Well, two steps forward and one back.

Several years ago I bought a supposedly brand new, NOS water pump on eBay as a spare. I decided to install it, as the one on my car was aftermarket and pretty cruddy on the inside.

Imagine my surprise when on the test drive, I started getting a loud growl at about 20 mph in second gear! Brought the car home, at a low enough rpm to preclude growling, and took the belt off. Growling went away. Pulled the water pump tonight, and my ďbrand newĒ water pump doesnít have enough clearance between the impeller and the housing. So, it wasnít brand new, or something else was wrong...

I think Iíll clean out the old one and put it back together while the new one is out for a rebuild, so I can keep sorting.

Always something.

One more thing to help is to remove the light weight cross member under the bell housing, it's just four bolts and it gives you more wiggle room.

Are you talking about the flywheel/ clutch cover?

On my 37, it has to come off because it sits over the oil pan. And it has 10 bolts.

Beautiful car!

The pan only needs to drop a little in the front. It will drop more in the back, and once the counterweight on the crankshaft is rotated out of the way, it will slide out backwards, just clearing the clutch. Again - may need to lift the front of the engine if your front mount is sagging.

For my blog, there is a link in my signature to the blog, and here is a link to the exact post:

You can remove the pan. It's a bit of a pain, but possible.

First thing - if your front motor mount is saggy, you will need to lift up the front of the engine.

The front most counterweight needs to be horizontal.

I took mine off (1937 120) by removing all the bolts, then letting it drop where I could see the crank, then turning it until that forward counterweight was clear.

Bit of a pain, but doable.

One other thing - while you've got the car apart, I highly recommend checking out the bearings on your center steering link. They are bicycle style bearings, and tend to be completely shot. See my blog for details on how to do it.

Good luck, and welcome aboard!

Thanks!

And now it runs! Valves are a lot quieter now!

It was dark, and I still donít have the front clip on, so Iíll have to wait to drive it around and get it up to temp, but encouraging nonetheless.

Working on my 37 120. Sourced some NOS points, Autolite IGP-3028-LS.

On the new points, the spring is not fixed to the body, and it doesnít seem to want to hold the points closed. See how the old points the spring is fixed.

Do I have bad parts, or am I missing something?

Thanks!

Well, it has been a while since Iíve posted, but life has been in the way a little bit too.

Pulled the engine, painted it. Found I needed a new throw out bearing, so that held me up a little bit, but mostly, things have just been hectic.

New throw out bearing is installed, new fuel pump, rebuilt water pump, new flex hose, and the engine is back in. I also installed a fuel pump heat shield. With any luck, Iíll have it running this weekend!

I might recommend Brillman for your ground wire and John Uhlrich for your heat shield, if he carries one for that year.
