I have placed several want posts on Oldgas in the past and very rarely do I get a positive response. In fact I think I have at least three opened what ads on this site now, some of which are two and three years old.

I'm guessing that a lot of members are reluctant to let go of parts for fear that they will someday find a pump that needs what they have. I can certainly understand this philosophy,

Well that wasn't the case this time! Tom Buckles, who I've dealt with a number of times in the past, was kind enough to let me know that he could provide the parts I was looking for. A big thank you to Tom and Oldgas for helping me complete another pump for my collection!!!
