MANLY ANTIQUE CENTRE

SET OF 3 VINTAGE GILBARCO
OIL DRUM PUMP TAPS



Set of three GILBARCO chrome oil drum taps used in car garages all over
Australia in days gone by - from around the 1950s or 60s.

This set was used in the smash repairs that was here before us
(Manly Antique Centre) and were actually still attached to the wall
we moved in.

They were screwed into the wall as stated and tubing ran from
this outlet on the outside of the building into 44 gallon drums.
The lever handles work like a pump drawing oil up from the huge
oil drums outside and through these taps down through narrower
plastic tubing from the underside smaller outlets below (see photos)
and then used or dispensed as needed.

The amount of oomph it takes to 'pump' one of these lever handles
really allows you feel the quality of this vintage garage equipment.
The quality chrome finish is another indicator that these taps were made to
last a life time of use and abuse and probably still have many years left in them.

Great talking points for a Boys Cave or for a retro fit garage.
