Abstract : There is presented a manifold assembly for a linear pump, the assembly including a tubular manifold for attachment to an outlet portion of the pump the manifold having therein a central bore extending lengthwise therethrough and aligned with the pump outlet, and a widthwise water inlet extending through a wall of the manifold to the central bore. The assembly further includes a sleeve slidably disposed in the central bore and adapted to be fixed to a piston in the pump. The sleeve is moveable in the manifold central bore in accordance with movement of the piston in the pump, to effect closure and opening of the water inlet to provide water pressure adjacent the piston as the piston reaches the end of its working stroke.
