Many years ago my father and I used to use a small company in chudleigh devon for engine spares, servicing and repairs. I remember excellent service from him. Just wondering if they still exist and if anyone has contact details?

If not can anyone recomend a company to repair an OS 91 pumper?

Thanks Roger

Roger, that sounds like it was probably John D Haytree. If so then he retired from the business several years ago and I believe died a couple of years ago.

Coincidently I have been asking around for someone to repair my OS 70 (casting broken at exhaust outlet) and a chap at the club yesterday suggested John Haytree!

Shame to hear he is no longer with us, I wonder if any other repairers will make themselves known - seems like there is an opportunity!

I repair most mechanical issues with model engines.

I also own R.P.M. Performance Engineering, Web site coming soon. custom design and builds for custom model stands and items like that are also available.

Altough castings etc can be tricky and some times can not be repaired.

What's wrong with the 91? I can do servicing on engines, including four strokes. Did a few last year for the club, as well as my own stock. If the pump is faulty, will be hard to repair, but bearings replacement is easy. You can do it yourself with little outlay, but if you're not confident then no problem asking for help.

Really, there is only Just Engines at the moment.

A couple of engines I repaired/serviced:

Needs a new head. Not enough meat left to tap with. You could try using metal filler and re-tap the thread. A new head is around £70, if you can get one...

Does anybody know if it is possible to repair / build up a broken mounting lug on an engine. I have seen the low melting point aluminium welding / brazing rods and wonder if anybody has used them. sad

The are usually Aluminium Welders within reach WW,

My last repair, similar to yours was £10

These lads normally make a living welding Aluminium Cylinder heads, from vehicles

And broken ally wheels from cars hitting the curb

Usually, they will entertain small jobs
