Kris: Know plenty of collectors my way and up north with some neat meters myself included but not one is getting off them! they all feel that's one thing there never find again! just to hard to find! find fifty pumps before one pre 50s air meter, but good luck! Dan in Kissimmee

Always remember, while the pumps on the island were changed every few years, the trusted air meter hung on the wall for 30 years.

There has always been fifty pumps for every air meter.

I do have a rare ECO 97 for sale. It is the only one ever found that has had a coin operated box added to it. It was done by a company in Colorado. I will post a picture soon.

Here is a picture of the coin operated 97. In my 30 years of restoring ECOs, this is the only one ever found.

Dan you are right, somebody would sell the Roman before they would part with a rare early air meterπŸ˜€ Jack that is pretty cool, still waiting for some pictures of some near early stuff that you might not needπŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ‘

Always buying early air stations and don't sell but have extra parts and give me a ring if you need something, always help fellow collectors. Dan 407-433-2164

Dan,

Offer the years I have bought and sold air meters and air meter parts, but since I am now 82, I only deal in the Model 90 ECO meters. If you have anything to sell, please send me list.
