Would anyone know what depth of a base(concrete) would be needed for a bennett 1066 gas pump?

That's a big question until we know what you intend to do with it?
Lets assume that you wish to display it outside and want it secure from the elements and thieves!
In that case, I would square off an area about twice as big as the base of the pump, and drive a few pieces of rebar into the ground, and then frame it up for about 3 inches of concrete.

Will be temporary for now but dont want it stolen .You assumed correctly that it is going outside. Wasnt sure if the frost would heave anything.

Even in the North, 4 inches of concrete should work. Just be sure to dig the form at least 8 inches deep and fill to the 4 inch level with washed stone. Place a vapor barrier on top of the stone then install the concrete. The stones should keep the moisture from below the concrete thereby eliminating frost heave? If you are on clay, you might need to go deeper and add more washed stone? Paul www.severngaspumps.com
