4LW water pump lubrication

Featured Posts

Old manual (42.4) " once a week, two or three turns of the greaser". Modern Gardner-enthusuiast manual " not more than one grease cup full per 4,800 hours!!!!! Has the water pump changed since the old days?

Simple answer is yes in the carbon bushes  have evolved over time and now you can buy a modern ceramic bearing which is totally different.

Hmm. I got my replacement water pump from Gardner's shortly

before they closed down. So I assume it may have a ceramic  bearing,. But how would I know for sure?

If your has a greasers or grease nipple it is an earlier type and needs greasing, if its a later type with a carbon ceramic seal it will not have a grease point. If a later seal is retrofitted to a earlier pump housing the grease point is normally blanked off.

It has a grease cup that apparently only needs a slight turn once in a blue moon!
