I have 22hp, at 3000 psi. The rpm max is 4000 and 45 ft-lb of torque. I am running a tracked machine with multiple accessories. Will this pump come close?
A: At 3600 rpm (pump maximum) this pump will theoretically develop 23 gpm. That flow at 3000 psi will consume 63 HP from an industrial gas or diesel engine.

Are the bearings strong enough to mount a double v belt pulley on the shaft to drive the pump?
A: No. These pumps do not have shaft bearings, only sleeve bushings, and are not rated for side load. Customers have done so, but with the understanding that the lifespan will be decreased.

Will this pump work both directions? CW and CCW? I am looking for a pump used similar to boat steering where the steering wheel is mounted to the shaft of the pump.
A: These are meant to be rotation specific. Any excessive pressure on the inlet side will cause the shaft seal to blow out. If you need a gear type motor to meter fluid both directions in an application like that, perhaps one of the smaller Cross motors would work.

how much hp do I need for 1500 psi
A: This will depend on the gallons per minute being pumped. It will deliver about .65 GPM for every 100 RPM. At 1500 PSI it will require 1 HP for every gallon of oil flow.
