Morning,

I was wondering if any of you had bought one of those reprodution fuel pump cradles. There's a lady selling them on a few of the Cosworth forums on Facebook.

I was thinking of getting one but wondered what the quality of the product was like.

Also, does anyone know where I can get the rubbers from, I've got a set of bobbins but need the others.

Cheers

Simon

They did look okay on pics yes. What material? Think they where sold for 150, but no marked back then they dropped production, and think one on passionford also tried, but not possible to keep on because of cost vs what pepole whanted to pay... And thats a few years back, so surr cost to make Are Higher now then back then to if same/better quality

I'm not sure which material is used, I will ask her. There is someone else selling these as well at the moment but they are a lot more expensive.

They are made from 1.5mm cold rolled mild steel.

Okay, what kind of protection is on them? Mild steel is okay, its "normal" steel so will need rust protection like normal

The lady has just confirmed that the cradles are made from brand new steel sheet. When finished they are sand blasted, etched primed and painted in 2k gloss black or satin. If required for extra cost they can be galvanised and the painted for better corrosion protection.

Many thanks!

Hi, I have deleted my correspondence with the lady in question as I found a NOS cradle on eBay a while ago. I had a look on Facebook last night as she had previously posted about the cradles her husband was making but I can't find them either. I will have a look again over the weekend. Simon
