List seems dead. This is a test.

The list has been very quiet so I thought I would try it.

I will be replacing the water pump on my 1950 F-1 and I'm worried about
the bolt inside the water pump.

Anyone have any experience? Will it be rusted and hard to remove or
will I be pleasantly surprised? If difficult, should I use an impact
wrench with the air pressure turned way down? Or?????????

Thanks, Andy

Hi Ken: 60 and older list lives. Radical drop from 79 and down, though.
As more people are aware of it, I am sure it will grow rapidly. Probably
will have to be reminded of
to me on demand the 79 and down list? Do I list it as a favorite? Thanks,
Lee ( I can build a hell of a flathead engine, , but am computer

Chances are it will be rusted. You can hope the bolt head is completely
rusted off, and that will solve your problem. Look at the bolt head first and
see which will fit better, either a 12 point or a 6 point socket and try that
very slowly. I would not use something that might spin the head off. Your
last resort, and probably the method you will use, is to drill hole in the
remaining bolt and use a good easy out bit to remove the remaining bolt
peice. The peice of the bolt that is remaining in the engine will be hard and
the easy out will grab. I also suggest that you retap the old bolt holes and
use a non harding gasket sealer when you reinstall the new water pump. Let me
know if this works.
