Well I will weigh in on this again. We all know it's been covered over and over here, but I agree with Rick (Cold Pizza). If the guts are in the pump, I just leave them. And it's not hard at all to clean all the gas out. This is what I did with one of my latest restorations. I think it looks very cool with the guts....

Moving a 40's-50's pump around with the guts in them is just real fun and makes a great smell in the house. Restoring the pump for in the house, most would remove pump. Visible or 30's pumps yes probably keep the guts in for sure or at least put them on the shelf with pictures if clockface. Way too heavy though with a double and the guts in them.
