The pump does run sometimes, and here is the proof.

The volunteer looking at his watch is checking the running speed of the pump which will be 30 to 32 strokes per minute on the pistons, 15 to 16 each running in balance. The green pit wheel, nearest the camera, is normally run at 5 to 6 revs per minute, this is geared up to around 15 r.p.m. on the red flywheel. Any faster than 40 strokes per minute will be damaging to the pump.
The shutter speed of the camera was around 1/4 of a second to catch the movement.
