Dear A10 Owners. I need your help in trying to get a better price on an item. I am a manufacturer trying to help a customer of mine make a set of A10 oil feeds. As the parts are to be made and a 'one off' they are turning out to be rather expensive. The item is an A10 oil feed pipe. This pipe has two banjo fittngs into a slpitter which inturn feeds another larger banjo fitting (off the spur). They are all conected via hardline copper piping. Its this piping that cracks which is why I need to make new hoses. How often does this craking occur. Does anyone know if this is a regular iccurance, or is there a market for this as a new product therefor bringing the price down? Any help would be great. Thank you Nik
I assume you're speaking of the rocker feed in the illustration below from the factory spares list. As you can see this line is broken and fitted with a flexible hose between the Opera glasses and the bottom banjo. This is the only way to stop stress cracks from occurring.
I might add that these are fairly easy to locate. British Only, despite recent posts as to operating problems, lists them, 42-0139, for $25.21. That is the first place I looked.
