This is the end of my first week collecting petroliana. There may not be a lot of monetary value here, but tons of fun and more to come. Just need to put up some shelves in the garage and hang the signs. Here’s a shot of how the first week went down.
Bought this double bubble Phillips 66 clock in non- working condition a while back. Found a new clock motor and a circline replacement LED lamp on Amazon to get it going. And added a toggle switch to turn off the light and keep the clock running. Just got it assembled today. Best part is that the wife loves the look of it.
Thanks Old Racer. I may go for the hips and try to find a used shoulder. I forgot to ask, but what about the outer face plates? Do they fit good or would I be better off finding originals for that too?
I make a base out of 3/4" plywood tracing the base dimensions, and then attach it with carriage bolts. I can then drill a hole into the edge of the plywood and run the cord thru it. After you plug it in you can run the extra cord back into the pump. Richard
Jeff, Go to Home Depot/Lowes and find a wire bushing for metal. Probably in hardware specialty items area? It looks like a small black rubber donut, with shoulders on each side that holds it in place after the necessary hole is drilled through the panel. Comes in various sizes to accommodate wire size. Determine which size fits your wire. Pick the right size. Drill the hole, install the rubber bushing then the wire. We always drill a hole through the side of the [base] before painting, for the wire. With the rolling system you installed, I see no other way? Paul www.severngaspumps.com
