Nice work there......I forgot the ol side bangers had twin water pumps.....LOL.
For a little nostalgia, I rebuilt a 1935 Willys 77 engine, and I painted it in the old Ford Grey.
I modified the oil pump so as to have an external spin on oil filter.

rather than convert the old guages to 12v from 6v its easier to go that route,i just dont like the chrome :roll: :)
