Always remember, while the pumps on the island were changed every few years, the trusted air meter hung on the wall for 30 years.

There has always been fifty pumps for every air meter.

I do have a rare ECO 97 for sale. It is the only one ever found that has had a coin operated box added to it. It was done by a company in Colorado. I will post a picture soon.

Here is a picture of the coin operated 97. In my 30 years of restoring ECOs, this is the only one ever found.

Dan,

Offer the years I have bought and sold air meters and air meter parts, but since I am now 82, I only deal in the Model 90 ECO meters. If you have anything to sell, please send me list.
