Have you thought about temporary electric pumps like ones used on hot rods........it will get you going. Finding a pair of pumps isn’t going to be easy........

With all the Cadillacs made from 1915 to 1917, there has to be a pair of water pumps out there somewhere.   I'll be at Hershey in a few weeks with high hopes of finding a pair.

 

Thank you for the suggestion of electric pumps, but I'm hopeful there are a pair of original pumps out there.....somewhere.

Bob, I started back 50 years ago also. The electric pumps re not expensive, and they have temperature control......neat stuff to get you running if you desire.

   A couple years ago I heard of a 1916 Cadillac engine no longer powering the sawmill it once did. Complete, I believe, in a reasonable condition I was told.  Not too sure what that means, not decayed I would hope. Any interest in pursuing this engine ? A range in price might incentivize the guy who told me about it to retrieve it. Not an easy undertaking I was told, way out in the Maine or New Hampshire woods someplace, stumbled on while hunting.  He is a resourceful fellow though. I can try and find out more if there is interest.   Jim 43

   I will try and get in touch with the guy who told me about it. It has been a couple years. If I can learn more I will let you know.   Jim.

   I suppose electric pumps referred to above are  available in 6 volt these days?  I used 12 volt bulbs in my 1915 Model T off a dedicated 12 V battery under the rear floor and just charged it up with a charger.

   Same with my John Deere Gator that I plow snow with. What a treat a backup camera is when backing up is 1/2 of the adventure.....always.  I charge a separate battery, less necessary as the Gator is 12 Volt, but it leaves the vehicle system alone.   Jim43

Bob,

  I know we talked about water pumps last fall and I was going to look and see what I had. I had a big old bldg across town,a guy rented the West side but bought a place and was moving out. I was trying to finish one in my backyard and decided to list the other one in case it was going to take awhile to sell. The damn thing sold before the ink was even dry on the listing and there was 14,000 sq ft  of crap I had to move. So nothing got done for months but I may have a pair of later pumps,maybe even into 20-21. I was having trouble with one on my 15 and put an 18 pump on it with minor changes. I really don't want to sell any of them but I would sell one pair. They may have repairs,probably do but if you want to chance them I'll get some pictures. And I'll PM you a price.
