Here is one of the tags standard oil used on almost everything they owned. The rivetes are 1 & 5/8 apart

Chris i Want to thank you for your generous offer of the brass id tag . Received it in the mail today . Gave it a slight oh so slight buff and going to get it out on the pump as soon as I go thru my brass screws and find the correct size . So thanks again Bob

I really enjoy seeing one Old Gasser helping another completing a pump and preserving history. It isn't all about making a buck!

Just curious if you went with reman or original globe ? Looking for one or the other myself...If it is a reman.... does it look good lit up ? What is the durability of the paint on those ?

Nice pump I would like to find on like it

Quality reproduction lenses are made exactly like the originals - so they will last as long as originals.

Not the acrylic lenses, those are worthless (IMHO), but the reproduction glass lenses are a better choice for a pump restoration.

Nothing looks worse than a high end paint job with a washed out globe sitting on it. Again IMHO.

Later . . .

Like Jim said Complete restoration go with a after market reproduction glass lens and metal globe body painted to match your pump .If it’s going to be an Outside pump reproduction for sure . Don’t want hail ,or rock throwing kids or with a BB gun for Xmas taking it out .. If inside your house original would be nice but pricey .Mine is aftermarket and use them on all my outside pumps . Original globes kept safely inside for display .

Lit up ! Had to put a lower watt bulb in it (now) it was a little too bright and overshadowed the price window . These pictures were before I changed to a lower watt bulb .

Beautiful Bob!!
I don't know about those crown globes, but I put 40W equivalent LED in all my globes. Works out great. And no heat with the LED. And they last basically forever.

Thanks .Yes that is what I put in all my other pumps 25 watt glare reduced led . With the crown being bigger I started out with a larger Led but was too much and I was also out of the smaller wattage and i had to order a couple boxes of lower wattage .The pics are with the first bulbs & since switched out to lower . Just haven’t taken any new pictures. Have been slowly changing all my bulbs to led even outside security lights .
