Default Hercules IXB5 Water Pump

Does anyone know where to send my Hercules IXB water pump assembly off to rebuild? I have it partially apart and am not familiar with the packing material that is broken...appears to be a ring of carbon that is held against the brass shaft bushing with a spring and cup. I have the manual but it is not too detailed or list part numbers. Thanks, Lynn

Okay, I'm going to have to be the guy that exposes himself here. Why can't you substitute it with something more easier to get hold of?

If you can get the packing out then go to http://www.mcmaster.com/# and see if they have something to match.

I sent a water pump off a Gibson tractor in for a rebuild through NAPA. This was quite a few years ago but maybe they still offer the service.

I think it s for an IXB 3, which is a front fan belt driven pump...this one is a side shaft that also drives the mag....Thanks for the report!

I just finished rebuilding the pump...got parts from Jerry at Hercano (nice people) had to machine the shaft down a few thousands and brazed and turned back to .750. Shaft has a tight spot in pump but I think it will lap in...haven't put in back in yet...trying to figure the BTC timing...The Manual leaves a lot to be desired. Hope it doesn't leak to bad! Sure beats watching TV!
