Sorry, Chris, that was a long time ago and I didn't read back.

Hi Chris,

I have finally got down to the shed. I have (at least) 3 water pump housings there complete with top radiator hose connections, but all of them are the later version with no space for drilling and tapping.

However - my PI is a 1971 car and it does have the blank bit which could be drilled/tapped. I could swap it over for one of the plain ones I have as I haven't had any thoughts about modifying it. I won't be able to swap them over for a while though as I'm going to be away from next week until the end of March - and I'm busy until next week!

What sort of timescales are you looking for? Would early April be OK? If so, we can PM re timescales/costs etc.

Cheers,
Mike.

Mike,

Thanks for getting back to me. In the meantime, I have sourced one (for £10) off eBay. It needs drilling and tapping which I’ll document here.

Hi Chris,

No problem. I'm glad you're getting it sorted. That's one less job for me then!

Cheers,
Mike.
