The fresh water pump is restored and mounted on the engine. The pumps original bearing was a non shielded one. Replaced it with a sealed one. Looked like oil could migrate and leak out the pump drain. I added a lip seal to keep this from happening. The cat o ring is the perfect size for the flange that seals the pump to the block.

Does anyone have the original cap for the 1-71 radiator? Its fits inside the filler neck and is for a non pressurized system. I could use the dimensions, OD, ID and distance between the tabs. Found some similar tractor caps online that i could modify to work. Thanks ALClick image for larger version

If you can wait a couple of days I have a hard copy of the Stant catalogue that lists in pictures/dimensions all the possible caps and it has not failed me yet. So if you can post dimensions on Sat I can look it up, I'd bet that it was a standard size.

Cheers

I had no luck coming up with a replacement, if I remember, there is one in Steiner Tractor that might work.

Sorry for delay, looks like the closest your going to get is the Tractor fuel tank style with the chrome rounded cap - 10623

Cheers

I am making great progress on my radiator core. As mentioned in previous posts, There was no radiator shop in Hawaii that could do the job or help me. I contacted CG & J in Gadspen AL. They made me a core to the specs and measurements i gave them. They did a remarkable job at a very reasonable cost. Going to practice my tinning and soldering skills before i attach my tanks.

Need some input PRO or CON on painting a radiator. I soldered on the tanks and tested it to 7 psi. It looks good now being made of brass and copper. However it is hidden in a cast iron shell and you cant see it. Living on an island in the middle of the Pacific it`s a very salty environment. In a couple months it will start turning green. Eastwood makes a heat aerosol radiator paint. AL

Go ahead and paint it. Stave off corrosion.

i've had good luck with hi-heat stove paint from ace hrdwr. my 13000 core is mostly hid too. btw i didn't do any specific research other than noting how well it held up on my wood burner. good luck.

Any radiator should be flat black, it helps them "radiate" better...

I have an old report on file that discusses paint colour for best radiation on cast iron radiators and Terra Cotta was the best! Now that would be a show stopper a Terra Cotta painted 1-71.

Cheers

Customer sent me photos from 33 years ago of replacing a cylinder block and crank in a 8v-53 marine engine in his boat. Check out the lifting rigs. It`s a wonder that i am still alive. I have greatly improved my rigging and housekeeping skills. AL .Click image for larger version

Hah! That's a "git 'er done" moment for sure.

I had a leather bill like that too.. just about 10 years earlier.

Working on marine engines can be a lot like yoga. Instead of Hatha Yoga, it's "Greasy Yoga." You have to be a weightlifting contortionist.

I have two memorable moments in my short marine engineering career:

Dismantling and bringing the majority of a 6-110 in pieces up two decks out of the generator room using chain falls. Going down was easier.

The other was being in a crew rebuilding a 1,200 hp Atlas Imperial in a 100 foot tug. Literally had to torch a good part of the superstructure off and set it on the pier using a 12 ton crane, then tearing the engine down and lifting those pieces into specially prepared crates for shipping to a machining facility in Norfolk.
