For your first pump I would buy something that is complete and in good shape. That would make things better and easier for your first one.

I'm with Matt. Searching for hard to find parts, figuring out what's missing and wrestling with badly damaged pieces can take the fun out of a first restoration. Find a complete pump you like.

Jack,

Speaking of Bowser pumps, I have a 241 that is complete except for the top light tower pole and light shade and fixture, the nozzle and hose, and the pole that the hose attaches to.

Would you happen to have any of these parts? If so, please email me at the email below.

Thanks!
Jason
