What is the white hose projecting out the back of the cab rear bulkhead. What was it's purpose?

Hi there Tommy

From memory its the primming pump discharge to the main water tank - will check next week on mine when i get home.

Found the pictures which explains it better "My pump when I rebuilt it"

There is two pumps, one being a primer which is driven by a friction disk, and the white hose is the water return to the main tank.  It then uses water pressure like a bellows to lift the primming pump from the drive pully and the main pump takes over.



All the best

Wayne
