Finally got the IP replaced. I took the cold start assembly from the original IP, as it wasn't leaking from the cold start assembly, replaced the larger "O" ring but did not remove the shaft as the "C" clip holding the cold start shaft broke on the one I took off the rebuilt.  The Quantum didn't want to start after I re-installed the IP. However, I had someone help me push it down a small hill & vola, it started & runs well. Spent most of the afternoon removing the radiator from my 1941 Ford for repair & probable re-coring, which was much harder than removing a VW diesel radiator.
I hope I have my Quantum's starting/running problems solved. Now it will be time to sort it's heating & air-conditioning issues. Although the fan works, the temperature control will only go half way towards the hot side. 
Got an add running in Hemmings for my "54 Hudson Hornet so it & the '41 Ford will have to get priority now.
