Evening all, I recently inherited this pump from one of my childhood icons growing up. He didn’t tell me much about it before he passed, and I didn’t know he was including it in my inheritance. I am pretty excited to learn more about it, but I’m pretty green! Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Commercial pump. Used in trucking, usually. The top unit printed a ticket as proof of delivery, thereby tracking fuel used by each vehicle. Regards, Paul www.severngaspumps.com

Agree,many commercial accounts used that type for fueling their own vehicles.

Love to learn all of this. I guess the biggest question is to restore or leave as is??

It’s also a cut down Martin & Schwartz model 70 gas pump & top, with the Wayne / Veeder Root computer on top.

Attached is a picture of a couple I used to own.
