Perhaps you should, I certainly would like to see that. I only heard about an hydraulic pump connected to the engines, a type of pump that was completely unknown to all professionals on that professional forum, but even if it existed and it worked, it would have not served any purpose the moment the engines were out of order, as they actually become.

That, of course, has nothing to do with the main pumps being "half" operational, with one generator out of order from the two that provided energy to them.
