1930 30U Water Pump Oiler?
« on: August 03, 2018, 09:09:27 PM »
Hello,
   What does the rear oiler on a factory 1930 30U water pump look like?  According the the owner's manual, the water pump should have an open oil hole at the front an a oil cup on the rear.  Is it a small spring-door cup, does it have a bend or angle to it?  Is it a larger cup?  Not sure.  My car had a 4" long tube screwed in with a zerk fitting for grease at the end.  The hole is not vertical, it comes out at maybe a 15-20 degree angle, so thought I'd ask the experts what is correct for the car.  Thanks!

-Chris

Thank you kindly for the response, but I need to know what the original oil cup looked like.  It originally had an oil cup, not a grease fitting.  Any other owners have a response?  Thanks again.
