Funny experience last weekend. Stanley, with boiler filled by siphon the previous week and still under vacuum, was towed on a trailer for about 250 miles to an event. Result boiler pressure changed from vacuum to about 20psi - obviously the bouncing up and down on the trailer operates the water pump. The by-passes were closed. About a cupful out of the blowdown was enough to let down the pressure. I wonder if the oil pump also operates in this situation? Can't tell as I only checked the oil usage after running the car.
