Vacuum pump location?

Colin Spencer
>I have just bought a Gast 0523 vacuum pump. This has a fan on the rear of the pump for cooling. I have read articles here and on the web as well as in Woodturning design about Vacumm chucking but the pump location gets little mention. Where do I mount the pump to keep the dust out of the fan housing? How much airflow is ith likely to need? Can anyone help or is this a Gast question.

TIA
Colin
