Pumps Mounted and Ready

After a hiccup on the plumbing, the Pierburg pumps are in place.

They are mounted to the frame rail on the passenger side of the motor bay just ahead of the power steering pump. Once again, Robert Juarez has built a little jewel that will be mostly obscured by the motor, accessories, plumbing, and wiring after everything gets installed.

Both catch tanks and pumps are well positioned. Between the 90 degree elbow and a "U" curved hose, the pump inlet will be fed by the catch tank output. Input to the catch tank is through the AN-8 elbow fitting at the top of the tank which will connect to the output of the heat exchanger. 

Here's a closer look at the inlet hose arrangement:
