Can I remove the tank and use a external tank for the oil?
A: The pump pulls fluid from the tank via a pickup tube, and returns fluid to the tank via a port in the endhead section. It is possible, but would require some modifications to be determined in the field. Customers typically plumb additional capacity into the existing reservoir without removing it.

This says it is a horizontal mount but is it possible to mount it vertically?
A: It is possible mount these vertically. This requires the purchase of the vertical mount kit (item #KV). It is not advertised on our website, but it is available.
