I can get you those measurements tomorrow unless someone else beats me to it? The smaller diameter 850 has the same upper skins, clock, etc. The mid section on the smaller one is stamped steel instead of cast iron like the larger one. The smaller diameter 850 is also shorter, at least the two I have owned were. And they were original.
Good day, trying to attach a photo. The procedure above talks about "scrolling down past Post Icon. Where is this? I find lots of this confusing. Is a post a message? When I click on New Message (under where I log in) none of this appears, my message (post?) goes out somewhere, without asking me about this Post icon. Am I doing this right? Thanks, Denis
I am thinking about reprinting the Gas Pump Blue Book that lists the serial numbers and production numbers by year for many of the gas pump manufacturers. This book has 106 pages and features all 3 editions which cover the years of 1927 through 1952. It was originally compiled by the Gasoline Pump Manufacturers Association. I know many of the OG guys have this book, so for those new to our hobby and those that have missed the opportunity to purchase this book in previous years, I thought I would reach out and see what level of interest there is before getting these printed. I am looking at doing a minimum of 12 books and would charge $25.00 for each book which would include shipping anywhere in the continental US.
Hi Jack, i have been trying to reach you a few times on “firstname.lastname@example.org” but i am getting no response. Is this email valid? In my last email, there is info concerning an error possibly in your pump book. Would be good to correct it in your new one. Denis
The nozzle is period correct, but looks like a repro. My 177 had oval cast iron light fixtures with oval porcelain sockets. Inside the long door was one gallon stop at the 10 gallon position; useless. There would have been a shut off valve with a weighted handle with G&B cast into the weighted end. My 177 had interior gallon markers. Joe
Even though I will be announcing the book here and sending you to a webpage where all the info about ordering will be, I have made it a policy not to use the emails that are here on OG. I have always asked that you just send me a email that states "Add my email address to the list."
