  • Flax Water Bags for your Model A

    I thought someone was wanting one of these water bags recently.
    Is Colorado a foreign country?
    The bag says "Imported" and "Made in Colorado".

    Perhaps the flax is imported.

      I think Tom knew that and was being humorous.

        My dad had one of these old water bags when I was in grade school, and he hung it on the front of his 54 Ford Country Squire when we went on a long trip.

        That was the only time I recall seeing that bag, and I don't know what happened to it.

          Tom,
          Once saw a street person with one on his back & a plastic hose coming out of the lid. His back was wet from the "normal" bag seepage. It was HOT & he made booties for his Dog, using SILVER Duct Tape!! (NICE MAN!)

        Here's another water bag that ends in a couple hours. It looks nice with bright colors.

          Short Water Pump

          Anybody know what this water pump could be for? I thought maybe an overhead conversion but I can't find any that use a pump like this.

          What Maintenance on Leakless Water Pumps?
          by 29er
          Since I've got to install a new head gasket and will have the water pump off anyway, is there any maintenance to be done on leakless water pumps? This water pump has about 5,000 miles on it and has functioned without problems. As far as I know, all the bearings are sealed, and other than cleaning it and adding a new gasket there's not much to do, right? How many miles have you guys gotten out of leakless...

          fan blades water pumps
          by Jim Mason
          How many fan blade designs were used originally on the Model A? How can they be told apart. What months and years were they used? What was the finish?
          How many water pump designs? Any specs that need to be met? Finishes?
          Any other details?

          One method to clean a water jacket
          by tbirdtbird
          The pix are self explanatory. Be very careful working with lye, keep it off your skin and eyes. I bolt the adapter I made to the inlet with a copper gasket. I carefully fill the water jacket to about an inch from the top with a strong lye solution. The lye gives off lots of heat when mixed, use cold water and mix it up little by little. Let it sit in the block for a week. The head is off, obviously....

          Thermosyphon cooling system
          by 01A
          I have read that the Model A has a Thermosyphon cooling system, even though it does have a water pump. I read where the clearance allows water to pass the water pump impeller if the pump were not operational. So if you had a fan belt break or some other issue that you had to run the car without the water pump operational, still mounted on the motor but not spinning, would the thermosyphon action work...
