Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: WATER PUMP REPLACEMENT?
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Paul Sherman Tacoma WA on Saturday, September 23, 2017 - 07:11 pm:

I have a 1919 motor that I am getting ready to install in my 1923 Touring. I have removed the water pump and will replace it with a tube. But I am not sure what the fitting is called that bolts to the block where the water pump was connected. Is it an inlet or an outlet? I do not remember which way the water should flow in a T. I see one on e-bay but it says it is for a '26-'27. Are they different from a 1919?
Thank you-Paul in Tacoma

It's an inlet and it's the same on '26/'27 too.

Hot water out of the engine up top, cool water from radiator into the engine through the bottom.

The pieces you need:

or this one

and Cylinder water lower inlet connection, cast iron. Bolts to side of engine.

And the bolts to mount it with

And the gasket for the water inlet.

That should do the trick...also have you recently either had you radiator checked, flushed, recored or boiled out?
Usually when a water pump is used, it's a sign of "high blood pressure" (over boiling), which typically is a problem with the radiator.

You might possibly need two correct bolts. Some of the water pumps used a different length than the standard Ford length. After you acquire the inlet connection, then take a look at it and determine the length of bolt you will need.

Thank you. I am going with new.

The Inlet has a thicker flange than most pumps, so you will need longer bolts.

Paul, I just replaced both flanges as I stripped the water pump out of my '27 this spring. When I get home from work and can check my notes, I can relay the bolt sizes I used for the new flanges.

Okay Paul on my '27 both flanges are bolted on with 7/16-14 bolts. On the inlet flange which is the 90 degree flange on the side of the engine block I used bolts of 1 and 3/4 inches in length. For the outlet flange on the front top of the engine block I used bolts 1 inch in length. Hope this helps.
