Now that's funny.

I'm old but not THAT old.

Ok ZMiller I have a couple for you

Remember the final filter on Amoco Premium (white gas), Tokheim m/n 151 pumps where the display was on a swivel so that the customer could adjust it to see it from where they were standing, changing a product relay in a Gilbarco A-3 smokestack, having to repair a Keytrol system where someone had yanked the key out before turning it back, AO Smith dispensers. And yes, I worked on Mobil rounds, both version (Gilbarco and Wayne). The techs today will never now what it's like to carry several different size belts for suction pumps. :D :lol:

Chevron Hallmark dispensers. You had to open them up to see if they had Wayne, Gilbarco, Bennett, or AO Smith meters in them.


I'm afraid the good old days are gone. Anyone remember 390QV's? Or the first 360 MPD which was just 2 or 3 360's bolted together??

Any one remember why you cut "R2" off when you replaced a backup battery on a 390 CPU?

Remember them well, as putting in the Wayne DCR modules below the heads

What actually supprises me today is that TMS's are still being installed. Go's to show you that longevity is often defined as being basic and simple.

If you didn't cut "r2" the new battery you installed would over charge and possibly blow up.

How about V-R Mbss or 7800 series consoles, or Unidynamics electronic heads for converting VR-101 or higher mechanical clocks..
Are you here to raise the prices?

I thought it would work even though the sign said "OUT OF ORDER"

It's come to me over the years that orange cones are idiot attractants.. :P
