    Looks similar to KSE pump readily available but high bucks. Should be plenty available used and easy to rebuild if necessary.

    Looks like a common

    It's a Lehman front cover and crankdriven waterpump. They show up on eBay from time to time. I don't know the vintage of them but imagine 60's/70's. Company still in business that has the drives for cam and crank and will rebuild them. I had mine rebuilt. Couple hundred bucks. PM me if you want some more info. Happy to help out. May have another laying around.

    Thank you blackout, I'll be using a stock belt-driven pump on my replica. I just think it looks really neat and "racey".

    Jump on in there. Hardest part was finding the proper lower hose. I think I bought 5 from Napa till I found the right one that fit. They are infinitely indexable and work proper.

    Old post . . . IMO this is the real week end, week night racer. Open trailer, wooden ramps, 4 spare tires, drum of alky, open pickup truck, and probably a tool box. No side-by-side pusher, and no hauler with 10 spares of everything....
     
  9. additions to history of Beal/Traylor/Schindler/Thomson saga.
    thanks to duke cook who got me started on this. after Stearly car was sold to a darrell woodbury of union city,
    ohio. spoke to son gary, yes, his father purchased the x beal car about 1961, not sure.
    bobby marvin had car thru a lease or other deal with his father. car was #76, B & J spl.
    gave up ride to go with wergland.
    duke also says history of car was known. put cage on car & chev engine.
    besides duke's info, Indiana Open Wheel was good source.
    learned dick debolt, dick pratt, audie swartz, mike vandermass, & brent whited were drivers at one time or
    another. debolt verif by dau.
    anderson speedway gave some results.
    1961 dick pratt woodbury #20 std 3rd fin 19th led 153 of 226 laps.
    1966 audie swartz no info
    1983 mike vandermaas

    There was a post of this car on the Facebook sprint car page about 3 to 4 years ago. My memory says it was a picture taken at Tampa, mid sixties, at the IMCA winter event, and it had an extension from the top of the roll bar down to the rear nerf/push bar. It was clearly the same car as the B&J Special, painted red. Good to see you on here, I still have the photos and poster you sent, hidden away at the moment due to a move across town. Many Thanks, hope the car turns up some day.

    That is the third version. First it was the JH Rose #27 car driven by Don Davis 1962. Then sold to Walt Beletsky for the 1963 season #7, Don Branson one of the drivers. This is the 1964 livery as the Woodie. Bob Marshman the driver at the start of the season.The car was in a horrible crash at New Bremen, where Jim Maguire lost his arm.

    Seeing the Jet roadster in the Pocono photos brings to mind a thought. Does anyone know where the cars from Don Smith's collection ended up after the auction ?

    Jud Phillips between O'connor and Thomson. Al Herman on the far right.

    Might be Wayne Doerstler in the DA shirt.
