Is this an aftermarket water pump. I notice the grease cup is on the front support bushing housing rather than on the pump body. The only thing I found on the body were what looked like casting numbers MC760.It took a week of cussing, perserverance, and patience to finally get it freed up to turn.

Yes, it is an aftermarket water pump. With the exception of the first few, no Model T came factory equipped with a water pump, and certainly not a '26.

Here we go...:-)

I used to buy up those kind of pumps at flea markets, planning to use one of them them on an A block, after doing away with the original A pump. Ended up using a 12v electric pump from a school bus heater system. I probably could never find them now in my junk pile. T guys hate them, but you'll be finding that out...

Where is the intake manifold on the engine?

I'd sure like to own that head! :-)

The water pump is an aftermarket. I have about 4-5 of them the same style.

The head is a Frontenac "T" or "S"

About 1916/1920 there was discussion to connect the carburetor directly to the cylinder head, avoiding the intake runners. The fuel also being discussed was benzol. Thoughts were the fuel would be heated quicker and a passage of fuel for improved economy for a more direct route to the cylinders via internal passages to the intake valves. One example was a 1916 Hayes.

I didn't realize you needed to beat up the firewall on a '26-'27 to install a Frontenac. Don't remember doing that for a BB Rajo.
