Less you think of me as a Grinch; check for flexible connections to engine exhaust, jacket cooling water (unless integral fan cooled), and pump suction and discharge, if pump is on same skid. Don't forget to drink the milk and eat the cookies to keep the children happy!

Managed to delay til after Xmas, but now I've got a meeting tomorrow about it. The customer is apparently pushing hard to have the pump isolated from the baseplate, or otherwise cutting the baseplate between the pump and engine. Besides being a waste of time and money, I have to explain the implications these would have. To me, connecting a pump on springs to an engine on springs, any amount of pump nozzle load or other variable loads acting on either skid are going to result in enormous amounts of misalignment. In this case, I imagine the existing disc coupling would not cope with that misalignment and we would have to try something like a universal joint. Feels like an enormous pain in the ass, can I get some validation?
