I'll show you mine if you show me yours!
Recently purchased an Erie 748 (yes I paid too much for it but I'm a rookie). Now that I look at it, it seems odd the handles are one on pump nozzle side, one on the reset crank side. Shouldn't they both be on the nozzle side? Can't I just re-drill holes on the nozzle side, relocate, then patch "incorrect" holes? Not sure how or why this happened. If anyone has complete photos it would be good inspiration! While we're at it, what brand, model nozzle should I be searching for!
Many thanks all!
dave

The computer reset handle looks right on the nozzle side. If you referring to the opening mid way done below the nozzle receiver, I believe it's for a door lock.

Just about all electric pumps were set up this way. Reset is always on the side away from the nozzle. I've done a few of these Eries and your pump is correct as stated above. Paul www.severngaspumps.com

I'm thinking that the "handles" are the hose guards attached to the doors and that they should both be on the hose side of the pump????? In the picture on the left there is a hose guard on the reset side as stated. Doesn't seem to serve a purpose located on that side.

Dave, There is an Erie 748 registered tomorrow for the Richmond Auction, Lot #109. There are multiple pictures showing all sides. The last pictures shows the hose side. It's clear that the "handles"/hose guards are on the same side. It appears you are correct that your pump has been altered. That is, of course, your reference to handles is about the hose guards. Go to their website and open "view lots" to see the pics. Bob

Looks like someone swapped a door on this pump in it's past. My pump has both hose guards on the key side. Brady

Ahhhh. Yes. If he you are calling the hose guards “handles” , then you are correct. The one is on the wrong side. (I think some of us were thinking you meant the reset crank handle, since you said handle)

The door was probably swapped out at one point.

Apologize for misspeaking. I really meant the hose guards. Just watched the richmond auction for same pump. Picture is worth a thousand words! Many thanks to all!

from above the handle is on the wrong side, just leave it. Do not drill holes on the other side, quirks are good

can you post a picture of the inside of the lock mech. had to drill out the lock and the lock mech fell in. thanks

Here's a pic that might help. Note the small tab with a "notch" in it. when you turn the lock that notch fits onto the small round steel rod to keep it into place. NO idea what the dangling spring was for. When I first installed it was kinda bind up, but now it seems to work fine. good luck!
