This is for the '73 1850 auto project, before I get a refurb one from HRS, anyone have one they want to move on?

Do you mean the one with the six small vanes? If so are you certain as the later 6v are more efficient... The two types have different covers; do you know what you have fitted?

Fair point Alun, I'd best not assume anything about this car and physically check what's been installed first, BRB.

6 blade as it turns out, I've seen ones with a 2 cast on them but this has ST1, correct early 1850 type I'd guess.

Idly wondering about rebuilding it now but here goes for the side view.

Yes, that's an early 6v; it's the depth of the spigot between blades and bolt head that tells you.

Brian Kitley always advocated keeping water pumps, jackshafts and dizzy drives as a used matched set as they will have worn sympathetically with each other.

The gears on that look good, so, yes, I'd rebuild it.

I had my last repair kits from www.socspares.co.uk :buying two worked out about £15-16 each delivered, 2/3 of HRS price and just as good quality.

Ah, thanks Alun, so the vanes are a bit taller on the later 6 valve, useful to know and I agree with keeping matched gear sets as logical. I've disassembled it and will post something in the right place for opinion on rebuilding it.
