How what is done? If you mean hydraulics yes that is one way, a little backstory or information would go a long way towards me understanding your exitement.

I never said that I was excited (I am though).It's gear drive.Do you have any ideas how it was done?

I have not seen a mount like that one on a single but have seen many gear driven hyd pump setups. The pump in the pic is identical to a pump I have here that came off of a forklift. That is a clean install though and looks as if it belongs if only the proper fittings and lines would have been used. As a rule even on input sides of pumps friction fittings with clamps are not advisable due to the nature of hydraulic systems. While working in the Navy I have seen even lower presure systems do significant damage to human skin, a pinhole in a 3000 PSI system will take your fingers off like a hot knife through butter while doing wipe downs! Fluid under pressure is nothing to be played with lightly.

I thought it was interesting  how he drives the pump.The mount is home made and he cut the cam gear off another crank and mounted it to the pump.

Looks good but seems like a lot of work when a simple mount and belt would do the same.

Low pressure systems frequently have clamps on them on the inputs, ussually as a cost cutting measure. I am not saying it is lethal, just a better idea to run proper fittings, I was always taught to use the same fittings on low pressure systems as on higher pressure systems just to be safe. I was always working hydraulics on aviation equipment where failure even in small ways can cause big problems. In my opinion saving a buck is not worth the hassle of chasing a leak or failure.
