Default InShop Water Feeding System

Does any one know how to set up an in shop water feeding system to break in the Miss Budweiser's nitro engine? What materails would be needed? Should a hose be placed over the water cooling intake and should it be pressurized? IF yes to the pressure how much and when should the pressure be turned on before the engine start running or after?

There are a lot of ways to do this. I rigged up a 3/4" PVC threaded fitting with a short piece of 3/4" pipe with a cap glued to it. I drilled a hole for a piece of 1/8" brass tube and epoxied it into place then run some fuel tubing off that to connect to my engines. Some people use a 2-liter pop bottle to siphon water to the engine. One more fancier way is to hook up a car windshield washer pump. You can get those from junkyards cheap. It doesn't take a lot of water to keep the engine cool, I have my tap just barely cracked open in my setup.

I use this thing called the pond. There is plenty of water and it even puts a load on the prop.
