Met up with Ryan at the Tulare show and he fired it up for me. I am totally thrilled at the excellent job that he has done with it.

I really enjoyed the show although I understand it is smaller that in the past. Found some goodies. The wallet was empty and the car full about the same time.

It was great to see you there! It was a great show to get out and see everyone! I'm glad you like how the tractor turned out, hopefully I'll soon have all the remaining items fixed.

Had some time to work on the 20C before I was called into work this morning.. i previously had pulled and cleaned the tank to seal it with redkote, but was still having fuel issues, so I pulled the carb apart and found the low speed circuit had plugged up. Cleaned it up and installed a set of NOS Edison Splitdorf Plugs into it and let it run for awhile. Runs beautifully, just need to find time to do something with the radiator!




The plugs:


They were a real find! Nothing like having the "right stuff"

With the tractor running so well, I decided to try a 2nd round of Bars copper radiator stop leak. I ran it for 20 minutes and about ten minutes in, it stopped leaking! Couldn't believe it as some of those leaks were obviously visible holes! We'll see how long it'll last (probably until I drive it around again as that's what happened last time), but for now it looks promising...

I keep referring to this thread, I got my 1940 AG which has the same OOC Hercules motor fitted, all back together and running to try out the clutch replacement, which is working great now.
Now I have the water pump off and I am in the same boat as you were, worn shaft, and broken impeller etc.
Every time I go near my Cletrac I seem to keep finding something else to fix.
did you cast your brass replacement impeller or are the available to buy anywhere?

Thanks,

Zimmerman Oliver Cletrac in Pennsylvania has them. Can't remember the cost though. Good luck!
