Thanks for the update! Never used the Wayback Machine before but clearly useful and as you stated, Jack’s info is still there….

When I click on either of those 2 webpage addresses,all I get is this.
And when I click on any of the 3 individual links,it's dead too.

I should have made it more clear, I guess. That first URL is not an active link. It is what you type in the search field when you are in the Wayback Machine.

OK. Glad to see you and Rocadog got to Jack's site. It's still full of useful information.

Well, you learn something new every day they say. I had no idea Jacks site was still available anywhere. I’ve caught myself trying to go to that site several times just for nozzle info or something and always ran in to the dead end. I’ll bookmark the linked page now. Thanks Jim.

I'm glad I asked the question.
This is the beauty of a community. Now we can still access all the great info Jack left with us.
