I'm contemplating a project that requires power to be transmitted from a 4 or 5 HP gasoline engine, a distance of roughly 5 Ft. Mechanical transmission would be difficult. I was thinking of using a hydraulic pump and motor. Note that this would be used probably a few dozen hours a year at most but could be continuous for hours at a time. Can I use two identical pumps, one as a pump and the other for a motor? Can someone give me some sound advice? Tnx, Jim H.
