HLEP -- Looking for Warmup Regulator for Tii

28 posts / 733 viewsLast Reply

Folks, apparently the warm up regulator for a tii is harder to find than "hen's teeth!"  Anyone know where I can find one or have one rebuilt without having to donate a kidney first for either?  

 

Thank you in advance.

Check Jaymic (UK) and Walloth & Nesch (Germany).

 

For some reason, warm-up regulators are rare and expensive in the U.S., but less rare and less expensive abroad....

 

My experience? In the U.S., a complete used Kugelfischer pump (with warm-up regulator) sells for $500 but a used stand-alone warm-up regulator is $1,500.... 🤔 How does that make sense? And let me emphasize that these numbers are not for rebuilt units; they are for used units.

 

Good luck,

 

Steve

I have a Jaymic one, it is very good.

 

Just looked at their sites.  No cigar.  Are they hiding them or out of stock?

If it’s not on the site I always contact Pete or Fay the owners to check.

I’d call them, Paul. I’ll bet that the WUR’s come and go.

 

Best regards,

For this reason, my extra WUR will stay in a save place!

Maybe you’ve said too much, Tom! 🤫

 

Well, your new electrified fence should at least slow down the WUR thieves. And you can watch ‘em fry with that new video surveillance system... 😉😋😂

 

Best regards,

 

Steve

 

Oh, yeah, back to business: Do I recall that you had a WUR professionally rebuilt and were happy with the outcome?

This is where I sent my WUR - they had rebuilt the Kugelfischer for the PO.

I didn’t recall that!  They’re certainly one of the best Kugelfischer rebuilders.

 

(People will argue over who’s cheapest, who’s fastest, and some might equal, but none exceed, P.A.R. in the quality of their rebuilds.)

 

Thanks and best regards,

 

Steve

Thank you for all of your responses.  They are much appreciated.  as a prologue, I called all of the names folks gave me, along with some of the other usual suspects like Top End Performance, Korman even Coupe Kings.  Other than Steve at Top End, I never heard back from Koram or Coupe Kings, even to say, "sorry, can't help you."  The folks over-seas in England and Germany responded promptly but could not help; they were out of them (new & reconditions).  Maximillian Imports claims they can rebuild them with all new internal parts for around $600, with a 4-5 day turn around.  Wes Ingram can rebuild it, but said he was 6-months out.  I called Precision Auto and spoke to Dave.  He indicated that he can rebuild mine for around $300-$400 but it would take 2-3 weeks to get it back.  Dave suggested I call JF Pro for whom he'd built 4-5 of them a year or two ago.  JF Pro's answering machine is full so I sent them an email today.  All-in-all, I'd go with Wes since he is the proven deal, but I don't have 6-months to wait.  I think my "Plan B" is to try Dave at Precision.  I got a good hit from him and folks think very highly of him on this board.  In any event, I am very grateful for all of your responses.  I'll post a final follow-up once the car is back on the road.  Oh, and sorry for misspelling "Help"-- I blame fat fingers.
