Most of the ones I have seen were car windscreen washers.

Hi there Martin, hope these links are of some use to you. Fairly straightforward to fit, you just need a water pick up point for the pump drilling through the hull, out of sight ideally (between the propshafts?). I 've always used a small speed controller for the pump and have it operating on a spare channel. The monitor can be made to move with a small servo fixed to it and some improvisation, beware of how much room you've got to work with though. Keep us posted on your build, I've got an Aziz in the loft to build at some point. Cheers, Dave.  :-))

Why buy a pump for £20 when you can get one the exact same minus the Graupner sticker for £4? And £2.80 for a metre of silicon tube? They're having a laugh...

I totally agree, just showing what the main dealers can supply. I often get bits from the scrap cars we have up the fire station to cut up for practise and make a donation to the Benevolent Fund. Some good parts can be had this way from pumps to wiring, rubber for fendering, wiper motors, fuses, you name it. Dave.  :-))
