Thanks, I had fun with this one too. In fact one of those rare finished it the same month I started it models. I was quite happy with the kit so expect there will be a few more completed in the future, just need to find the right inspiration.

Very little, all I know is they were small, low pressure 20-30 gallon per minute pumps run off the fan belt, I imagine they resemble an automotive water pump, only plumbed to run water from the tank to a discharge instead of circulating water through the engine. They seem to have been popular on small brush trucks from the 1930s through the mid 1950s, but I have been unable to find any photos or drawings of the actual pump. Not a big deal on the model since you can't see the front of the motor where the little pump would be anyway. Online searches turned up lots of places where I can buy Panama hats and belts. :blink:
