List; I may be wrong but I think Stoddard Solvent was what I was using to
test aircraft fuel pumps, back in the dim past when I was gainfully
employed. Al was using his test stand to view flow patterns at different
pressures and with different nozzles. Also to test pumps and flow in GPH. It
was a long hard fight to get from 7.90 to 7.50. And by then some were
running 7: teens.   RF
