I need some help please. I've just taken ownership of a 1928 Model 18, in original condition and am re-commissioning it ready for the road i.e. new tyres / tubes and brake linings. But the oil pump drips and I would like to identify the make and model of the pump so that I can hopefully source some spares.
Hopefully the attached photo shows the pump for someone to identify.
Whilst checking the Amal carb I found the float chamber was full (seized float) of white crystals, which I've managed to clean out, but I need a new filter for the bottom of the float chamber; does anyone know if these are available?
It's a Best and Lloyd Mechanical Mark II and looks like it has a plunger fitted to show the oil is circulating.
Same as my 1928 Model 18. Can attach catalogue drawings if they will assist.
These are currently being remade - see www.vintage-replica.cz - and individual parts can also be bought.
Thanks for identifying it, and yes please to a copy of the catalogue drawings.
That's wonderful news that parts are still being made and a good selection of parts for the older machines. I'll dismantle mine and see what bits I need.
Here's a couple of schematics of the pump from my Best and Lloyd catalogue. If you want any more please let me know.
