I have an Unrestored double Lubester with sight glasses, It is Orange in color and where the plates were, it quite clearly visible that the plates were 14 inches diameter, Due to the Orange color, i was guessing GULF, but i have never seen any plates 14 inches diameter, Is this something unuaual ?

Thanks, larry

OK, Thanks for that, My Lubester looks very similar to yours, but with slightly different sight glass tops, I had just had to go out and have a look at it, It's 2 o'clock in the morning here, I guess a decal would explain it, I dont know if it's my imagination but can i read OIL at about 4 o'clock on yours ?

Thanks Again and Regards, larry

Here is a porcelian Gulf lubster sign in my collection that measures just under 15". I took it off my double lubster that is a little different from Daves. The one I have is marked GULF Refining in the cast iron

I just uncovered some 14-15" vinyl decals I had made years ago, 1 is Auto Oils the other is Supreme, I won't be restoring another one so I'll sell these if anyone is interested.
I'll get pics tomorrow.
