14 L & 15 L water pump repair & restoration

Well my next project today was to remove my water pump off the side of my motor. Any tricks or secrets I need to know before I start to restore it? Started taking it apart and the shaft seems frozen, haven't really worked at it yet. The two cups on the top I presume are grease cups to lubricate the shaft or are they oil cups. If oil, should I use 600W or something else. If grease what type. The hole in the bottom doesn't look like is should be for grease as it's very small. When I took it apart kind of looks like grease, but then again it's been sitting there for a long long time. Let me know if anyone has taken these apart and if I need to watch out for anything.

You need to use water pump grease. It is solvent in water and won't congeal in your radiator tubes.

Mike, just go to the closest Durant place and buy a new pump. Complete pump for a 65 is only $4.60 US. Or Complete set of water pump wearing parts for the 65 is $1.70 US. Has that in the US aftermarkets.

Mikey! I have a line on a stash of NOS Durant water pumps still packed in cosmoline but I need some advance money to pick them up. Only $130.00 each. They are in Bengazitopia and will be ready by April 1, 2016.

Wow Don, what a bargain, but I like Norm's prices better. Besides if Bengazitopia is in Southern Texas, the parts are probably under water and hard to get to. Ha Ha
