Does anyone know what type of pin is used to connect the squeeze handle on a nozzle to the nozzle? I have an original nozzle for a fry 117.

Original nozzle for a Fry 117(and 17) was a dry hose "banana" Morrison Bros. 126B. Dave

So I guess the nozzle I am referring to is not original but here is a picture. I need to know what to use to secure the handle to the nozzle. If anyone knows anything about this nozzle I would love to learn about it. Thanks. 😎

Some original Fry ads show a "Gas-O-Gun" type nozzle.

You are the man Jack. Someone said once that nozzles and hoses were the most frequently exchanged(changed)items on a pump. I do believe that the Williams Gas O Gun was a later(20's) "wet hose" arrangement and is correct as you state. Whatever you like. If the pump does not have a gate valve you should have a "wet hose" type nozzle. If it has a gate valve you can use either, but a "dry hose" or banana is more correct. Dave

Thanks for the info on the nozzle, but how about what holds the trigger to the nozzle. I.e. Pin or nut and bolt?

Most just have a metal rivet holding the lever on.Put a brass bolt through it, cut it off 3/32" longer and peen it back. Dave

Thanks, for the info Dave. I am new at this and appreciate any pointers. This stuff is more addicting than drugs. Thanks again. If you know any one with a fry 117 cylinder I am looking. I have two blue 12 X 23 1/2 cylinders I would like to trade. Also have a wide body glass globe.

No one is letting go of those 13 5/8" X 22" cylinders. I honestly don't know why. The reproductions are $1000.00. Go figure? Keep looking and you will find one. Good luck and don't go crazy over this stuff...its only stuff.

There will be a fry cylinder turn up somewhere. I recently sold one and I saw another one for sale--don't remember where. They are around but expensive. A really nice clear will run in that $1000 to $1200 range and a really nice blue one can be $1200 to $1400!
