[quote=MATT ALVAREZ]I was looking at a Tokheim manual yesterday trying to find model info. I did not but found this info. Here is the nozzle used and here is a schematic on the hose safety shut off. These were required in some states. Also here are some lighting schematics. The lighting on the right is the vapor proof that was required on the west coast. Some people call this lighting with the jars explosion proof.


Hey Matt, what was the date of the manual you are referencing? I always thought that the 39's used the 1093 nozzle and I looked through the manual I have that I think is from 1953. Mine shows the 1093 nozzle as the one used on those models. The Milwaukee nozzle in your book was the one I thought was used on the 36 models, maybe others too, but the older ones nonetheless. Just curious as to the dates they might have used different nozzles on the 39's. Maybe Jack can shed some light on the subject, I know he has always said that the nozzles weren't necessarily an item that the pump companies furnished with a new pump but since these Tokheim manuals show these as ones used they must have at least recommended them.....GB

Here's my one and only restored Tok 39a.. restored about 4-5yrs ago... had the original adglasses so the pump ended up in that livery.

Still got two more in suit resto condition awaiting for resto... maybe done in the next decade :-)

cheers

I was looking through old pictures. I found this 39 that I bought in 2007. I started restoreing it and a friend wanted it so I sold it to him. He finished it along with the other two he already had.

For starters, Thank you Braden for volunteering to resurrect the POTM thread. I'm a pump guy and will be forever grateful for your selfless actions. I appreciate the time and effort you will be putting into this.

Very informative posts and pic's by everyone elseas well.

I like Tokheim 39's. In my opinion, a perfect first pump. They are plentiful and easy to come by and an easy pump to disassemble and reassemble. Original and reproduction parts are readily available.

When, I first started collecting. I bought, these 19 Tokheim short 39's in one deal from one gentleman. I've restored and sold most of them since. Here's some photo's will dig up some more later today.

Those two pic's of my truck and trailer bring back some neat memories. I started collecting in late 2004, early 2005. That was a pretty good score considering I had only been collecting for less than a year.

Here's a few of those pumps restored will try to dig up some more photo's hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

Wish, I worked this fast now. Got them in Oct, and by mid Dec had one all restored. I never did restore the Mobil, I left it alone. I think, it's cool how the red paint has faded to pink.

It's not often you see a real Polar Bear rug or a minty Ford V8 sign. My daughter is now 5 years old...she's 2 in that picture. She's still my best helper, ever!!!

My only tokheim 39. Someone burnt the 1947 on the door with a torch...... that was long before I got it.
