(Worn out) Water pump

Waterpump 101

Well i have a lot of work to do...

Extreme rusty inside!

The bearing of the waterpump is to far gone even to think about reusing it. There was also a crack in the pump part with the small blades...

Worn out bearing & dry seal

After finding this movie on youtube i wanted to adapt my spitfire to the easy to use BS34 carb set.
No more worn out SU2 carb's to think about but a clean sheet to begin with.

47€ delivery incl no import taxes

SU2 : 32mm stock inlet carbs
BS34: 34mm inlet so i could gain some power ... 

Nice covered cable routing system

Vacuum ports

Nice kit for the spitfire 1300
