Dave, if you want to put a bit more load on the engine, throttle the water a bit more. The pump was made to pump at fairly high pressure.

Thanks Craig, I appreciate the nice comment.

Maury I may give that a try, but increasing the pressure at the pump would increase the load on all the related components; so in the long run I'm not sure that it is worth it.

Dave, one other question. I know you are painting the engine, but I'm wondering how you kept the rust off of it all this time?

The high desert of southwestern Idaho where the humidity is rarely over 25%.  :lolb:
The heated and air conditioned shop also helps.

Chuck, Kerrin, and Andy, thanks guys I appreciate the nice comments.

Eric, let me say that there is a new IC engine project in the works, no, I haven't started on it, and yes it will most definitely be a multi year build. I'm looking forward to getting going on it, but there is much to do first; including slopping some paint on the Pacific and pump.  :lolb:

Stay tuned,
Dave
