Attempting to get a Eco 97 functioning. Removed the housing covers and hooked up air. There is air leaking out of a small rectangular port just below the main valve. And there is no difference when closing the hook. New to this tireflator operation. I've checked Jack Sim's site and know what parts are available and he offers a rebuild service. Seems like my problem goes beyond diaphram and strainer gasket replacement. I know there is a lot of expertise with these units on this forum. What direction should I go??? Thanks in advance. Bob
As shown. Amazing patina and all original except 1 face plate . Also see the video. Pick up in Tehachapi, Calif. or make shipping arrangements and I will help load. Pump with original globe $ 3950 pump only without globe $ 2950 . Thanks !
Someone (from Canada?) bought a computer from Tom Buckles and had it sent to me to be rebuilt maybe August or September, I have lost the info in the move and Tom does not recall the customer's name. Tom seems to think it was for a Bennett 541. We both seem to remember it was for a customer in Canada. I am ready to finish up on the computer. I just need to put the wheels in and find the owner. Thanks Joe
Recently purchased an oval shaped Esso thermometer. It is not working. It is the spring mechanical type and as expected is rusty. One great suggestion is to buy another thermometer to cannabilize. Appreciate any suggestions.
Hi, new to this so please be patient with me.. looking for the rectangular Sinclair washing and lubrication signs, also a smaller rectangular Sinclair sign also. Please contact me if you know of any for sale out there. Thanks Andy 920-860-1135. Text or call is good.
Both are from Italy, to my knowledge. One liter cans are five percent taller than US quarts, or a lid or two taller. Both are empty, very nice condition. Pennzip is topless while the Vixol is drained from two small holes in the bottom. Take them both for $125 plus shipping. If you only want one, Vixol is $65 and the Pennoil is $90. Thanks!
I just added a Boyle Dayton curb pump Model 75 to my collection. It looks pretty boring with no signage or price box. Does anyone have some pictures that show some in service with some sort of adverting on them?
Do you know the story of the attractive young woman framed by a Kelly-Springfield tire that smiles at us from the billboards and magazine ads?
What about enjoying the Kelly old ads art by great illustrators such as Louis Mayer, Justin Gruelle, Laurence Fellows, the Master Peter Helck and the Streamliner train designer Otto Kulher, among others?
It is a pleasure to share with you the results of my ten-year research as a scholar especialized in the pioneer tire companies graphic design and advertising strategies (1880s-1930s). I’m a professor of Graphic Design subject at the University of Barcelona, Catalonia, a pasionated academic researcher and writer… and a collector too.
There you will find an entire article devoted to Kelly written by me, accompanied by dozens of incredible images never published before. Surely it's worth looking at!
I hope you enjoy the fruits of my academic research, gathered in my Thesis dissertation dealing with the American pioneer tire industry: The Forgotten Years of Bibendum. Michelin’s American Period in Milltown: Design, Illustration and Advertising by Pioneer Tire Companies (1900-1930).
There you will find the story of other important tire companies such as Fisk, Gillette, Cupples, Lee, Republic, Hood, India and Miller, among others.
I'm looking forward to reading your comments and apportations to the topic!
Greetings from Barcelona, Catalonia.

My gosh, this is the third one of these that I've now found among my goodies that have been stored away for years. The first two have been sold....so, here goes with number three!
This is an NOS EVERSHARP brand, AC Fuel Pumps Pen & Pencil set. It is in true never-used condition. The pen and pencil are done in blue, with gold accents. The AC Fuel Pumps logo imprint is in silver.
The mechanical pencil works fine, but I'm sure the retractable pen refill is dried-up. The original presentation box is included. There are a few ink scribble marks on the inside of the box. It looks like someone was checking the pen out years ago! All three of these NOS AC pen & pencil sets have had some of these little "test" marks.
The price is $40, INCLUCING shipping in the U.S.. Thanks for looking. John
This is a Kendall Oil 1939 New York World’s Fair Good Luck Key Chain. It is in very good condition. This nearly 80-year-old Kendall key chain has the nice early Kendall oil can pictured on one side, along with the words “Guaranteed 100 Percent Bradford Pennsylvania Oil”.
The other side has the iconic 1939 New York World’s Fair logo on it. This Kendall key chain looks very good in person. The greatly enlarged digital photo magnifies the very small imperfections around the perimeter of the medallion. SORRY, but the first photo attachment doesn't want to display, but if you click on it, it'll come up.
The price is just $15, INCLUDING SHIPPING in the U.S. A padded envelope will be used. Thanks for looking. John
