Dual March Pump Mounting
 
Recently I have been trying to find the easy, but proper way to mount 2 pumps on a vertical 2" x 2" cross beam on my eHERMS Brutus 10 clone. I ran to Ace this morning and found a couple U-Bolts. After putting it together I found its a perfect fit to mount 2 pumps with on the of the U-Bolts and thought I'd share my success and maybe help someone out since this community has done so much for me. Basically the 2 u-bolts squeeze the pumps together to grip the 2x2 beam perfectly. Hopefully this hasn't been posted already and the info can help someone.

The U-Bolt is 5/16" 2" x 3". The holes on the march pump were a little too small so I drilled out the holes a tad so that the threaded bolts went through easily.

I haven't welded in the vertical 2x2 beam yet because I wasn't sure how/where I was going to weld it. The peirce of steel its mounted to now is just a scrap piece of metal. I waited because I am going to make my keggles bottom drain and if I centered the vertical beam in the center it would be in the way of the mash tun drain.

i'm freaking in love with this. doing it!

looks like just doing one pump and 2 u bolts would have the same effect, have you tried just 1 pump?
