WWII KI Gas Pump. MKII K40. Spitfire Typhoon
Here we have a very clean and tidy MKII K40 Ki Gas pump as fitted to late MK Spitfires and other such aircraft such as the Typhoon and Tempest.
The pump was used to prime the engine for starting.
The pump is still functional and shows no sign of damage although it would need a professional examination before been considered for use in a flyable aircraft. The picture show the pump in situ in a Spitfire and a Typhhon
