Re: air pump we already have??
[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img] Now gregg......you have NOT been paying attention.....I went over this very carefully with Farmjeep not very long ago. Because of the way that the screw-in adapter is constructed, it does not get it's air from the intake manifold, but takes it in on the vented sides of the adapter. They only pump cool, clean, fresh air. Been there, done that. A 1935 Ford pickup was our ranch buggy and we used the spark plug pump frequently to air up a flat on a tractor or wagon. Gee, when we got that '35 it was twenty years old....the same as our 1980 FS GM is right now[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] Interestingly enough, they make KITS to convert engines or just PORTIONS of engines to air compressors or vacuum pumps. We once had an air compressor that was a five-cylinder rotary engine like an airplane uses, and it had three cylinders as the engine and two for the compressor[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]
