    Default R8/10 water pump base castings now available but without spigot for carby heater hose

    There was a post recently which I can't find, regarding newly available water pump bases. I have dug out mine, and found, as the post suggested, that the new castings do not have the spigot for the small rubber hose that takes coolant that warms the carburettor base and prevents icing.

    Here are a few photos of how to fix the problem. It's easy. Go to Repco and buy a brass spigot, 3/8", straight with a 1/8" BSP thread. Yes folk, we went metric in 1970. I really wonder sometimes.....

    Go to Toolmart or equivalent and buy a 1/8" BSP tap and then follow the photos, that is drill and tap the casting and screw in the spigot with some sealant. Carry 3/8" reinforced rubber hose so you can fix things on the road if you need to.

    Cheers

    Nice easy conversion there John.

    I have done that trick when needing extra vacuum take offs in the manifold.
