Ha,ha Michael !!!!!! NO – it was a pal of mine who is not a forum member.
Yes, The ign side was my first choice because of the “dry” area.
However, the drive spindle is very small and we have an issue with the direction of rotation. If I use the spare Gixer pump outer housing there is a seal and a bearing. I will do a sketch next week to explain. It does look very practical.
Thanx for the headsup on the different screw sizes. There is not much inertia to overcome from the pump.
Please keep your input coming Michael – always appreciated.
