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

Problem is the copper. It will not stand up to the vibes. The lines should be steel.

If you make them for the A10's, you have an opportunity to expand your market to other models such as the pre-unit and unit singles that use these pipes as well in slightly different dimensions.


A smattering:
'53 Gold Flash
'67 Royal Star
'71 Rickman Metisse
'40 Silver Star
'37 Rudge Special

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.

John's correct; and use enough flex hose (neoprene, polyurethane, et al) to minimize the length of unsupported copper tubing.
