Try using the Corvette link, it talked and showed how to attach to helmet. Back in the day one company I worked with had a qute saying on equipment instruction envelope, when all else fails, read instructions.

Regarding the ice blocks, I usually freeze chunks of ice in 1qt bricks. my wife is a willing participant in the endeavor and lets me use all her tupperware a few days before the race. I freeze a dozen or so and keep it in a "yeti style" cooler at the track and the ice blocks last all weekend even in 100 deg heat. Then again that's for a sprint race weekend where I just use 2 or 3 per 30 min race.

but they still do great on enduro stuff as well-- pop the top open during a fuel stop and toss a couple more bricks in, let the excess water splash around in the floor and it'll be gone after the first few turns. :)

David,

I initially saw your post and pics and that is good...……..was just hoping someone had McGyvered something a little more elegant.

I used the cool shirt with the normal pump inside of a 24 qt cooler with an off switch . Protect the pump inlet with a box, and simply dump in a block of ice or 2 at the stops. We also have a ball valve to dump the overflow on track , not in the pits.
FWIW square ish gallon jugs freeze best and if you think ahead you can bring 20 or so leaving the caps on. This way you can remove the dead ice and replace without overflowing . The ice melt speed inside the jug is almost ideal as you may have some still at 2 hrs.

Ileft this assignment to one of the pilot guys that was worthless anywhere other then in an airplane .

I'm a bit afraid to ask...……..but where would you put it? I ordered one so we will see how it works in a 130 degree F cockpit.
