[DML] Re: New DeLorean Power Pump

Why not use a piece of aluminum pipe and an aluminum pipe cap instead?
Guaranteed never to disintegrate. DeLorean tank boot is exactly the
same size as 2" NPT pipe. You can rig up a carrier like some of us low
pressure boys, but simply extend it further into the tank (all the way
to the bottom of John's new pump). Drill and tap the cap for a 1/8"
NPT brass nipple to pass through. Pump goes on one end, inside the
carrier, and a pickup screen of your choice goes on the other (pickup
screens with 1/8" NPT threads are common industrial supply).
