1937 water pump

I ended up purchasing this water pump without much info other than it fit my year Packard and that it was NORS. Thought maybe the internal bearing would be less of a hassle than the bushing. Anyone know who manufactured these? There's no numbers stamped on it other then the 2 on the front and the L in the back. The shaft also needs to be pressed out forward about an 1/8", so wanted to know if anyone had any experience with this style. Thanks in advance

I don't have a prewar car so I cannot be certain of this. The vanes on that pump look very feeble to me. I know Kanter spent the money to have repros made for this epumps when the cores dried up.

I have put two of their 356 pumps and for a 288 on my cars with good results. You might also check with Gould rebuilders and Merritt, they might have some some on the shelf.

It is a little effort to put one on, and I wouldn't want to do it twice because it wasn't adequate . I have had to replace a good pump because someone else tightened the belt too much. The price for rebuilding and the price for a good repro seem to be close.

Best

Thanks John. Yes I've had one rebuilt twice already (under warranty of course so I paid for the initial price only). However shipping it back twice does surely add up! I was hoping that this latest one I got would've worked out for me and I liked that it had the internal bearing vs the bushings.

So how do the vanes on that pump look like compared to your other pump?

The vanes on this pump which are on the underside, are a little "beefier" than my other pump.
