water pump lubrication

Post by autoluke » Thu Jun 19, 2014 9:01 am

I can not locate a lubrication fitting on my 640 straight eight. Is the water pump bearing self lubricated,or am I overlooking something ?

Hello Luke

I am not sure about the specifics of the 640. I have a 533 and that has a grease nipple on a separate fan bearing in front of the water pump and I thought there was one on the pump gland as well (requiring water pump grease of course). I will have a look tonight and get back to you.
