Willy’s Knight water pump

Phil Dowe

I am restoring a sleeve valve Knight engine that came out of a Willy’s Falcon Knight. The water pump is pretty shot, as the “ cage” at the back of the pump is all decayed away, what with these old cars never having any sort of rust inhibiter. I have asked on other forums,where I thought there may still be one alive, but to no avail! I do not know if one Knight engine water pump will fit all other Knight engines, there may be some difference! Thanks for any replies in advance, and kind regards. Phil.
sand blast it and use body filler to form the shape roughly sand and repeat as needed till you get it right shape then cast a new one off it or maybe two.
