Wilesco Regulator HELP wanted
« on: August 03, 2022, 04:23:41 pm »
Just working on a rebuild for a customer, and hit a problem... the current Wilesco regulator is pretty dire to to say the least, when the engine is cold it almost falls out of the regulator body and when the engine is in steam its imposable to move it without the use of pliers.

I've fitted one of our own regulator kits and all this does is bend the shaft

Does anyone make a replacement regulator to match the good old metal bodied version that worked so well

I did see someone making a very neat lubricator but can find them anymore

It should be possible, to hunt down one of the old metal regulators...

In fact there could be a fair chance, that someone in here has one in the parts box, they would be willing to let go.
