(Working model shown.)

Dummy (Water flows through the model.)

Kit consists of 4 lost wax bronze castings and drawings. You furnish the bolts/nuts and do the machine work.

Most live steamers have bought the dummy pump for cost savings since you cannot see the pump working. The tender-supplied water flows through the dummy to the hot water pump.

Postage & Insurance:$20

Working Pump (No longer available.)

The working pump is a booster and is not required for the system. This pump will deliver 3 gallons per minute (when open to atmospheric pressure) or will develop 35 psi in the hot water pump inlet when the hot water pump is shut down. The nozzle can be interchanged to derate the pump if required.

Working Model Drawings

Only about 20 working pumps have ever been sold in the last 23 years and I have not restocked the expensive impellers or turbine wheels. The drawings show how to make all the parts including impeller and turbine wheel for those who want to build a working pump.
