Re: gilbarco906-7g restoration snakeknuckles 1 hour ago
Update: The white wire on the romex goes thru the winding and the black wire goes to the switch. One of the 2 black wires goes from the switch with 120v to the light bulb, the other comes back into connect the other side of the motor winding. I now have the motor spinning but doesn't seem to have high startup torque... don't know if the start windings are working. I might try switching to 240v

Re: My restored pumps BrianH 1 hour ago
Nice pumps! Just curious, where did you get the short-side ad glass for your Tokheim 36B done in Indian Gas? I couldn't find anyone who had that size of ad glass.

Ames Harris Neville “Desert Radiator" Bag Ghostflowers 9 hours ago
Ames Harris Neville (Standard Oil) “Desert Radiator Bag”

Very old example, Ames Harris Neville (Standard Oil) “Desert Radiator Bag”

The Desert Brand canvas water bag was designed so that a small amount slowly seeped through the canvas and evaporated as you drove, cooling the remaining water inside the bag. In order to function properly it was hung on the outside of your car. These were seen on almost every auto that traveled the highways of the arid southwest and served double duty: quench your thirst and to refill your radiator.

The W. A. Plummer Manufacturing Company of San Francisco, an established manufacturer of tents and canvas products, patented the Desert Water Bag on February 9, 1916. The fabric of the bag — half flax, half jute — was woven in Glasgow, Scotland. The bag was made in a variety of sizes and the top of the bag could be opened for cleaning.
In 1923 Ames Harris Neville Co. purchased W. A. Plummer and started producing the iconic water bag under its own name at the Portland, Oregon factory. Ames Harris Neville made water bags exclusively for Standard Oil.

White Rock History:

White Rock Beverages is an American beverage company located in Whitestone, Queens, New York City. The company was established in 1871. Potawatomi Indians and settlers believed that the nearby White Rock natural spring had special medicinal powers, so White Rock Beverages started out as destination for vacationers and health seekers. By 1876, the company was bottling and distributing the natural spring water throughout the country "It was a real upper-class type of an item, Used at the coronation of Queen Victoria, Charles Lindbergh christened his plane ... with it, and Gloria Vanderbilt was baptized with it."

The company has used the image of Psyche as its logo for over 120 years. The company purchased the rights to a painting titled "Psyche at Nature's Mirror", at the Chicago World's Fair in 1893. The goddess Psyche has appeared on millions of bottles and cans of White Rock and on every one, she is topless, gazing at her own reflection in a crystal-clear pool of water. Psyche is one of America’s most recognizable trademarks and is the longest running beverage logo in American history.

Re: Staying Busy Done4 11 hours ago
Thanks for posting. The wife and I have been in the house for two weeks now and so far so good. Doc recommended it.

Tomorrow I’m going to the pole barn a short walk from the house. Will arrange some signs and start work on a G&B 5 gallon visible.

I too will post pics.

I'm looking for the nozzle rest and support structure for the referenced pump. I have the clockface mechanism and its basic cast iron frame, but need everything else. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Marshall

I am looking for two light bulb covers and locking rings like the ones pictured. I am fairly sure these fit a lot of different pumps and believe my pump was once owned by Dick Bennett which makes it special to me.
