Default Vacuum pump build finaly done

This is the year I decided to rebuild my vacuum pumps and upgrade to new ones. I went a little crazy with the Ebay purchases. I picked up 6 over the last month. I decided to make up a double pump to get the CFM's up. I like the Gast 2567 dry vane pumps that will pull 28 HG's all day, week or month long. I rebuilt one that I have used for 12 years and the vanes were free and only worn about 1/4". This is my latest build it should give me 40 CFM's and it does pull 28 HG's.

Jim I ran it for a few hours to see if I could break it and a neighbor called to see who I was using to clean my carpets. Yes I do get the looks from a few Gawkers.

Ogdens That's a 8hp I do have 3 more Gasts sitting on the bench without a home and a 9hp Briggs that will work with a axillary tank I'm thinking 3 pumps 60CFM at 28

Well I finally got to the rest of the pump builds. the last one is the black 2567. They all have new vanes and are pulling 28 HG's compensating for altitude. The mufflers work great and without them you cant talk in the garage.

I build the roll cages out of 5/8's rebar so I can strap them to the trailer for transport and protection against ME. Last year while transporting my pump that's mounted on a tank down the road with the ATV it developed the DEATH WOBBLE and took a header. I wont mention any names but if the guy that was running behind me in full tapping gear would have held on better it might not have happened.
