So again where were the tons of water coming from. There is water in the limestone beneath the Plateau but how did they lift it up?

Yes and the sphinx is nearly the bottom of the ridge line

So you are saying one of the counter-weight drew up the other as the other went down?

So the downward counterweight had to be filled enough to move heavier one and over come friction, got there the water was dumped, stones but on it while the upwards one was emptied of stone and filled with water.
So the problem I see is a source of water getting it to the barge and then the runoff of the water dumped. How many tones of water do you figure was used to draw up the other side - how many ton of stones were they bringing up. So are the ramps out of the quarries to the point to the causeway?
Once the stone were removed how were they then moved up to their place on the pyramid? Or can you show in a diagram where the 'station' was? How was the pivot constructed and where?
