8P5000 Stock Number, as listed for Dodge, GPW, MB, GPA
Always remember that Tyre pumps were not only issued to the MB and GPW jeeps, but a similar pump was also issued to the GPA, Dodge WC ¾ ton and the WC 1½ ton 6x6. not forgetting the Model 1937 cooking stove, or more properly called "Gasoline Field Range M-1937. SNL-85 Image below
You would think that the pumps issued are the same going on the numbers, but that's when things get tricky, as explained to me by Jim Gilmore.
The QMC or ORD part number may be the same but it does not mean the pumps were. QMC/ORD part numbers are for REPLACEMENT parts and not production items. That's what the MFG part numbers are for. Jim Gilmore

From Jim Gilmore as reported on the G503 Tools Board by Luca Grossi and added to by Chuck Lutz...
GPW's had no tire pump (which does not say WHEN they DID get it added at the
factory). He goes on to say as Luca has stated, that when they DID supply
them at the factory, that they had the air gun and chain on them.
Nabholtz says Sept '42 was the change from QMC to ORD. The addition of the air nozzle was Mar. '43.
The addition of the hole in the bracket under the rear seat for the nozzle is listed at Mar. '43.
These were not Factory fitted in most cases, there are exceptions. If you want to leave a found Grey one as Grey, or Gloss Green or for that matter O.D. do so. According to the MVPA Judging Standard as it's not a factory fitted item, it shouldn't matter and it should not be judged on a Factory Class restoration.
There were different screw caps fitted to the tube, some( the Hex Type) were painted, others (Knurled Type) were plated.
