Hello everybody

I´m looking for a right handside plunger casting for my Chief.
Anyone have a spare ?
If I got it right they changed a couple of times through the years (getting stronger).
Would prefere a late style, so I won´t experience one snapping again ! (kind of scary)

Indian plungers snap?... oh wow, I hate that idea :shock:

I've never seen the Indian version "in the metal" but the BSA and Ariel versions are pretty much indestructible, although accumulated wear in the numerous links and bushes of the Anstey units on Ariels can render the bike nigh-on unrideable.
Shoot, a man could have a good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff...

Michael Breeding made almost all Chief frame castings at one time. He sold most of the Indian business and i'm not sure who but if you write him I'm sure he can point you in the right direction.
