Hello,

I have a water pump from a mid-30s Coventry Climax motor built by Triumph (1232cc, 10.80 hp). This engine is in my 1937 Morgan. Is anyone aware of a specialist who can refurbish this water pump or sources for a replacement? Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Hi Jerome,I have similar problems with my Prewar motor,if you are not to fussy about originality fitting an electric water pump is a great replacement.Less power drag,more effective circulation and will run after turning off motor and cooling block evenly. Hope this is of some help.

Thanks John, I've reinstalled the original in my Morgan (photo attached) after refurbishing the pump and will be testing it next weekend. If this doesn't work I will go the electric pump route. Can you tell me which model you are using? and anything I should consider when installing? Thanks, Jerry

Hi Jerry,I hope the pump works,it's always better to keep the original.I used a Craig-Davies pump and controller.It works in combination with an electric fan.Size does not seem to matter according to what I have found from my experience.It means the car is running at optimum temp all the time.
Good luck with it,the car looks great!

I have a similar water pump on my 1936 Triumph Gloria SX. I got a replacement from a batch made in NZ Check with Don Broome at frdbroome@paradise.net.nz
These pumps are also available through the Pre1940 Triumph Owners Club in the UK. Beautiful Morgan. Here's my Triumph.

Much agree that using original type pump preferred. Never throw it out, someone can fix it. It can be less costly if you can find a used electric pump, and as long as no severe modifications needed pretty easy to figure out
