Looking for a few original pieces to my 1937 Erie 129 pump. Not doing a complete restore, I just want to complete the pump with original parts if possible. The list is below and thanks for looking/helping.
Window glass for both sides Nozzle (hose also but will probably buy repop) Reset lever
So after two weeks of chompin at the bit, my friend called and we met to pick up this 866. Although it has been brush painted,it’s clean and straight! Have wanted one of these for a long time,and happy to add it to my collection! Might even sleep good tonight!
I know "rustorations" are the rage with many people. I am working on restoring a pump. I bought the pump for nostalgia reasons - I like to be reminded of things from my youth. The pumps I remember from my youth showed some wear, but they were not all rusty and forlorn looking. I think the decision should be made on if you want to use the pump in an environment that shows the decay over time or if you want to be reminded of the way things were back in the day.
I must be thick headed! I read all the threads and picked up only bits and pieces. Use a brush...primary color...use a brown...someone used satin polyurethane. I really need more information. It sounds like exactly what I need to do with my pump.
