I don’t really have a parts list. I use a fuel pump that a friend gave me. He once told me the E8845 available from Amazon should be similar. I pump through a check valve to prevent exhaust pressure from coming back into the tank when the pump is off. I ran a 3/8” OD aluminum tube to a T, then 1/4 flex hoses to a fitting on the exhaust pipe. I welded a stainless 1/4 coupler into the exhaust pipe and screwed a brass MIP to flare adapter into that. No nozzle, just dump it into the pipe. I have used transmission fluid, half tranny fluid and diesel, and pure diesel. I always end up with some residue in the belly. Now I am getting some smoke oil from a crop duster and the residue is much lighter. I would say it puts out around 3 quarts per minute

Here is the pump I have used on several systems. Seems to work well.
