I keep getting asked if I know of anyone who will rebuild / recondition Pilgrim Pumps. Now Gerry Howard has finished, I have no answer and yet there is a need. I know they were used on other engines such as JAP, but have failed to find a specialist that serves them.
I ask, on behalf of all Scott owners who have a bike with such a pump, does anyone know of such a specialist?
If not, is there anyone out there who would consider taking it on?
Location could be anywhere in the world, as the pump is small and a kindly approch to Gerry Howard might bring some valuable initial technical information. We have a handful of new Holder pumps but they were rescued from the Trickett fire and the plastic windows are gone.
They would need stripping and rebuilding but might have useable unworn internal components. Hand of rotation unknown at time of writing
I have done some asking around on this subject on a German classic bike forum. The only name that came up was Gerry Howards and also that he stopped due to illness. And also that this was a major problem….
They also gave link to a website with some info on HAJOT pumps that could perhaps act as a replacement. I do not know anything on the availability of these pumps.
