The Willys' Water Pump
January 10, 2004

1966 issue Water Pump eats itself ...





Broken collar that holds the impeller on it's shaft.



10 bolts hold the pump on. Four broke
off in the aluminum housing.



Radiator removed, steel bolts were drilled
out and the aluminum housing retapped.



The new pump's mounting holes had to
be "tweaked" to line up properly.

Surfaces were cleaned and the pump was bolted up. Radiator and hoses were reinstalled and "secured". Brackets and fan were bolted up and belts were adjusted and tighened. Scrounged up some anti-freeze and fired the Willy's up!
