Funny you should mention this, I went to the LR Stealership to purchase some dashboard globes and I enquired about O-rings and the guy said its a massive job and theres heaps of O-rings to replace. You dont mention where your from so it makes it a little hard to tell you where to purchase them.

I take paypal and international money orders as well
Thanks for the offer but I have a few customers lined up requiring valve block re sealing
Yeah Im in South Africa and no problems getting o rings, was hoping for a list of what sizes and quantity per
block so I could speed up things for waiting customers

I need to support my local suppliers as there are some very well stocked suppliers here and would be counter
productive to the SA economy to import but thanks for the offer and understand if you dont want to share info
to others many miles away.

Guys in SA if you want compressor piston and sleeve genuine part by comp manufacturers PM me and will give details
of a guy who posts country wide, piston and sleeve sells for R1200 and is a 15min job max if rest of comp is ok
Also have details for better filtration for comp as dust here kills the teflon ring in no time as the pad filter was not
designed for auto use

cheers

Dennis is offering his o-rings based on work - disassembling the valve block, measuring and locating rings, and assembling a kit and writing up instructions. And he is not asking a lot of money (were he Land Rover the kit would be $50).

I can understand your wish to support local suppliers (though I doubt $2 worths of o-rings will keep them in business if they are on the edge) but you have to consider that we have to support our suppliers here as well - or we'd be back to searching forums (which you quite obviously have not done either) and calling supplier after supplier to see who has a needed generic part. Either go through the work yourself or at least spend some real time searching the site. No pain, no gain.

Asking Dennis to hand you that info rather than laying out the little bit of cash for at least one kit is 'cheeky' in Brit English. Id say you've got balls - and and not as a compliment.

And, you can get a complete set of o rings, nicely packed and presented, from Gremeltech in Cape Town.

Isnt the net a wonderful place, its full of usefull information for all to see, we have places called forums where info is shared and knowledge gained and thats one motto in life I've always followed is to share what I know with others so that they too can benefit from what I have done and I give my knowlegde freely, physical, well thats how I make a living.

Living here in SA is different than in France as I have been there twice not to mention crossing Africa from the UK down.
On that trip I meet alot of good people who were willing to help with directiions and other info and even though I offered
payment they refused, in Nigeria I was given a variety fresh fruit straight out the jungle by customs guys who arranged a woman to cut and prepare in front of me, if that wasnt enough they supplied new plastic food boxes free so I could take more with me on my journey forward, little things like this I shall always remember proberly and hopfully for the rest of my
life as it was a positive event.

As time goes by I will be replying to many topics with advice, Im good at what I do as its a passion (mad) and proudly so
I'll be posting up pics and other info and freely too with out a paypal link to pay for information (its not right) and thats
not directed at Dennis in anyway as he has been a gret help to many

Granted I suppose I may be a bit lax on searching but I have searched and hence why I posted a request for information
and thats all that I was looking for......happy, cos I am

I speak as a foreigner, here nearly two years.

I find the country absolutely beautiful and the people very friendly indeed.

Folk from the northern countries could perhaps learn something here; unfortunately, I think viper's message came over a bit wrongly ....

Can be a bit odd when one is on the net on forums, none the less a great medium for correspondents for all

End of the day its a digital word, in a few years time all these lines I bang out on the keyboard will be lost to the digital heavens forever :?

I dunno, without ever having been to ZA, I'd put forth that Americans are also extremely friendly, helpful, courteous, kind, etc (sounds like the Boy Scout pledge) and I try to be as well. And I'm certainly not going to get into a discussion on which people are more helpful, better, nicer etc. Suffice to say that in my experience each country has its own idiosyncrasies and we're all more alike than most of us are willing to admit.

I'd also put forth that being helpful friendly, courteous, etc. also requires not exploiting another's help. This goes especially for the help of someone who makes his livelihood providing this sort of help. In effect, buying a pack of o-rings from Dennis is returning something for the help he's given. Maybe we Americans are more tactful? ( :wink: )

It sort of goes along the same lines as the 'search is your friend' thing tossed around here quite often. Although at times I think this is absolutely overused and a quick nudge in the right direction would have been much more helpful for all, I can easily comprehend the animosity felt by those who contribute regularly to a forum towards those who jump in, don't even bother to try to search for info, ask questions that have been discussed a million times and run off never to be heard from again. Moochers.

And, search is your friend. I know this info was discussed a while back.

BTW, I'm also not going to get into a discussion on who's more passionate. I will say I own 3 RR's at present... :roll:
