DESCRIPTION AND LOCATION OF MAJOR COMPONENTS.
a. Diesel engine (1). Four-stroke, vertical cylinder, air-cooled diesel. Provides power necessary
to drive the pump. Diesel engine is attached to the engine mounting plate. The engine
mounting plate is attached to the pump frame using rubberized shock mounts to reduce noise
and vibration during pump assembly operation.
b. Centrifugal pump (2). Continuous duty, self-priming, 125 GPM at 50 feet of head. This pump
incorporates a check valve on its suction side. The centrifugal pump is mounted to the diesel
engine and is keyed to the engine's output shaft.
Pump frame (3). The pump frame provides mounting points for the sound enclosures, pump,
and motor assembly. It rigidly supports all components of the pump assembly and provides
four folding handles to allow four soldiers to move the pump assembly as required.
