Hi All, I am needing to replace the worn air pump unit for the rear suspension. There seems to be a plethora of different models when I do a google search, but not the one that I need for the vehicle as above. Can any one point me in the right direction for a new pump, ideally to directly replace the existing assembly as per photos at this flickr link https://flic.kr/s/aHsk5oyfG2 Or we at there stage of having to modify another to do the job. I really don't want to chance it with a used unit, so new is the choice if it exists. Cheers David
Forum, I'm trying to decide, which way to go on my "A-frame" knee action suspension.. Did I say that right? Sorry, don't know what they are called... I am cleaning, repairing and painting the frame, making sure all bushings are replaced... When working on the front suspension, I decided to start inspecting the knees... Very rusty, dirty but solid underneath as I began cleaning.. my question is, should I keep going? Are the parts easy to replace? Or should I just replace the unit in whole? how do I measure the size when going the new route? any advice and recommendations welcomed and appreciated... In addition, could someone describe the correct part names for me? You may prefer to send me a message for details.. Im searching and found many references to Dubonnet front suspension, but the pics dont match up, I have "a-arms" with a knee action on top?
I'm assuming all of you have an antique or classic vehicle of some sort. There is a small company in Grand Rapids, MI that I've been dealing with a lot lately. The name is Northwestern Auto Supply. You can find them online at Northwestern Auto Supply, Antique Auto Parts, Old Car and Truck Parts For Sale, Engine Parts, Grand Rapids, Michigan They do ship world-wide and they have just about anything you can think of for vehicles, other than any body. They DO NOT deal with body stuff. They even have a complete machine shop where they do everything right there except for turn cranks. I was surprised to learn that they even do babbiting yet. If you're restoring a vehicle back to it's original glory, there's nobody else I would turn to. The employees are a wealth of knowledge, and learn as much as possible about your problem to be sure they don't sell you the wrong part. In short, these guys truly care about the customer. They don't want to see you buy the wrong part EVER. They take pride in what they do.
