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

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

Great idea


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...?

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

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