New water pump for Simon Polley’s Midget 1500 racer

After finding the engine bay covered in coolant after his last race Simon Polley thought he best get the engine looked at. With an initial fear of a head gasket issue Simon was pleased to hear that issue was a leak from the water pump and housing. A new pump and some gaskets and all is dry. Simon is racing his Midget 1500 in the CSCC Swinging Sixties race series.

“Just wanted to thank you and let you know that my Midget ran beautifully at Brands this week end. On the pace and no leaks! I won my class though have to say that this was ‘last man standing’ due to others crashing out and breaking down but as they say ‘to finish first, first you have to finish’ and given my recent engine problems I think I deserve an award!”

  1. Hi, Would Simon or any other Spridget driver be interested in a driver exchange with me and my Midget here in Australia?
    Escape the cold winter for the warmth down under and have a few races while you check out the place.
    In return, I get invited to Blighty and race your car.
    If this sounds good email me for more details.
    Cheers Peter Mohacsi, Bowral NSW. Australia or
