Air Powered Drum Pump

#1 Post by John_Heard » Mon Mar 23, 2015 12:34 pm

New toy I picked up last weekend @ Harbor Freight, it's an Air Powered Drum Pump.

I've had 3 or 4 different low cost manual pumps I've used for pumping fuel, and they all are junk. I finally broke down and bought one of these $65 air powered pumps. No moving parts, it pressurizes the drum and forces the liquid up the tube. Hopefully this one will work good!

John, have you tested the pump yet?

No, haven't tried it yet. It'll be a while before I pump out some fuel for the car.
