Ram Pump

My father is very good with building things. He wants to build a Hydro ram or water ram but nowhere can he find any dimensions. Popular mechanics in the 70's gave how to build your own but most of the materials needed for that aren't available in the 90's. I have been searching the internet and cannot find anything but places to buy this pump. Its funny, you can find sites on how to build a bomb but not a water pump. I guess really not that funny. I would appreciate any help you could give me.
