Rare Bowser 305 . Has anyone seen one before? Appears to possibly be some kind of transition between the 300 and the 310.

It’s been so long since I had a Bowser 300 I may be remembering wrong but the only thing I see different is the nozzle hanger? Looks similar to the Bowser 555 with the Bowser computer as well as the 310 of course. Cool pump.

It would be really cool if it were a factory model. Does the tag show it is a 305? My first impression is that it it a 300 head on a Varley Sentry body. Please tell me more about it. Fascinating.

That nozzle hanger is unique it seems to me...Varley/Xacto are different.

Petro Pumps and Greg are both correct on this!! This is a pump I dreamed up of building from misc parts and thought I would have a little fun with it on here. This pump really looks factory made in person. The casting under the pumpkin head fits the Xacto / Varley bottom end sheet metal perfectly! Like Greg said this would have been really cool if Bowser has built one like it. When you stand in front of it the dial seems to be at the correct height unlike the regular short 300. Anyway I am officially claiming it to be a 305 fantasy pump!

Happy pumping,
Rob
