An unlikely application of a Marzocchi gear pump supplied by jbj Techniques, feeding kerosine into the afterburner of this jet powered VW at 180 litres/min, 160 psi (11.03 bar), delivered in 10 second bursts.
Kerosine and gear pumps usually do not mix. After discussing the application, the owner decided to mix in 2 stroke oil to provide some lubricity and prolong pump life. To date the pump has successfully delivered about 400 litres of fuel providing the additional thrust required to propel this incredible machine from . . .
The level of detail in this build is astonishing and an object of beauty as well as power.
Imagine the cleaning involved after the fun is finished.
