will turn into one of these mud pumps this week.except it will be bigger and kinda nice looking too. It will pump mud in a oilwell to keep it from blowing up those who are drilling wells.mud has saved the lives of thousands.

Them's beauty's for sure! Reminds me of a wood-burning generator i designed once - it was 4 assemblies on a big square base. Gasifier tank & filter in 1 corner, then to the motor, then generator, then wood drying box, then back into the gasifier. Everything piped into the next unit so little heat was wasted - the motor was much smaller though. Never did pay so honda don't need to worry - cute novelty though - people enjoyed seeing all that motion and machinery for a few twinkling light bulbs. My paddleboat's like that - all kindsa whirling things to push a fishing boat. Truth is, everything's like that except store bought has the moving parts hid. :)

That one is not one we built..Ours look much better Lars. I often improve them as we build newer ones..For instance I use channel iron and pipe to hold all the wires and you can unbolt this and work on the wires easy. It is fun if the boss lets me do changes.He holds me back often but when we have to go out in the field to repair one it saves a lot of time and makes a faster job with fewer tools.
