In case anyone is wondering, progress is slowly chugging along on my HADROKEN! Err, Hydrocannon. (If you don't get the street fighter reference... shame on you.)
opened my broken XP 150. It turns out it had the same torqueing PC issue that broke the XP95 I have. Anywho, I cut what I needed out of it and laid it into it's new body...
Intake is going up, output (to the PC+ball valve) to the left, OPRV to the right=> I may end up removing that...)
So that is how the XP 150 pump will sit inside of the cannon. I will drill two holes (and nick part of the casing) to make the pump check valves fit as shown. I will cut, screw, and glue part of the tracked shell of the 150 onto the Hydrocannon shell so that I can still open it and the pump will be both protected and reinforced.
The intake and output tubes of the pump are 5/16"ID X 1/2"OD. I will clamp some 1/2" tubing onto both ends and feed a short length to the PC, and the other will end up in the new reservoir. Maybe I will cut a hole in the top of the Hyrdocannon so that I can attach the XP 150 reservoir (wouldn't that look... cool? Hilarious?) I may end up using half of the stock reservoir, but no matter what this thing will be fed via a backpack . Maybe I will modify the new Super Soaker 100oz backpack (cut off the clip thingy) for use on the cannon. (seeing as my 3 MI aquapacks are all 50oz).
The only problem is, sure I can do all that, but I still don't have any LRT. And I can't get any without some help. I really do need LRT!
*Edit: LRT is now on the way...*
Using the stock PC would be a joke, and I just finished repairing all 3 of my Flash Flood, so using one of those isn't ideal. By the way, the Flash Flood PC will fit, but being ever so slightly
larger (in diameter and length) it presses against the tubing by the valve, and that could potentially cause problems. Also, don't drill the lower nozzle on a Flash Flood. Not even a little. Well, anyways, it reduces the range the more you drill, so be careful.
And if anyone has some input on my last post about using a single layer of LRT for the PC... that would be great!
