    I've never seen the car myself. It's in Florida and I'm in Rhode Island, at the other end of the East Coast, about 1,200 miles away. But, if you go to the AACA (Antique Automobile Club of America)...

    I finished the parts today...these are water pump shafts for a 1917 White "4-cylinder - 16 valve" motor. White only built about 140 of them and there are only 4 currently known - though I'd say there...
