    Careful with that one, willte: That unit does not have a dedicated nipple for the suction side of the pump -- OK for RCABS, but if you plan to draw a suction through an induction line, this little pump is useless.

    They are good little pumps, Willie...they are made by a company called Koge, a German company, I think. I have one which will be going into the Type XX111, shame they only pump one way though, that's the only drawback. There is a matching solenoid valve which I have somewhere to release the air, or you can use a pinch valve, that works almost as well.

    Careful with the voltage though, they are only built for 4.8volts as an absolute maximum, I believe it says on the pump body the rating is 3.5 volts, but I have tested mine with 4.8v and it seemed ok at that.
