Phillip, like Jim I have sent emails since purchasing my first CV around 7 years ago and not once had a reply.

The address is a small terraced cottage with no garden - it doesn't seem likely to be the base for industrial manufacturing. Has anybody tried the phone number; emails change..?

He was very hard to got hold of years ago, I don't know about now.
I think he owns the CV name and what was left of the stock, I had some rings off him for my CV, not that I really needed them and it was his last two sets he had for the 8hp CV, something like 6 each set I think it was.

Chris is still about, but he's rubbish at answering calls or emails.

I'll try and give him a prompt.

Best and probably the only place to meet up with Chris Gallow is GDSF. He's always there fixing something in the SE section, I know not helpful in the short term but for future.

Just remembered Chris gave me a new email address couple of years ago, will look in the caravan, he explained there was an error on the published one, if I remember the difference wasn't that much. Possibly this is the reason he doesn't answer cos he doesn't get them

The reason I asked is because I have a quantity of CV AN4 parts (new old stock) and I thought he might be interested in acquiring them. Clearly he doesn't seem very active and maybe not much use as a parts source for enthusiasts restoring CV engines.

Phillip, I have had no luck of late either when contacting him about a MA1 air cooled twin I've been working on. Its a pity as the site lists a few spares that would have helped with the rebuild !
