Just a minute to post... i blasted back down the coast once i had the parts in hand and fixed the 1968 gorman rupp water pump. while people were watching! i love that shit, when people are all standing around...
"you are never going to fix it..." was the first comment.
"i don't know why we don't buy a new pump?!?" someone said.
"why didn't you just get a new pump?" said another.
"how much would a new one cost? this is a waste of time!"
was the last comment i heard before i hit the remote start switch and spayed two of the three that were standing behind it with GALLONS of water!!!
"watch out! when this thing fires up its gonna spray some serious water!" i yelled over the twin cylinder air, cooled, straight pipe exhaust, Onan engine... heh heh.. doubt me, fuckers....
mechanic one, team "you cant do it" zero!!!
