I'll get a photo of the impeller tomorrow and then you can go from that....

Ok so it was a bit longer than "tomorrow"!

Here's the impeller, as you might be able to see it has the veins going the right way for the pump if it turns the wrong way according to the arrow....

So it looks like the arrow is wrong.

For conformation and for those who don't know how it works...

Main casting has been in my bubble pot for a week now and that's come up rather well...

Managed to get it cleaned up and dried off and a coat of rust converter applied, does that stuff do anything???

Pump looks a bit different now, small amount of touching up to do and then it's pipe work.

Hopefully it'll work!

Cheers Neil. Got a few bits to touch up but I'm pleased with it. Hope to have it at the organ festival on the 20th

I'll have to wait a bit to see it then, I'm at a local one that weekend, thankfully.
Getting fed up with the dartford crossing lately. Lol
