Restoring a fry 117. Does anyone know the dimensions and angle degree of the conduit and for the lamp arms. I believe the pipe is 3/4.

A larger and a picture showing the pump upright might provide better answers.

Possibly this section of my website might help you in answering your question: http://petrolianacollectibles.com/guarantee%20pumps.htm

Pipe is 1/2 inch black iron and the angle is just shy of 22 degrees. I have made several with good results but have an original for a pattern. They are available from a couple of part suppliers if you wanted to buy them ready made.

Welcome to Oldgas. I seen your post in new member forum. Nice pump. I would think it would be tough to get them right without a pattern. They are not that expensive from suppliers. If you have a burning desire to say I made these good luck.

I have seen them also at 90 degrees like the parts lists drawings(identical to the conduit arms). Dave
