Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2008: Can You Identify this Oil Pump?

This oil pump was mounted to a standard Ford timing cover using a homemade bracket on the sprint car I'm restoring. Anyone know what it was orginally from? Thanks

Can you post a picture of how it relates to the timming cover? AKA a pic of the cover and spacers...and or bracketry. Jerry

My guess is Continental. I think the "L226" is a Continental engine model

Thanks for the replies. As far as the bracket on the cover it was poorly made, and for some reason or another it hit the garbage, but I kept the pump.

Also as I understand it the L226 was a Jeep model that used the Continental engine?

Thanks again

Kaiser and other 6 cylinder cars used a 226 Continental flathead 6.
Jeeps with a 6 were more like 150 c.i.d. Same engine as the 6 in a Henry J.

Anyway it looks like it might be a interesting choice for a oil pump for a T. It would appear that the inlet is on one face and the discharge on the other. By the looks of it both holes are the same size so likely it wouldn't make a lot of difference. I see on the Kanter web site that pump MIGHT cost only $75.00 ( I see there is a earlier version where only a rebuild kit is available at $135.00).
Any way looks like it is worth checking out. The one you have might be reuseable with a good clean and maybe lap the side covers.

Les I think you may have looked at the wrong column in the Kanter catalog? The $75 pump and $135 rebuild kit are for the Henry J? It appears in their catalog that the 226 was used in the 1946-55 Kaiser Frazer. There is only a rebuild kit available. Thanks for all the help

well maybe but the implication was the 226 was used till 1966 (but it might have a different pump)

Les, thanks for the help, now the quest!

How about a 1930 Model L Lincoln?

Nice looking engine. That engine turning is a nice touch on the front cover. Looks like a '28 Chevy engine?

It is a 28 Chevy, not mine, but in the description the oil pump was described as a 1930 Lincoln. I got excited because it looks the same as the one I have.

"L" Lincoln oil pump would be my best guess. Sorry, I don't have one here now, and it has been years since we worked on any of those engines.

Here is a scan of a poor copy of the Lincoln Service Bulletin.

L Lincoln - 1

not my engine, yes its' a 28 Chevy. In the description of the motor the oil pump was described as a 1930 Lincoln Model L. I got excited because it looks like the one I have.

As an aside, the "L" Lincoln oil pressure regulator was a somewhat popular addition the hotties used on their modified T engines. This one is on Wes Clover's Fronty.

While rummaging through some old stuff, I found one in the collection.
