I saw your post on the TDC forum and I found out this was the one you bought from Rob. I saw this car when I came to collect some early 1850 instruments from him. I'm glad it is going to be put back on the road and is a good base for a rolling restoration.

Is that the long steel pipe that comes out of the back of the water pump and under the manifolds? Fit a stainless pipe and have done with it. Literally fit-and-forget. A complete hose set will give you peace of mind and I'm sure they will all need replacing.
