Fallout Shelter – Pump Belt

Fallout Shelter — Pump Belt. (Fuji Neopan 400. Nikon F100. Noritsu Koki.)

The above picture is of a timing belt for a generator circulating system. (For background, click here.) The circulating system consists of a large series of pumps and belts that can experience all kinds of problems. My father has many spare parts, which is important considering the fallout shelter was built twenty years ago (some parts might be very difficult to come by).

    • Sadly, no. It’s too cramped back there where the engines are, and I don’t currently have a wide-angle lens (something I really need to invest in one of these days).

  3. I would love to do a photo essay of your dad and his shelter.
