HI glad to find this site. Have a Tokheim 39 that I am trying to make "run".

Saw a video where a drill motor was used to turn the computer, and a pond pump was used to flow RV anti-freeze through the globes.

That pump was a Bennet, but I like the idea.

I have heard that Grainger has a motor that turns at an rpm similar to the original pump and has the torque to drive the computer.

Has anyone done this on a Tokheim 39?

Guidance would be appreciated!

Thanks
Dan
