Hey Harry

I went with a carter because that is what the manual says should be on the truck.

As a sidenote does anyone have experience rebuilding the waterpump?

Hey Bruce

I am not sure, I see that advertised on a few sites that sell the old stuff but the Manual says 387-S so...

I attached the picture from the manual not sure if you tell much from it.

It's a Carter W1 you're after, they were used on CMP Chevs and most of the civilian 216s in the late 1930's. There are a bunch of them out there with a 'climate control' (basically and automatic choke) that are post war commercial Chev but would do in a pinch.

I did see those pricy rebuilds on e-bay. I wonder if that's because there aren't any rebuild kits left?

Default Carb

So..... I managed to find a carb on Ebay out of Winterpeg, he wanted 11.99 USD for it so I bought it, a rebuild kit is around 100 bucks, I am hopimg that after a clanup and rebuild that I will have a decent working carb for a heck of a lot less than 500.

Now I need to make a puller to get the pulley off my water pump.

Thank you for all the info and the email (Harry).

Gary

I think you will find the pulley spot welded on to the water pump, be careful.

Hey Harry

I have checked the pump and it does not appear to be welded, at least on the outside of the pulley, I would assume that that is where it would be welded if it was. The pulley would go on last and then get welded correct?

We did try using a puller that uses 2 of the four holes and added heat but it would not budge, I am going to make a puller that has 4 holes like the manual shows.

searching online so far water pumps with a core charge are like 350 US so lets see if I can get this one apart lol.

Hi Gary....long time no talk. Anyway, if this is of any use to you for your carbureter "rebuild", your more than welcome to have it. I had it for a while and I don't know if it is for your carb. Maybe some of the guys can comment. I can mail it to you.
Good luck.....Robert

Gary, you will probably need to use a shop press to press the shaft out of the pulley. As for the price. Check eBay. There are a lot of the pumps listed there for very reasonable prices.

Parts list C15A-04 lists the Carter 387, followed by W1-518S, then W1-518SA all as first type carburetor. Then, as second type carburetor, the W1-589s is listed. The difference between first and second type is given as the second type is dustproof. Different parts packages were provided for servicing each of the carburetors.

Send your carb to The Carb Guys in Oshawa for rebuild.
Quality old time service at reasonable prices.

Hey All

Robert: Are you freakin cereal? Heck ya I will gladly accept that manual, if you need my addy just PM me and I will send it.

Jordan: I think you are right on the money as nothing else is working right now.

Grant: Thank you for that info every tidbit helps.

Chris: I have 3 engines and not one carb so I have to buy one, I got lucky (I hope) and found one on Ebay for 40 bucks after shipping, they had an issue with the processing system so it has been expedited so hopefully it will be here soon and I will let you all know what kind of shape it is in.

I love this site and community, everyone here is willing to help and offer what parts they have. If I have not said it before you guys rock and Thank you for your help, info, and for those that served, your service.

Gary

Default Carbureter Clarification.....

Hi Gary: Just to clarify, the photo is NOT of a manual, but a package of assorted gaskets which Grant has clarified. (Thanks). If you decide to rebuild, send me your address and I'll mail then to you. I'll waive the $1.07 list price!!
I did check into rebuilding down this neck of the woods and I was quoted $430.00 to $440.00 for a Carter W1. I used this firm years ago and was very satisfied. Another option that occurred to me today was a firm I have used recently (C8A return brake spring). They are located in Missouri USA and attached is a copy of their carb list. Your call, but you've had a lot of good input. Good luck......Robert

PS: WTH is "freakin cereal" ?????

Hey Robert

Sorry, the first pic looked like a manual so I got confused lol. And "freakin cereal" is my grandchildrens way of saying serious lol ie: are you friggin serious. When I thought that was a manual I got a little excited and put that in instead of the proper spelling lmao...sorry.

Gary
