Living in the Mojave desert I have been very leary about driving my T around in hot weather. My car had a water pump on it when I bought it but it leaked and I could not get it to stop so I took all your advise and removed the pump. I have been driving around for most of the winter and spring with no problem but today it was 103 and 15 % humidity. I drove in both stop and go and long steady runs with no problem. Car runs great without dumping water overboard. I am pleasantly surprised and very grateful. After it cooled down I checked the water level and it was right were I started. Thanks for the advise. I thought you would like to know.

Scott. --- My son informs me that anyone living in Lancaster Ca needs a lot of help. :-)

If you live on the east side you really need help.

He lived there for about 2 years and recently move to the right coast instead of the wrong coast.

That explains your addiction to the Model T. :-)

Help is on the way!

But you need to purchase more model T's if you hope to recover.

My wife and I both grew up in Lancaster. We moved to Bullhead City Arizona in '72 making Lancaster seem rather cool. We now live in Montana and lately it's been as hot as Lancaster. I also pulled the pump on my T and have no heating problems. I can't believe how big Lancaster is now. PK

The world is very small..
One of our sales people's last name is Lancaster and he lived in Lancaster Ca.

Lancaster must be full of famous people.

Yep Lancaster keeps getting bigger as more people move in from other states. Its always interesting to hear where they are from and what brings them here.

I lived in Lancaster, CA for six (hot) months back in 1980 when I worked for Pratt & Whitney.

Back then, Lancaster was the big town and Palmdale was a run-down backwater. Rosamond was a gas station and a couple of trailers.

Now, Palmdale is as big or bigger than Lancaster and Rosamond is a real town! :-)
