Hi.
Thanks for that Lewis. The big problem with Enots pumps, and also with Best and Lloyd, is that they used a lot of that truly awful diecast zinc rubbish with the trade name Mazak, but universally condemned as “Monkey Metal”, “Muckite”, “Dinky Dough”, and some unrepeatable other nicknames. If a thread strips or the body cracks, you can only throw them away. The Best and Lloyd Mk 2, as used on 1926 two-speed Flying Squirrels, and some 1927 duplex-frame Flyers, is otherwise a good pump, and they can be salvaged if cracked, because Rudge demon Dave McMahon has had batches of new bodies made in aluminium.
