Today we headed out to pump with the engine and attempt to draft some water.  Kevin Gibney met us at the farm and we headed out to a pond in Fawn Grove to set it up for drafting.  I recently purchased two sections of used 6 inch lightweight hard suction.  We got everything setup and I crossed my fingers as I pushed the primer handle.  We waited while the 37 and a half year old former city engine started pulling water.  Within 30 seconds the old bulldog started pulling water.  We discharged the water out the 2 1/2 inch nozzle I purchased in Allentown.  We were able to easily flow 265 GPM and had it up to 600 GPM.
