Reggy, your needle appears to be a Type 4 which was mainly fitted to Veco 19's circa early 1970's (I'm getting all this info from the A.M.E.E. incidentally). Not to worry - I'll find one somewhere. Thanks for looking ! BOB

OK in any case it is free to have if you need it, that goes for all those needles

That looks like a pretty good job on making your own needle there Lupen1.
Nice job.

I had made this needle valve for a 1947 Drone engine a while back.





The best part was that it worked too. I soldered on a homemade extension from some other needle valve.

A few AM parts unearthed, looking for a home...

1. An exhaust collector/silencer, suitable AM25 MkI (probably also MkII with a slight filing excercise...)
I don't know whether this is an aftermarket part, or original...?

2. An AM25 MkII waterjacket.

As I'm not quite the Ebay type of person, I put the bits up here only, should anyone really need them.....if so please get in touch...
If possible, swap is my favourite......among my most wanted items is a Frog 50 backplate, wearing parts for the smaller DC engines....or, really...any "interesting" suggestion would be considered, though....

Not much since they are incomplete and non-functional. Maybe free to someone needing them and wanting to pay the S&H for them.
Sorry.

But you might get lucky and find someone needing a crankcase for a damaged engine.

Bump. Still looking.

Also would really like the old Allbon/DC engine cutout that went into the spraybar hole on the engine.

Does anybody even have one? Perhaps a copy could be made if some pics were put up.
