    The pedal has always been rock hard on the second pump, with no fade. The heep will stop within a reasonable distance, and wants real hard to lock up the rear wheels through the weight transfer. ...

    Oil field engines..... You don't have a GMC 702 V-12 sitting in a barn? They were used in a lot of oil and water wells as pumps because of the massive torque at low RPM.
