(For non-rotary list members this is an inside joke)

 

Any of you guys that have been around for a few years with the Rotary groups, I'm thinking of one in particular, this will have you laughing you butt off... Toyota is going to be using electric water pumps!

Did some old guy who has never built, let alone fly, a rotary power aircraft tell you that? I have a mind to write him a letter.... oops, never mind... I was banished years ago for plugs-up heresy.

 

Let me give you a hand with these... :banana: :banana::banana: :banana: :banana:

A variable speed Electric Water Pump

may be 1000 times more reliable

than a Wax Pellet Thermostat that

sooner or later ALWAYS FAILS closed.

 

Secondary, it is possible to build a

Brushless permanent magnet motor

pump combination with no seals.

Well the real contentious issue here was it was "proven" (on another list)beyond any question that there is no way a 12v pump could move the water necessary to cool a 200 hp engine, EVEN THOUGH most of the aftermarket hot rod accessory companies offer such a product for hotrods and roadsters, apparently they do not drive their cars or use pixie dust and prayers to prevent overheating and never ever could imagine a street rod being stuck in stop and go traffic with a typically small hot rod radiator right? But then what do they know, or Toyota for that matter?

My own objection to the electric waterpump would be to ask which is most likely to fail, a belt (breakage, derail or slipping) or electrical system failure preventing the pump from working?

These guys build electric water pumps that actually do work for street use.

Use a magnetic coupling. Magnet is outside the fluid path and is motor driven. Pump impeller is ferrous core, and is inside the fluid path and not directly mechanically linked to the pump drive/magnet.
