Install Rainman Phantom Pump Kit
Hi, I purchased a Rainman Phantom Pump Kit. It's not the tilted version. I need detailed step by step instructions on how to install it. I feel like a newb.

Do you have a VASA?

Classic Rainman kit, like these?
Separate the frame from the body. Set the front thumb screw aside, you won't be using it.
Remove the stock handle. Pump rod (or bolt rod according to the manual) is attached to it. Unscrew the pump rod. Keep the spring on the rod.
Screw the pump rod into the Rainman pump handle. You probably won't screw it in fully, since the L-shaped end must point slightly upwards when re-installed.
Keep the handle on its mounting bracket/guide rod thing. Position the bracket below the front of the trigger frame, lining the hole up with the frame hole. The pump rod should slide into a slot on top of the frame, with that L-shaped end still pointing up. That L tip goes up into a hole in the bolt.
Pinch the frame & body together. Hopefully, the kit came with a new frame screw, since you can't use the thumb screw. Screw that in.
Pump rod might give you trouble, it likes to slip out of the bolt during re-assembly. Some wiggling & finagling may be necessary before tightening the frame screw.
I've got a Vanguard kit on one of mine, it's a copy of the classic Rainman kit.

Nercore, Yes, that's the kind. Thanks for the instructions. I'll try that tonight after work.

Took a long time but I got it installed. The pump rod kept on coming off and it was a pita to bracket in line with the frame and the body hole. Thanks again for the help!!!
