I agree, if this was a business or even if I had a lot to split I would use the gas engine. But, I'm married, so "investment capital" is much harder to get then "operational cost." That means I can't buy either the PTO or gas engine pump, but spending $20 at a time on fuel several times is an easier expense to get approved.

Only a woman could rationalize that line of thinking... but I hear your problem. The 5600 will make about 12 at 2100 rpm. It'll mabey make 7-8 at a brisk idle. I'd try to get a big Prince pump as quick as I could. Not the little one, the big, 22 gpm one.
Just leave the Briggs engine to rot somewhere else.

It's not necessarily about rationalizing, more about not wanting to go to the well again at this point. Once I have a usable tool it's easier to get upgrades. Now I just have a pile of parts. And I ordered the splitting wedge this morning and once she sees the credit card charge I'll have to explain that one too. I just remembered I have an old Howard Power Arm backhoe with a PTO pump, I'll have to dig that out of the snow to see what flow that pump is, maybe I already own the solution. Thanks for the info.
