Been working on this quite a while now, finally have parts in my hands from a new supplier. Can't be happier with how these turned out!

These letters are CNC cut out of steel and powder coated. They mount just below the light-up top, on the bracket that the top sits in. It utilizes an existing hole in the bracket (I dont sell this bracket, its already on your pump). The letters do not attach directly to the top, they just float next to it.

I have some for sale on ebay with tops, it's under listing number 302549505083.

For folks that have already bought tops or have tops, I'll sell these separately for $45 a set (two) plus $5 shipping. I have limited stock right now, but can do a follow-up order with the supplier if necessary, take a few months at minimum. Can possibly do custom orders, lettering and color, for additional charges. Contact me to discuss. You can always paint these to any color you want too.

To refresh everyones memory on this, letters on the side of Erie tops are something that Erie advertised. I don't know exactly how they originally did this, but I'm probably pretty close.

Anybody that does buy, would appreciate it if you'd post a pic of your pump on here.

What you see in the following pictures is the configurations I have right now... color/wording

About 15 years ago I wrote an article for "CTO" about these tops and the letters. I have original factory literature about the pumps and included in the brochure is mention that these letters were available.

Guys,

If you placed a paid order already, we sent out all those orders today (Monday).

Just ran out of "MOTOR", still have some of all the others in stock. Can always place another order with the supplier but takes a while!

Paul
