    Made a start on making the bits that I'll be needing for HMS P222...this is ballast pump controller.

    Land Rover screenwash pump and an Mtroniks Micro Viper 15amp esc, mounted on a styrene plate.

    I've never tried to use a pump externally, Willie...I don't know what would happen to it, or how long it would last. I would guess it's probably not a good idea, but I don't know for sure.

    That speed controller is the one I often use and it will work with all battery types (lead acid etc.) (I even use them with Lipos but, of course, this model will not give low voltage warnings.)

    Yep that is the one, yes it is 12v, but the boat that I had it in was on 12v, you may be lucky and it may work on 6v, if I could I would say have a look at Hunter Systems but as I can not say this please do not have a look.

    h = 100mm

    Outlet external = 9.5mm with a step up to =10.75mm

    pump body diameter = 30mm

    All the best

    Fred

    All of the above is not the opinion of the AMS.
