From the net w/o any details. I think it looks like a 1924, given the high radiator looking cowl
and the angle of the door likely caused by a pre 25 hinge.

Wonder why they didn't direct drive the pump? Think it's geared up or down? Interesting that they used a hand pump to prime the centrifugal.

It's geared up. Centrifugal pumps need to go fast. The pump was made by Jaeger.

WOW! I didn't know a radiator held that much water!

Under axle radius rods and demountable wheels point to a '19 or later car. Low radiator could be up to mid '23. Sloped windshield could be mid '23 or an earlier Canadian car. Might even be pre '22 forged truss rods. I'm guessing early '23 or '19-'22 Canadian. Any thoughts?
