Twelve water jacket covers
Home away from home

Sorry for the duplication, I thought I was on the blog.

I was working on the water jacket covers and noticed I had a small rust hole in one corner.

I removed a brass plate that had been soldered to the back of the cover in about 5-6 spots.

It basically serves to keep water out of the cover?

Is that supposed to be there?

There was an accumulation of rust scale in between the cover and the brass plate. Odd.

My Pierce 8 has a jacket with slots which helps direct water to the cylinder bores but this one does not do that.

I am perplexed.

In the picture, bottom to top, jacket cover, brass plate rust inside.
