Took all winter to do it, but finally got the Wayne #275 done. It's one of the earliest with no clock face. Mostly all original except for hose and decals. Now, how do I move it?

I saw this as it was in pieces and being painted and it had the "wow" factor before it was done. Seeing it here all complete is a "double wow"!! Great job Sam!

ROTFLMAO!
NO, Lay pump down & remove the Base, then the sheet metal.

I went the way of DB's input. Laid it down & started with the bottom base. BUT, be careful to take pics & the steps in your dis-assembly.These are a real pain when going back together. When the bottom parts are restored (big round tubes sticking up through center casting, & you're re-assembling, then the skirt goes on from the top down, followed by gear mechanism rack, top with pulley/chains, etc. Hope this helps.Fun when they're done!
