Vintage Diesel & Glow parts needed
 
Would there be any interest in starting a thread for parts required for old diesels etc.? A thread that could stay here on vintage & old timers & not be shifted to the classifieds? No blatent FOR SALE items, dealers etc. But a list of requirements from genuine enthusiasts?
Perhaps accompanied by a pic of the broken part? I have lots of stuff but I'm unsure of what engine the parts are for.

Cheers
Simon

I need a Webra 2.5R rotor.

Well I think its a good idea Simon - I've been thinking about just such a thing for years now. eBay is really only for selling stuff, although one guy was trying to buy here just recently (I mentioned it in this thread). Collectors really need a specialized "Wanted, Swap" type thread and I think it would fill a great need. BOB

I would certainly support a "wanted" sticky.

...and I'm still looking for DC Dart crankshaft and backplate.

Good idea.

I would like two original spraybars and needles for Webra Rekords please.
The red head one from the mid '50s with both radial and beam mounts.

They both go well on what I have in them, but original would be lovely.

Simon,
I would support a need for For Sale / Wanted here in the
Vintage & Oldtimers section.........but doubt that Mr. Bourke would
go for it, but we could try. ..:)

This Gent has soooooooo much stuff, contact him and get on his email
list and you will get one each month with all he has.
JUST ASK to be put on his email list

Couple of bits here gathering dust. Tank I understand is from an old ME Snipe diesel and needle could be from an old OS Pet glow motor. Allen

This thread is a great idea

Hi,
Starting off with a mystery part...:)
(I've previously posted this, so far with no result, but I feel it kind of belongs in here...)

This little propdriver came to me in a bag of various (mostly British) engine bits.
It does show similarities to an ED Baby propdriver, although this one is a tad larger (still small, though).

Anyone who recognises/needs it...? :confused:


:)

I dont there should be anything FOR SALE. Just a wanted list operated on a good will basis.

#10 Warren B Jan 20, 2012 04:48 PM

Agreed, for sale is innapropriate, but "wanted" certainly and "available" maybe.

#11 gossie Jan 20, 2012 07:49 PM

Another thing WANTED to add to my list is the brass cutout arm from either the ED Mk2 or ED Competition Special.............PLEASE.

#12 Ian Easton Jan 21, 2012 06:25 PM

I need a NVA for my Ohlsson 60.

Hello together

I am looking for a cylinder head for my ED RACER MK I. :(

Best regards from Germany.

Dieter

#14 Warren B Jan 22, 2012 09:25 PM

I think I have a spare Racer head, I'll check tonight.

#15 Gluehand Jan 23, 2012 03:27 PM

Various Frog parts wanted:
Backplate for Frog 50.
Even other Frog 50 parts are of interest...
Also wanted, a needle valve for Frog 250 (the one with the long "coil")...even incomplete is of interest. I also miss the tinplate "hook" for the "coil".....

-------------------------------------------------------------------

"Available": ( I dug up a few bits...)
WAF-1 crankcase (used)
WAF-1 cyl.jacket (used)
McCoy .049 spraybar (NOS)
Webra Record RC crankcase, including the rc-carb (NOS) (60's model)
G-Mark .06 (or .12) rc-carb, complete (NOS)
