My first restoration was a Fry 117 Mae West. Some of you may recall that it was a project that involved raising the ceiling of my garage. After relocating to Nova Scotia from BC ( career move ) I finally got around to completing my American 2478V. I'm going to submit early progress of the project then re-submit with 4 pics of the final product. I hope you enjoy them.

This pump was purchased from Florida and as it was stripped down all the part numbers matched but the internal piping other than the electrical conduit and 12/10 pump were missing. For this project I purchased petroleum grade shed-40 brass pipe and then went about collecting period pieces to complete. Just before I go a debt of thanks to Oslo Steve who supplied the one piece globe. So guys, would anyone be able to give me an approx value on this piece? Just curious. Many thanks, Nigel.
