Hey guys. Its been awhile since I've been around here. I'm currently working on my senior design project in Mechanical Engineering. I'm heading up engine design for the University of Cincinnati's Formula SAE team.
I'm attempting to validate a design for a smaller more compact radiator. To do this I'm designing a rig that simulates the vehicles cooling system. I need a small electric pump that I can hold at different flow rates to simulate our engine's water pump. The first thing that came to mind was an intercooler pump that I know a lot of you use for your heat exchangers.
I've found a few online. I know its a Bosch pump that matches the flow rate I need. Since our team's budget is very tight, I'm hoping someone would be able to donate or give me a good deal on a spare LSJ or Ford Lightning pump. If you're a company thats interested I can offer you some sticker space on the finished car!
Thanks a lot!
