Amos are getting rid of all their spares, they will be sold as bulk on eBay apparently.
Sadly they didn't have anything to suit.
Cup washers were 8 something plus VAT.... I didn't buy any....

Cheers, Steve

Well I was offered some spares via Stationary Engine Parts but I was offered a 2nd pump (cheaper than the NOS spares ) though I appreciate SEP for looking for them.

This one is a bit different being an AF or boiler feed pump.

The original condition will be more in-keeping with the engine it's going to go with.

RPM is a higher but the GPM is lower, 60GPH rather than 180 of the other pump.

It came apart easy considering how much of the nuts were wasted away. Internals were in the same state.

But cleaned up ok.

Being a higher pressure pump the piston is a bit different, not come across this type before...

I still can't get the valve chest off of this on either.... as there is quite a bit of crud down there.

I'm thinking I'm going to switch the base and bearings from the other pump to this on and cut my losses on that pump.

Cheers, Steve

The piston on the AF pumps should just have an 'O' ring and no cup washers.

Pete.

Little play today.

The crank wasn't too good on the new "spare" so I switched the back end and bearing carriers, so have a frankenpump atm...

On the plus side the valve chest came off!

IMG_20171013_123856 by Stephen Williams, on Flickr

One valve is freed off but the other is soaking with plusgas.

The old pipes broke straight off, the delivery side came out easy.

IMG_20171013_121215 by Stephen Williams, on Flickr

But stupid me instead of just attaching a bit of extend pipe to the inlet pipe the 1st one went so well I thought the sucking side would be easy...sadly it's being a PITA!

Slowly slowly.

Cheers, Steve

So managed to get the last valve free!

IMG_20171013_162602 by Stephen Williams, on Flickr

And a bit of perseverance the remains of the old pipe is out! So once I get a bit of gasket material I'll make up some new.

Will see if I can remove the "new" paint as it's been slapped on it should come off pretty easy.
