Motor for Duo-Art Steamboat Pump
By Bill Chapman

While I don't know what motor speed is used for the steamboat pump,
I did find written on one of my pumps, "Eight pulses per minute".
At the AMICA convention we debated whether this means counting the
pulses of each of the six bellows or whether it means revolutions per
minute.  Once this is known, varying the pulley size may adjust it to
the correct output of air.
