Good evening everyone!

I apologize I am 2 days late on the pump of the month for August 2018. I just got home from Iowa, what a fantastic trip. The pump of the month for August 2018 is the Bennett 76 series of pumps. These are fantastic art deco looking pumps from the 30's. They have a very unique sight glass and spinner assembly The pump could have came with either a visi gauge or an inside sight glass assembly. Here is the pump models included in this month.

-Bennett 76: 1935-1939. Pump with a two or four ad glass top. Also came with factory ad glass covers for the top.
-Bennett 77 & 77A: 1935-1939. Clockface version of the 76. Also was a hand crank option for no electricity areas.

The above information is from Jack's fantastic book. Please share the pumps you have everyone! Thank you and lets have a great August!

I bought my 76 all in pieces and in the middle of the resto. I am planning on branding it White Eagle. I assume you guys wouldn't be interested in pics of the process for this thread.


Great pumps guys keep 'em coming.

Here are some clean parts. I try to powder coat everything that I can. I am limited to the size of my oven. If I don't like something, I fix it or make a new one.

I noticed Randy`s pump has the one piece cast reset crank handle. The Bennett 76 used two different reset handles. the other style is the same one used on Bennett 371s. The 77 (clock face) use a shorter ratcheting reset handle. These are hard to find because they are delicate and brake easy.
