Parker Pump

Post by Lewis MacRae on Sun May 12 2013, 20:55

Not sure if this is the best place to post this but it is a pump. Just been working on a Parker pump as it stopped working last year so I took the top valves out and gave them a bit of a clean and will make some new gaskets as well. Cutting it a bit fine as need it for 18/19 May but ha ho. Also a picture of some frost damage found on the wolsely.

Looks like you've plenty to keep you busy over the next few days. Have you just found the crack or has it been there for a while and not leaked?

It was used by the forestery commission so I think they repaired it not my grand (I could be wrong). that's why its dark green instead of the brighter green

Stu's right. You need to be careful what you buy off them, a lot of those Indian parts are made of sub standard materials. & I found out recently that cheaper stuff, like Chinese metals, can not only be difficult, but can even be dangerous, to machine.

But some of their stuff is OK I suppose. Like their transfers maybe??? scratch I certainly wouldn't bother with their paint, I know some people like it but I'm not a fan & I believe much of it still contains lead, which is a bit naughty in this day & age.

(hang on, the text box has changed. when did that happen then??? It's gone all curvy looking & the smilies have been banished to a hidden box)

I find mail ordering paint is quite expensive anyway. Many parcel carriers won't transport it & it's heavy old stuff, so postage tends to make it expensive. I like to support independent local suppliers for stuff like that. We always complain when small local independent paint shops disappear, so it's best to support them as much as possible. :thumbup:
