Thanks Bob;
I just ordered both a pump and a 6 blade fan from AH Spares in the UK. I researched Victoria British, Moss, the Nocks and a few others. Pricing and freight was all over the board but I was chasing inventory on hand and quality rather than costs so the Brits won the battle in this instance.
Hope they last as long as the originals  !!!

Last I checked, the only water pumps available from the 'usual suspects' are County brand.  County 'quality' is generally suspect, and I had 2 pumps fail out of the box (broken shafts).  Michael Salter used to supply rebuild kits and/or did rebuilds himself; his work is excellent (http://www.netbug.net/blogmichael/?page_id=54).

I bought one of the original 'Texas Cooler' fans back when they were offered by the Texas club; it's performed well for many years.  Can't speak for the new ones; although Denis Welch has similar and they are reputable.



The bearings on my water pump finally gave out so I am in the market for one and also think it is time to upgrade from the 2 piece four bladed fan that was on it.
The pump has the nut on the shaft for the pulley but unless the pulley is keyed on it looks more like it is pressed on although I do have a bit of motion of the pulley on the shaft. It seems most new pumps (Moss for example) have the pulleys now pressed on so I assume that is the preferred solution for replacement.
Re the fan I was looking at a six blade but saw no fans in the Moss catalog (NA?) as they look for a solution I recall to rivets popping on the metal ones and not sure re the plastic blade solution.
Looking for any feed back on obtaining a new water pump and an upgraded fan blade.
Thanks !
