The pump may be installed any reasonable distance from the storage tank. Installations are made in accordance with any of the four designs shown, or to meet any other requirement desired.
This pump is operated by a forward and backward movement of the lever, pumping gasoline into the bowl up to the overflow. When pumping is stopped the level of gasoline returns to the zero mark ready to be drawn out.
