Yesterday, I remembered, that I forgot to do something. So, prior to
painting the tunnel cover (last pc to paint) I set it on the frame, because
I had wanted to make up some extra mounting brackets for it. As it was originally,
it wasn't very well secured, hence it tended to get bent/broken and cracked.
That's when I noticed all the room ahead of the shifter, under the tunnel tin.
So, I got back to thinking about a hydraulic pump and reservoir, as there
would be enough room in there. I went hunting in the goody building
again, and found this nice little hydraulic pump. Direction of rotation looking at
the output shaft is clockwise. That makes it more challenging.
For now, I'm going to carry one putting it back together while I try to
figure out how to drive this pump.
However it's driven, I feel it needs to be clutched. Getting these Kohlers
rolling over fast enough with the starter/gen is hard enough, without
trying to turn over a cold hydraulic pump.
Edit: The pump is a HC P100. I can't find anything about it on the WWW.
I was looking to see if it's reversible. That would make things sooooo much easier.
