Water Pumping Aermotor Engine

8-cycle Aermotor engine gets ready for show season with a homemade water-pumping display.

Pumping Tube
The parts that make the whole: The pumping tube is shown along the top, the shoulder for the outlet on the left side is held in place by plastic block spacers with metal flat washers. The dome cap and fitting can be seen at the center of the picture. Shown at right is the foot valve with water holes drilled, and just below that is the pump rod and piston with valve and valve upward travel limit sleeve.
