Gas Pump Restoration
It’s been over a century since the invention of gas pumps. They come in a variety of different shapes, sizes and designs. The major driving force behind gas pumps was the invention of automobiles since they provided a handy method for dispensing fuel in automobiles to keep the engines running.
Initially they were operated by hand pumps but as technology progressed they became electrified. Even with all the innovations in gas pumps their primary purpose to date remains the same and that is to dispense fuel.
Among collectors gas pump restoration is very popular. The process however, requires preciseness and time but it is not that difficult to do. Although it not a lengthy process it requires about 80 hours of work time from the start of the process to the end. Many have turned this hobby into a profession some do it themselves others turn to a professional for help since the restoration of gas pumps provides a hefty profit.
