Title: Block and brick wall construction system

Abstract: A system and method for delivering mortar to blocks or bricks used for forming a wall. The system includes a pressurized tank which is used for receiving and dispensing the mortar at an elevated pressure. A delivery hose is attached to the tank. The delivery hose serves for carrying the mortar from the pressurized tank to a desired location. A bifurcated nozzle having an inlet and a pair of outlets is used for concurrent delivery of the mortar. The nozzle is attached to the delivery hose. The inlet of the nozzle is in fluid communication with the delivery hose. The mortar is delivered from the pressurized tank through the hose and then discharged as a plurality of streams or beads of mortar from the outlets of the nozzle onto the block used for forming the wall. The streams of mortar are placed on the ends and opposite edges of the side face of the block. Each block is placed end to end next to each other forming a first course of blocks. Additional blocks are placed on top of the side of the first course of blocks forming a second course of block. The wall continues upwardly as blocks are positioned over streams of mortar placed on the sides of each course of blocks. The position of the streams of mortar on the blocks is controlled by an index guide that is mounted on the nozzle. The index guide is used to engage the side of an alignment panel.
