It looks as there has been no response that nobody has used a Enots pump on a Scott, although I do know that Ryan Holder used one on his swift. looks as if I shall have to set it up on the lathe and find out like that. don’t want to do it on the bike and have it sieze up because of not enough oil, especially as Richard Blackburn has gone to so much time and effort rebuilding it. Thanks Richard. its either that or swap it for a pilgrim if I can get one.
Good morning Eric,
I have a Pilgrim pump for sale, suitable for crankcase door mounting.
Should this be of interest, send me your email address for me to send photos this weekend. My email details are in Yowl under SECTION INFORMATION.
I had one of those Enots pseudo Pilgrim pumps for many years, but never did anything with it, and never took it apart to see how it worked. I sold it on eBay last year. I never trust anything made out of that nasty ‘Mazak’ zinc alloy, also known as Muck Metal, Dinky Dough, and another unprintable name. When made from virgin zinc it is OK, but in the UK we used reclaimed, recycled zinc that had traces of lead in it, and this caused terrible problems, sometimes years after an item had been made. When I was about ten years old I opened a box containing some Dinky model aircraft, and the wings on two of them had curled up ! I was quite upset, and thought that my mother, father, or sister had maybe caused the damage. I later found out that it was a common problem with thinner parts of Dinky toys, also affecting the wheels of model trains and ‘Mamod’ steam traction engine models, to say nothing of Binks float chamber tops, which often crumble like hard cheese….
