    If you look at the middle photo, you'll see the pressure relief valve. Just ahead of that there is a "T" that goes to the motor and just before that you can see a black cap that is where the hose hooks up. The pump shut off valve is between all of this and the pump. I may have a better photo.

    This is what I started out with....

    Then, and you saw the now.


    This is but a small part of everything I've done so far. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING on this poor 1975 Miller had been touched and it has all been wrong. This is no joke.

    The housing was the wrong one for a Ford and had been ground and double drilled or maybe triple drilled to make it fit, so I just did away with it completely. Now I've got some extra parts that I'll be putting on Craigslist or in spam to get rid of.

    Well Lowe's must be going down. The one I go to has gotten to the point that nothing is stocked and no one is around to help out, and if they are you need an interepter (sp) to talk to them. Are we still in America?

    The home improvement stores around here are still America! All the employees are white, but there are an increasing number of Mexicans coming in because they have replaced a lot of the construction crews.

    I go to Lowes, there are 3 of them within 10 miles of my shop, but the closest Home Depot is about 25 miles away.

    Damn! I had no idea that you could run AN fittings and rubber hose together. I always figured rubber hose wasn't worthy of anything more than a stainless hose clamp. I need to get out more.
