When I joined the site back in 2008, I did not post for almost a year because I wanted to know who is who on the site.
It did not take me long to know several senior "Veteran members" & db was one of them. I was lost with all pump questions, especially, Tokheim 36 vs 36B vs. 36BDP. I sent a PM that I wanted to talk to him about these pumps. db called me right away & explained in detail the differences & made it clear that 36BDP with "real" clock are hard to find! I will never forget how organized db was when going over the history of Tokheim "computer" vs. "clock face".
I wish I had met db. I was hoping to meet db at last Escalon bash, but work would not allow me.
