Ford 300 Water Pump

Here are some pictures of a Ford 300 driven water pump on Hogback Hill Motocross Track in Palmyra, NY.

This was seen at the 2016 Baja SAE World Challenge, sponsored by Rochester Institute of Technology. Schools design, build, and race off-road buggies. They compete in individual car events on first day, and then all of the cars race in a 4 hour endurance race on the second day. My son Peter is the lead engine builder on the RIT team. Briggs and Stratton sponsors the series, so everyone runs a stock 10 horse, single cylinder, overhead valve, 305 cc motor, but there's room for some minor tweaks here and there. Their car is pictured above. Here is a video from the event:

i wonder how deep that well goes that they need the power the 300 generates.
