so far i have managed to collect 3 of them...only one mounted right now and it seem's to do the job well..it's electric over hydraulic and was pretty stiff in the cold until i put a couple of magnetic oil pan heaters on the tank,problem solved. the other 2 are belt drive pumps and are just waiting 'til i find some decent older trucks to mount them on.
"was just wondering if the parallel squeeze ones were better at some thing's over the pivot ones"
Thank-you all for the replies
