Weir Pump test on air and steam.

Hi,

We are going away somewhere warm for a some time, and I have been tidying up jobs in the shed, and this is the last of the videos made.

Bonjour Tony,
Nice pump indeed and it size woul let it go in a boat. The final steam could be feeding a boiler under 30/40 PSI, this is the plan isn't it  ;)

Hi Raphael,

The engine isn't mine but the owner is into boats, so, maybe.

Take care Tony.

Very neat. Watching the non rotative valve gear is fascinating.
