Look for engine parts for a 1931 Oldsmobile F31, specifically a water pump, does anyone know of a place that might carry that who knows their stuff?

If you have a car like that, you should subscribe the Hemmings Motor News. They are huge in the collector car niche and anyone who sells things for that car would certainly advertise there. Very cool magazine they publish too.

Re: Need an Opinion Sign In

As Nick said, Hemmings is a world class wonder for some impossible stuff. Used to subscribe B4 computer/web or anything and issues were like NYC phone books! Haven't perused their web site but saw a magazine still out there once recently.

1931? Granted a bit before my time but I would bet the pump was made to rebuild and seal yourself. If all else fails see if you can find any #s on bearings or seals that just might be able to cross over. If housing is the problem that would be another job to find or fix that. Stuff was made to fix not just toss. Right around then some didn't use water pumps at all just relied on convection,

Thanks for the advice! I'm still on the search, fixing it myself was gonna be the last option, I don't want to brake something that is irreversible. Happened to me once and I'll never just try to be a handy man with exploring all my options.

Try not to break anything but you'd be surprised that it probably could be fixed if you cracked it!

Car should be similar to this..........

Once a member and found it is still out there thru Hemmings Motor News, Bennington, VT.

You will find lots of help from this organization and local places that could fix your own or may have one done for swap. That or just get the rebuild parts and find a local place to you do that much for you. Any gaskets you can make. Gotta ask around at real even perhaps single store parts places if any exist near you to fix yours for this and other things you may need in the future. Some of these places web sites may fail or not be listed out there at all but they exist,
