    Urgent help needed

    Is there anyone on the south coast between Exeter and Bournemouth?
    UK Russ has broken down whilst on Holiday and is desperate for an SU type fuel pump.
    He has tried several local breakers but as he is on holiday is a big buggered and someone with local knowledge or a pump for loan would be greatly appreciated.
    Give him a bell if you can help
    0776 274 7643

    Thsnk in advance

    Jeff

    Re: Urgent help needed

    I've just had a call from UK Russ and he has asked me to thank you all for the overwhelming response he has had for help.
    He has said that he now has things "sorted" and that he'll write a post when he gets home thanking all those who have offered thier help.

    Once again, thank guys and girls, it has been greatly received and appreciated

    Jeff :-)

    Re: Urgent help needed

    Hi All,

    I would like to say a big thanks to Jeff "fozwanger" for posting this up for me, also to "richy246" for offering to loan me the fuel pump from his own car, Kev "Kapri" for his offer of help over the phone (inspite of being broken down himself at the time and waiting for the RAC), and to last of all to the mystry RnS member in Yorkshire who phoned his friend Bob Flint from Wool Dorset (specialises in V8-Flatheads) for the offer of a pump and tools etc.

    I must admit i was overwhelmed by the quick response and offers of help, many thanks to all concerned.

    Cheers.

    Russ.

    Ain't it great to know that this site has grown enough in twelve short months to have this kind of response?
    Russ, the pump wasn't the one I collected for you and dropped at the swap meet was it?

    Re: Urgent help needed

    You'd got it all sorted in the time it took me to get recovered ...5.5 hours for the 4 mile trip home.

    Seemed like the week for it. Sal broke the Mundaneo this week and got stuck in Bodmin. 2 AA wagons and one day later she arrived back home.

    Hi Al,

    No mate that pump is in my garage, but will be fitted on the Oldsmobile today, it's a pity i didn't have it with me as it would have done the job in the short term.

    The pump that failed on the Rover 75 is also the same as some of the BMW 5 series and luckily as it turned out also the same as some of the Land Rovers.

    After a number of phone calls both incoming and outgoing we worked out the compatability and then a helpful X Rover dealer at West Howe (Bournemouth) located a brand new one (boxed up as a Land Rover part) in Weymouth for me that was sitting about on a shelf.

    All the help from everyone concerned was greatly appreciated as i had my wife's 92 year old (93 in June) grandmother with us who is blind and in a wheelchair.

    As was pointed out by Jeff "fozwanger" when you are out of your normal area knowing where to go for parts can be a bit of a minefield and local knowledge and help can be invaluable as it was on this occasion.

    This episode has given me an idea that i am going to run by Si "Roadrunna" which may prove to be helpful to all members over time, if anything comes of it i will put a post up for all to consider.

    Many thanks to all.

    Russ.

    Hi Si,

    Sorry to hear about Sal's breakdown, hope everything is ok.

    Had an idea on this subject, you will have a PM a bit later.

    Cheers.

    Russ.

    Have spoken to the mods about it in the past and we are working to see if it's possible.

    Russ,

    last of all to the mystry RnS member in Yorkshire who phoned his friend Bob Flint from Wool Dorset (specialises in V8-Flatheads)

    Your mystery caller mate thingy was Pete (flatheadV who dropped me a line to say he'd rang his mate (above) for you
