It is a real water pump.  Here is an excerpt:
 
"Dies were developed for stamping out the front cover, oil pan and rockers. The pistons and water pump housing are cast aluminum, and the valve covers are going to be investment cast.

Since this engine is a runner, there is spark ignition, a pressurized oil system and a cooling system just like its big brother
Right now the engine has been completed to the point that it will run for brief periods of time. However, several things have yet to be finished including the water pump/radiator, valve covers and carburator to make this a full time running engine."

Here is a pic.  For some odd reason, when I tried putting this pic into my last post, it showed up at the top of the page!

I can't believe it actually runs.  I mean, getting the air fuel misture right...all sorts of other issues. 
I posted this elsewhere, but another really talented guy.  He made it from another model and adapted it so it became a 68 Newport!

Really, Putting it into a scale car would have to be the pinnacle.
 
If these were commercially available at a not too exorbitant cost, I would think about getting one.

Here in AZ, the gas prices are $1.65 US gallon or $2.01 CAN per gallon or $0.43 US per liter or $0.53 CAN per liter.
 
Hope that makes sense.  I wasn't sure what the unit of measure to go with as we have people from both sides of the border in this.
 
Do we have any people from Mexico?  I thought many big Chryslers made it down there.

I wasn't sure where to post this.
 
I can't believe the time, trouble and expertise that went into producing this!!

I mean look at the work on the water pump housing.  I can't believe he was able to work out the cams, spings, valves etc!  And then how do you deal with the spark plugs??

I love Werner Klemperer!  I think he died recently.

you know, the only time people consistently use the word "bludgeon" is when describing Bob Crane's murder!

Tech- - Engine / Electric Fans on 440
« on: December 09, 2008, 05:50:37 PM »
so this is what Derale has suggested:
 
If your Thermostat setting is 190, set on efan to 190 and the other to 195.  They told me you don't want to set it so that both fans turn on at the same time.  The in rush current is really high.  More than the rated 50 amps total draw.
 
I'm going to install this and let you guys know how it turns out..

I think my thermostat is a 180 or 190.
 
Should the set point of the fan thermostat be less than the setpoint of the collant stat?  Wouldn't that mean the fans will be pretty much on all the time?
 
I was thiking the fans would need to turn on at a temp higher than coolant stat.  In this case, the coolant will flow if it exceeds 180, if the coolant flowing through the radiator is insufficient to bring lower the temp to wehere the stat closes, then the fans turn on for added cooling.  Am I off base with this?
 
Thanks for your help!

That is amazing!!
 
So, I don't know if anyone knows, but Vick Ferrari was the alter ego of Latka Gravas (Andy Kaufman's character), the mechanic on Taxi.


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I thought that when I saw the name Simca, it was a reference to Latka's Taxi girlfreind, Simka!
