OK, my bad. Haven't played with it directly, as I don't care for playing with explosives - and my garage is most decidedly not a spark-free zone. > The supply > pump is about 3" long, and is stuck on the side of the main pump > which is about 8-9" long. > I've just looked in my Bentley, and there's no mention of a > model with an external pump either. Fair enough. > Do you know something I don't (about 900 pumps that is ;-)? Yup, I know that I'm wrong on this one, and you're not. But I think we both knew that already.
