!!!SOURCED!!! - WTB dead Ulka vibe pump
This is a long shot but I figure worth asking.
I disassembled a Ulka vibe pump that had been sitting in storage and needed a clean to function and somehow in the disassembly I managed to loose a small part. I have no idea how I managed to achieve this. The part just didn't seem to be in the pump, but the pump was functioning when it was put away so it must have been there then.
The part I need is the spring and nylon ball to the left of the brass sleeve in the inset picture. If anyone has a dead Ulka and could be bothered undoing the coil and shipping me the plastic end part id really appreciate it. I guess its only worth doing for less than $10 including shipping. Alternately if you are in sydney I work at the Australian Museum. I could meet you there and give you a tour if your interested.
Or if your on the northern beaches, you could drop by and id make you a coffee on one of the vintage levers.
I will post you a good one for the tour, and a coffee!
Will have to raincheck them though as not sure when I'm over there next.
I think mine has a nylon sleeve, but the ball and spring might be the same. Ex 6910 pump.
I've got the spring and ball from an Ulka EX5, looks to be the same as yours, don't want anything for it, postage may be the issue.
Will PM you my phone number, give me a call we can discuss.
Not sure how interchangeable the sunbeam pumps are with the Ulkas. Do they have the OPV valve built into them? the one i googled looks like it might.
Jackster, happy to show you around when you are in town. just PM me.
Anyone else out there have an Ulka EX4 or EX5 that is not working?
Yea, sorry, it's a ulka, just a ep5, not ex5.
They have a spring and ball in them because I had it apart not long ago. My Musica wasn't pumping properly, and it was that ball. It only needed pulling apart and cleaning.
It doesn't have the opv on top... More the pity that is..
Looks like yelta has you sorted now!
Yes, thanks to Yelta, I really appreciate you helping me out.
still happy to show you around the museum when your in town Jackster.
I knew I kept the old pump for a reason.
