Sometimes you just have to pay up Matt, that's the problem with this hobby you can get the big lumps at good prices but to repair them costs the money. If you think about things that break at home and you check prices to repair it, costs to much so it goes in the shed and you buy a new one, well farmers etc have done the same with old pumps and engines for years, then companies tag on to the get rich as there's not many parts about now.
So Matt dig deep and look forward to the hours of pleasure it will bring.

Hi Matt, I have never had a H2 but I have had H1s,H3s and a H7. Packing size I would think will be 1/4".

hi...narrow boats use the same type of packing for the stern gear..lime kiln chandlery, wolverhampton are probably the cheapest to use..or if you want to open an account aquafax this is were most of the chandlers buy there gear...
