Thebrass (bronze) impellor on the waterpumps indicates early production.
Usually, the newer ones with steel have a double sealed bearings. Anda
rubber seal which was kinda cheesy.
The ones with steel impellor should have a small pipe plug at a 90
degree angle to the vent hole on the bottom. Remove this plug abd install
an 8 mm rease zerk. The plug will not be present on pumps with a large
opening at about 45 degrees below center.
Don't you just love standardized parts.
No, I still haven't had a chance or need to go out to the junk yard. Maybe
one of these days soon, I'll need some more junk, I am starting to run a
little low. My Wife however, insists that I am not.
