  • 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.

          Yes, there are lots on ebay. New, old, clean, dirty. You name it. Look for Desert Water Bag. Also Google will lead you to new ones.

            I didn’t catch the date on the OP - or recognize the thread - until I saw the comment from Bill Williamson. It was a good thing to have his wit and wisdom unexpectedly pop up like that. Brought a smile to my face.

                Water pump impellers
                by Dutch_AJ
                Hi all,

                I'm looking around for an extra spare water pump to do some testing with (water leakage etc). When I look on ebay I see some water pumps with different impellers and I'm just curious. The a d says it's for a Model A. Are you guys familiar with these pumps/ impellers? They also don't have a zinc or brass nut. Is this some sort of aftermarket piece?

                ...

                Is the Model B water longer than the Model A water pump?

                How many use rain-x how does it work in conjunction with your wipers also does it help wiper blades keep from squeaking?

                Water Pumps

                What is up with new water pumps? The flange on the pumps is tight enough in the Head bore that something needs to be relieved. I don't know if its the head or the water pump. I have a couple new heads, and both fit the same. I haven't measured either yet, but will when I get time. I also have 2 new pumps laying around and they both are tight. I have an old stock head here at my shop and I will measure...

                Water Pump
                by Fixitphil
                Has anyone ever seen a water pump like the one pictured? I was told that it came from Montgomery Wards?
                Is the grease fitting real or phony?
                Also, can anyone tell me about a "Bulldog" (rebuilt) Model A engine. Supposedly rebuilt in Turlock, CA.
                Thanks,
                Phil

                I was removing my old water pump and fan the other day. Can anyone identify this type of water pump? It doesn’t look like a standard Ford Model A water pump....

                Types of Water Pumps
                by Steve Plucker
                The RG's state that there were three types of Water Pumps used on the Model A/AA Ford.

                Of the three, how many different variations of the front, or exposed area, are there where it bolts onto the cylinder head, if there are any at all?
