Davies Craig Electric Water Pump

PostPost by: l10tus » Tue Mar 05, 2024 6:17 pm

Anyone aware of the possibility of replacing the bearing in a Davies Craig electric water pump?

Mine is a lot noisy and needs a replacement but somewhere in the distant past I think I was informed they are not serviceable?

It's the150 largest aluminium bodied size unit, for reference.

If anyone has experience in doing it , or knowing how to go about it, any advice would be appreciated,

Thanks,
Phil.

From memory T7 Design sell quite a few parts for Davies Craig:

I have no affiliation but they have supplied me with some interesting parts.

Andrew,
Thanks for the reply. So does that mean you have stripped and replaced the bearings?

No, I have been quietly building my own heating system but they also supply lots of interesting bits for the anorak minded!

As a DC stockist they may be able to help.

I would be interested in photos (and comments if applicable) of the actual installation if available (and personnal impression about reliability) - thank you !
