Broke my EWL beer engine

Post by jimwix » Mon Jun 15, 2020 12:08 pm

Drat, I just broke my pump :(

I was trying to diagnose a leak and while reassembling the main cylinder I snapped the plastic on the top cap. It's not fixable and I need a replacement part but on trying to contact EWL their website is down and it looks like they've gone into administration :( :( :(
Very sad.

Anywhere else to look for spares?

Thanks,
Jim.

Could you post a picture of the broken part and surrounding area? You could also telephone the admistrators on 01274598585 or email nbaker@rushtonsifs and ask if anyone is currently handling their sales department. It's possibly a standard fitment.

OK, I found the 'how to post pictures' in FAQ.
But I don't get the toolbar that includes the img button, and I don't have the option to add an attachment below.

You need a couple more posts to be able to put pictures up, I think. Shouldn't be difficult to do!

I'm no expert, but sadly it does look a bespoke part.

Bit of a long shot but this must be worth a try

Jim,
I`ve seen the broken part, where is the pic of the surrounding area, ie,
rolling hills, fields, trees, sea view? #-o
