Hello, I have a chance to buy this Gilbarco double pump from a real nice man. He is offering it to me for $525.00. I don't have to worry about the shipping. Is this a fair price to pay? It appears rust and dent free. I am not familiar with 1950's double gas pump values. I DO like how it has the option on the top to be able to mount a globe. I hope someone has an idea if this is a fair price for both parties. Thanks, Andrew
Here are some pictures. You will have to pull the packing out of the packing box on the pump. Similar to the packing box seen in the . If you have packing pullers it makes it so much easer, if not you will have to just dig it out. Once you have that out the front cover on the pump should be easer to pull off. the pictures should show you what you will end up with. Mitch
I have the early Alemite model 2710 Service Merchandiser bench with lighted windows (1945-1947). Photo below is an example of the unit. Just missing the centre cap/badge that is mounted in the middle at the top of the unit, hoping someone out there including yourself may have some spare parts from another bench.
Thanks Jack for any info or leads you may have. Aaron.
Please don't take this as criticism, but you need to supply a little more information if you wish to get any help. You should supply a picture of what you have, supply the model number, anything that will help us identify firstly what you have. The only thing I have for sale is a Alemite over head air reel, but I do have over 1000 pieces of Alimate literature, that I might be able to identify your bench. I sell literature, this is my contribution to this hobby, so if you can send me anything that might help me identify your unit I will let you know what I have. email@example.com

Loyd - hope none were feeding on you! We get deer ticks bad here. If they have been feeding, I usually get a prophylactic antibiotic dose from the doctor that we take within 48 hours of finding the tick feeding. Bob and I have only had to use it 3 times in the last 15 years. It's not a guarantee, but reduces the chance of infection. Not something the doctors will write up on a regular basis. I get it as I am allergic to at least 3 categories of antibiotics, so would have trouble with the mega-doses that are needed once someone has enough infection in them to register on a blood test.
Course the other ticks carry other stuff--had a friend get one of the other tick diseases. Nasty!
Since I picked off 13 of them feeding on me about 10 years ago (I was clearing brush and knew better!), I always go out with tick spray on my 'tick' shoes and socks this time of year. Spray the bottom of my jeans if I'm out in the woods.
Wow - meant to say today was a beautiful sunny warm day and I hope everyone has a lovely weekend!
I purchased this pump in February after following up on a online ad. It was only a half hour drive from my house to a farm in Schuler, Alberta. The farmers father had bought the pump 30 years ago and had it stored in his shop. Unfortunately he had passed away before he got around to restoring it. I made a deal and promised to share pictures of the completed pump when it was finished. Here are a few pictures of the initial tear down and the glass bead abrasive blast on the frame and panels. One door was very dented and warped and would end up requiring more time than I would have like with a hammer and dolly.
Location is concurrent with an unrestored one that I have and also the placement location that I used when I restored one, several years back. They were the original panels and I would have used the original holes.
