I am making a smoke fluid loader using a fluid loader kit, its a pump and a 2oz bottle. and a signal bridge that i took out the lights and mounted a 1 rpm motor to it and a arm to the motor for the filler pipe. you can see a test video of it without the pump working, i am still waiting for a longer tube to go from the building into the signal bridge to the filler pipe. go to youtube and look for
boxcar2217 to see the test run video
here are 2 link on the pump kit and motor and arm

another way to hide the pump and bottle is to mount the pump vertically and use a can thats 7"w x8"h
and notch out a place for the hose to go from the pump to the signal bridge and detail the can to look like a holding tank.

friday nov 11 tested the pump and i have one problem. the fluid out the pipe filler was good. but my pump itself is leaking. I hope the mnp company will send a new one since this item was purchased less than 30 days ago and tonight was the first time operated. here is the test run of the pipe filler in action.

since the pump leaks I am mounting the pump vertically to prevent excess leakage. and I am scraping the building to house the pump and fluid bottle, I am going with cans to have them look like tanks.
here are the photos of what i am doing plus a wiring diagram photo.
