    The pump it the only thing I've been able to find anything about on this. It's a very good idea and believe it would really work good I just would love to know the history of it.

    What kind of machining equipment did this gentlemen own or operate?
    You seem to come up with quite the oddball stuff.
    Was he making this stuff with available parts?

    He was just a old school car guy. He did lots and lots of reading so maybe he just sought out odd stuff he read about at one time is all I can figure. He was a super smart man.

    There was another manufacturer of dual plug heads for the flathead- Elco.

    I would love to run this but would probably pass out from the cost of duel plug heads.
