Does anyone have a series of plans for a steam operated weir pump, typically 3 or 4 inches tall. I want it to go on the running board of my Simplex (had enough of trying to get injectors to work). I gather that Engineering in Miniature did a design some years ago, but I've not been able to find.

You may find looking at the vertical steam pumps supplied by Southworth Engines ( 0114 281 8595) will be of use.

Hope this helps.
