Hopefully my pictures made it to this reply:) I used the rod that used to start the pump motor, by way of lifting the pump handle, to actuate a small switch in that gray 6 x 6 junction box. The switch starts the adjustable timer, which starts the gearmotor, which I have set for thirty seconds. After the time is up I have to reset the pump and then lift the pump handle again to start the sequence. Just a few small items to do to finish my pump before I install it in front of my garage. Hope you all enjoy the paint on my version of a Sinclair pump. Sorry...going to try to rotate the pics!!
Almost finished with my woodworking corner. Everything looks like it's not level but it's just the angle of the camera. The woodworking bench is store-bought but modified to add in an old-school vice. Note the antique tools above the pegboard.
The heater has been working just fine on days when it's in the teens outside.
I posted in the Want to Buy section many years ago and got no answers so I thought I'd try again. Back in the early 60's, my wife's father had a service station in Glendale, California. It was called Tiny's Flying A Service. If anyone has anything from that station, a sign, matchbook, map, photo, anything, we'd love to see it and perhaps buy it. After I post this, I'll update my email address.
Don't know if I can get the email address changed, so please use this one: wmbelef AT icloud DOT com.
