Hi All,
Greybeard,
Although "expensive" in some peoples eyes, my opinion is that  they are well worthwhile.
I have rebuild several "A's for customers and consider a new pump an essential item on a rebuild
A full rebuild is an expensive exercise and having seen the damage a dud pump causes its a "no brainer"

I was shown a prototype rotor type pump for a BSA at Stafford last year, but no news of it in production yet??
The projected cost was in the same ballpark as the SRM unit

I bought a high capacity pump from John (Bantam) Phelan in Sheffield. I think he is a forum member. It's made from steel rather than SRMs Alluminum and was about half the cost of the SRM one.

Mike

What topdad said :)

I have not got a roller conversion but I am led to believe that the big ends are fed by a quill on the end of the crank so no timing case no oil feed to big ends which would not be a good idea :)
