Yeah I gave the fags up around 8 or so years back and is what pays for the toys. I would have a hard time even to find a stubby now too. I think there is one in the fridge somewhere. Gone are the days of 10-12 schooner nights at the Club, diabetes puts a stop to a lot of things.

Cobbadog, An idea out of left field, as they say:-
Instead of the pump, how about running a flat belt drive to a double ended bench grinder and putting some load on the engine by grinding or wire-brushing parts for your next project? A lot of the older style bench grinders had two flat pulleys, one for the drive and one running free to move the belt on to when not using the grinder.
It could put a variable load on the McDonald and get some progress on another project at the same time.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,
