Default Mounting March 809 to single tier

I am almost complete with my single tier brewery and I have 2 march pumps that I need to mount to the rig. My pumps are of the brass head variety and did not come with a mounting bracket. What have you used to secure them to your rig? I was thinking of a pipe support like this but I'm looking for ideas.

That would work just fine. Make sure of the diameter of the pump. You don't give an exact model number so I assume it is this 809 model and this document says it is 3.38": http://www.marchpump.com/documents/d...064-0200d1.pdf. Make sure you not cover the ventilation holes.

Here it is:

All I did was take a billet of aluminum, machine out the OD of the pump I wanted to mount 2x, one on each side of my center beam, and cut the biitch in half to make a clamshell like clamp. Piece of cake and uber-sturdy.
