Dave what is the part from the tap outwards about ....? i cant seem to figure out what it would do .... as i can see its a centrifugal impeller pump with inlet and outlet either side of body . but thats it . pretty basic to be honest .

i agree it looks like you fill with water though it then turn the tap of and then run the pump
pre wetted to start the suction off
like on my large centrifugal pump i run with MY LISTER A

Very nice looking pump shame about the alloy pulley, that will shine up nice for the rally field.
