Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Yup Tango, '49 is right. I've seen mismatched pumps rip the wheel right out of the drivers hand. You'd need to have an idea what the PSI requirements are for the gear and then measure the Psi output of your pump to get a good match. Lots of devils in the details eh.

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Thanks guys --- good to know about the PSI. I had no clue. Will ask the Cummins tech what the output of that pump is as well as what box matches it best. Thanks again.

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

one of my friends does a similar thing in one of his tanks in the chrome shop.. i didnt know any old 10a battery charger would work. as long as the parts are suspended on the neg hanger going across the tank, the tank can be made of metal which creates the pos.
there are also large rectangular chemical shipping tanks that are abt 300 gal that would work great as well.

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hi '49, a 300 gal tank would be nice --you wouldn't have to dip one end at a time for larger pieces. You'd want to be careful about using a steel container as the anode (pos side) because in this process the anode is sacrifical and sooner than later the tank would eat away and leak.
