I bought this G&B TC1 Canadian visible yesterday. This is all I got, missing the cylinder and all the gallon markers and top pieces.

First one, I've owned. Is all the nozzle holder hardware original and correct? The lock hasp appears to be an add on. The lower cast piece appears to have been re-positioned.

Did it have the same style top and markers as an American G&B visible?

Any picís or info would be appreciated.

Cool pump Dave . You know the the del and return pipes look identical to the ones in my GB 179 , I could measure them this week and we could compare. I have no idea on the markers and top question though.


I like SINCLAIR and old American made stuff ... No china items.

Dave, my cylinders are etched. Now this is on the double so it may be different. Let me know if you need some pictures.

Any pictures would be great. Measurements of the cylinder will be great. The person, I bought this from had an etched cylinder. That he wanted to keep as he thought it was for another pump...like a Canadian Clear Vision. I may have to go back and buy the cylinder. What size are your cylinders? Thanks in advance, Craig.

Not wanting to lose out on the cylinder, I went and bought it. Always, seems like you have to pay more for items when you go back specifically looking for an item. Although, I'm glad the seller parted with it.

I'm pretty confident now that, I have it. That, it belongs to this pump. It's in excellent condition and measure 12 1/2" OD and is 30" tall.

Someone has gotta have some pic's of one of these pumps??? Would like to figure out what the top like on these.

Seeing that, no one has any pic's of one of these pumps. I thought, I would post these photo's to assist anyone in the future seeking some info on one of these pumps. Found these on the net.

Looks like the top, is a lot different than the American G&B pumps. I see strong similarities between this and a Clearvision pump. Such as; cast base, an etched cylinder, and the design and style of the bonnet, use of a center pipe to secure cylinder and bonnet, straight skins. All this seems to suggest to me, that some sort of joint venture or out sourcing of parts between Clearvision and G&B may have been in place???

Any further input or photo's would be great. I am also looking for the missing pieces any help in that regard, would also be appreciated.

i can email you some pic's of original unrestored G&B pumps dave in a month or so. I think G&B cylinders are typically 28 inch tall but i will check.

Your statement "I would post these photo's to assist anyone in the future seeking some info on one of these pumps" is to be commended. It is this kind of attitude that helps all those members interested in doing an accurate restoration and helps build a community of givers and not just takers.

Kim, I would very much appreciate any pic's you could provide and thank you in advance.

Thank-you Tim. I totally agree with you. Like many other members, I am grateful for all the time and effort you put into the the gallon marker and cylinder identification threads.
