Somehow I imagined that old pump just working forever, much like the nuffield. What a strange year this has been already.

Solution being worked on and we have enough fuel for today. Tom

They will try and help us out tomorrow. Not available today. We got through with the supply at hand, and a rubber hose. Don't drink 100 LL.

We have enough fuel for a few hours and will try and get more from another club this morning to get us up and running today. Friday 11AM

Arthur Fuels and KAS have us repaired. Mostly KAS!

All fixed... tek lubed up switch and cleaned up contacts.

Should be good till aircraft are switched to battery powered motors. (50 years or so)
