  1. At this point, Virginia is asking $5,000 or best offer for the car and all associated parts. Again, her number is 330/257-0421. Can't be too many of them around, and though I am no expert on the pre-war and very early vehicles like this (though I surely do appreciate them), I had one person whose opinion I highly respect tell me that, this car complete is "ten times the car" a Model T is!

    Yes it is.


  2. Bill,

    If the dist.unit has the taper shaft and the water pump has a taper shaft like you show then all you need is a steel compelling that has a taper inside to match the taper on the shaft also a flex disc compelling to connect the two units togeather then you will be good to go.This hook up is what the later "C" engine has.

    WE do carrie the Disc compelling But we are out of the tube type and these were NOS have no idea where we can fine a supplier for them.


  3. The "B" engine was the first 6 volt engine for the DB and the Rubber tube compelling was first used the "B" engine with 3 maine bearing was only used for a few months then te "C" 5 maine engine came when the 5 maine bearing engine was interduced they went two disc compelling.i belive I have a NOS tube compelling in stock will look tomorow.The said compelling looks like a rubber hose but is reinforced with thread like the disc compelling.

    But if you had a generator with a taper shaft and the steel compeller for the generator and the Pump one can use the taper water pump shaft and the disc compellers.

  4. Ray,

    If you have a 6 volt system the pump is same I can bet you have a early "B" engine.the shaft would be stright on the distributor end takeing a hose type compelling with a hole for a bolt to fasten the compelling,instead the disc.

    This pump is for the 124/126 The Fast 4 (128) is located back near the fire wall and is driven off the generator with a long shaft.


  5. One should not say anything is rebuiltable Yes everthing can be fix BUT will it last.

    We are the bad guys that said this pump isn't worth to be rebuilt we feel that one would be better off fining another cord.Doing these pumps for the past 35+ years we have had our share of ones that just fix it and not haveing it last long.

  6. Greg,

    We have install many sleeves in car/truck hIt Miss ,boat, B&S engines and the normal interference fit is .002. I can't understand why the sleeve has to be turn When we order sleeves we give the bore size and what wall thickness we want. then bore block to the sleeve size.We never attempt to bore block with out sleeve in hand. Just one guys way of getting the job done.
