Water pump gaskets

I got some gasket material to make the water pump gaskets the other night.

 

Test fit.


 After putting some form-a-gasket sealant on both sides, the nuts were tightened.


The top gaskets were installed as well.


We put a gallon of gas in the tank to check the lines for leaks.  Brian pumped the wobble pump.....


I removed the fuel line right at the carburetor and sure enough,  fuel flowed freely.


Most of all, the new lines did not leak!

Enough for one night.  Enjoy

Brian
