Glad you got it safely. I've read through it intensively and it got me going through my pumps, looking for the perfect start, for the books mods. Pa

Pa..

Is that Jim Caseys book? If so.

I agree, I got my copy, read it and got started.

Got the flatside pump rotor already, filter and spring.

One thing I need to get .... The grey cast iron for the spacer and the tooling.

Not a problem..

I got my flatside pump rotor from JW Boon in Holland... http://www.jwboon.com

I just emailed Rene about the parts....by the numbers that Jim listed in the book, and once I checked the web site.....simple email..

I have the tubing on hand, I just don't have the grey cast iron, for the spacer.

Look for a model engineers suplier in your area.
You can get cast iron bar from 25mm up in lengths of 300mm.
