Thankyou John. I hope that things will come to fruition. The parts Manager came to see me today and brought the new mudguard to see that it was right and it lined up perfectly in all respects with the 1294 and 1490, it even has all the mounting holes pre-drilled for the worklamp and numberplate bracket etc. Also has the curved square tube at the rear underside for the wiring. One part that they said will not be done is the 90/94 series bonnet grille surround as the cost of setting up the mould(s) for them would cost £28,000 so I told the parts chap to contact the boat builders in the region around here, Devon and Cornwall and see if they would do them, they seem to be looking for work now in the present economic climate. Anyway, enough from me at present.

Back on this subject again. I have found an excellent replacement for the throttle and stop return springs for the 3 cylinder D.B. models on the injector pump. These tension springs are the same length as the originals, they just need a little modding on the ends to just open up the rings to fit.

Chris. I think that the majority of car washer bottles that have the motor fitted on them are the same, might be worth looking into.

There are lots of bits and bobs out there that can be used as an altenative to original parts and even parts that are the same but used in other aplications. Not an out-and-out trade advertising exercise, just offering tips and advice to members in searching for shortcuts in obtaining elusive bits and peices and those that can easily be fabricated yourself.

Much agreement there! If like me,you find it difficult to 'think outside the box'these tips can be invaluable as well as facinating.The popularity of this topic speaks for its self i think.Am careful to check the shop now,so as not to incur anyones wrath....
Also made a new wire conduit out of an old tent pole.Making the P clips took a couple of goes,will post pics if any interest.

I've often done the same with making up the wiring tubes that go across the back axle of the Selectamatics, 3/8ths or thereabouts, copper pipe, bent to the right angles with a wheel pipe bender tool, flare the ends and make the P brackets from suitable thickness copper sheet, drill, shape and solder in place for fixing to the axle, you would'nt know the difference! Same thing for the wiring tubes on Implematic wings for the side lamps, just smaller copper pipe, around 1/4 inch bore.

Note to all. I don't know how many of you have replaced your old suspension seat pan and cushion for a new one as pictured in the right-hand column BUT, I fitted one to my 880 on friday and found that the fitting brackets on the base of the pan for the cross bar are not far enough apart and you need to remove the two hard plastic bush inserts on the front tube of the H bracket in order to fit it. This nesessitates you to improvise bushes for the cross-pin and fit far enough in the tube to be level with the outer edges. When the manufacturers took their measurements, or the chap that gave them the measurements obviously measured the distance by measuring across the H bracket MINUS the bushes as these were obviously missing. Can I just say to everyone, when attemting to get a part re-manufactured, please make sure that whatever the part fits to that you measure correctly and make sure what it fits to IS ALL THERE! It helps and when correct a new part that is quite expensive is then not rendered useless.

hello tim,
sorry i was the chap who had the seat manufactured,and i have fitted dozens,yes you are right but this is easily fixed simply grind a 'wee bit' off the tube where the plastic bushes are and 'hey presto' .
thats a lot easier than choppping off redrilling or bashing it in with the sledge hammer!
regards
joe

Joe.
I think that the 'manufacturer' has got it wrong as they are supplying other outlets also, not your fault so don't beat yourself up over this. However, I for one will not be chopping and grinding a perfectly good original part to accomodate fitting a poorly manufactured replacement part. Basically, all that's wrong with the brackets is that they are narrower each side by the thickness of the outer flange of the tube bushes and if the brackets were spaced 5cm further apart each side the seat would fit perfectly. I'm not particularly an out and out purist but I do like things to fit.
