    Thanks Steve!

    Lifetime as long as I'm alive.

    But what's my guarantee if the material goes extinct?

    (Where's my trolls when I need them for a punchline...)

    PS: I finally found my pic of a molded H float. Miy production is appears porous, because it is machined from pre-cast boards.

    and are the float lever, valve, etc also available?
    It might make sense to change all the parts if possible.
    Thanks again Tom & Steve.

    You can always email me direct at liberty@npoint.net, Ian!

    I don't change out floatlevers, I die-press the pin bores tight on a 3/32" drill shank, and then ream out to fit the fresh pin.
    This slightly widens it, allowing to be centered by filing only one side.

    But the floatvalve needle itself is certainly best replaced, along with re-cutting and burnishing the seat of course.
    (Unfortunately, my commissioned inventory of Monel-tipped needles are reserved for my services, and I have no experience with ebay brass and stainless offerings.)

    Especially with this early stuff, oftener its better to fix what you have than buy a funky reproduction.

    Happy to help if I can,

    Just an update, Tom has sent me the floats, excellent service. Now I just need to have another go at the problem.
    Thanks again.
