After trying for awhile to put the pump on i couldn't,Was worried about applying to much downward pressure and bending it..
So i rang the makers and its the thickness of the rubber that seals it off that makes it harder to attached...




I persevered with it and it popped into place,getting it off now is easier.

The Tanami manufacturer will offer to send you out a thinner one if you have the same issue.

Dont be to scared to apply that initial pressure it takes some oomph !



Cheers

I can't wait for the one to suit the wide mouth Willow plastic jerry to be released.

I wonder if the EO Shop will stock them??

Being a one-eyed supporter of the Tanami Pump Pro from my understanding they are working on it...Twinkles asked the question yesterday...

I have my spies out there as well LOL

I will have to extend the length of the hose they supply so I don't have to remove the jerrys from the trailer :)

Warfer,

I have one of the original Tanami Pumps and treasure it.

If you wish to make it easier to attach you could try replacing the thicker rubber seal with a "generic" spare, available at Repco, Super Cheap and some camping stores.

I always carry a couple of spares just in case one of the seals on the jerrycans or the pump are damaged.

They are a really super invention aren't they?

I can transfer at least three jerrycans full of fuel using air from my spare tyre which I pump to 55psi.
I have made a three metre section of air hose with a clamp on valve connector at each end and an in-line air valve (tap) to control the pressure.
The Jerry's stay in their cradle on the front a-frame of the camper.

Great info Bill,I have spare Radiotor Hoses,Fan Belts etc etc,Behind my seat but never thought about the Jerry Seal's..Cheers

I havnt used mine yet but what i think i will do is get a metal Jerry Carrier
and screw to side/ back of tub,fill it in there and leave it there without taking it in or out....

Yeah i think $89 is nothing for what they do...

Cheers

The Dealer Outlets seem to be limited.

None here in WA. Only one in Metro Brisbane.

Do they post out from the website? There didn't seem to be any facility to purchase on-line.

Hi Gone Bush,

I talked to one of the owners a few weeks back, he tells me BCF and a heap of 4wd stores across Australia have signed on to distribute them.

They should start to become more available quite soon!

Hi Gone Bush,

I forgot to mention, give the Product Sales Manager listed on their website a holler.

Mark is a real helpful bloke and should be able to advise on purchasing options.

In some respect Warfer it has!

There are many cases of unscrupulous sellers masquerading as satisfied customers to push a product!
