Okay, i am happy to get urgent needed parts to rebuild the Stromberg UR-2.

But 720 Bucks for these handfull of rings, paper and tiny parts? hmmmm....

 

Should I sell my cars and start to collect empty plastic bottles?

Try buying it from NZ or Oz and see what the shipping charges are! You don't know how lucky you are.

yes. you are right. some years ago I bought a Horn Button from down under..... Shipping was horrible.

 

But 275 Bucks for a tiny needle valve is high price but when you need it, you have to pay. hmmm

I think you are right. The price is close to gouging. No one else have it? Can't reseat the needle valve and seat in lathe?
