Worked on a friend's 1913 Roadster this weekend. Imagine my surprise when I spotted this accessory made in Kansas City - just like me, haha. He purchased the pump some years ago on the internet and the seller asked how he liked it. My friend's English skills aren't up to snuff so he didn't answer back, and now he doesn't remember who the seller was.
If you sold this pump, complete with extra "Camco Kansas City, Mo. USA" stickers to someone in Spain, he likes the pump and is really happy with it.
Just for the record, I'm not a water pump user. I just saw the dang thing under the hood, saw my home town printed on it and it caught my fancy
Here's a copy of the original brochure from our collection.
No necesitamos ningun apestosa bomba de agua!
Ich habe einen kranken Kopf but I really wanted to say that's a unique pump! Ya, I gotta sick head. :-)
And no, in regular service, a pump is not necessary. :-)
Give it a little grease. :-)
Eric, that's really cool about the Kansas City, MO connection. :-) I was happy to have an odd running board luggage rack built in St Paul, MN and that's two hours plus away... :-)
How's your project coming along?
Steve, estoy totalmente de acuerdo contigo!
Duey, my project is pending four connecting rods. As soon as the engine is together and running properly I will continue with bolting the body down, installing the interior, wiring and fenders. After nine years with the car down I'm getting a little anxious now!
Jay, thanks for the literature. I'll send a copy of it to the water p*#ż owner. =D
