I've been collecting gas pumps for between 25-30 years. Back then the EPA shut down the farmers from pumping gas because their under ground tanks might be leaking. I bought a lot of pumps for scrap prices back then. I'm cheap and don't pay a lot for a gas pump. Collector friends will give me good deals on pumps they want to get rid of because they know I'm a collector and very seldom do I sell anything. There are two reasons I don't use hoses and nozzles on my pumps. The main reason is space. I can get more pumps in the room if I don't have hoses on them. The other reason is cost. I have 126 pumps in the room. I would rather buy another pump than spend the money on the hoses and nozzles. I restore the pumps in the winter months when I have the extra time. Richard
