Welcome to the Wanted page

Welcome to the wanted page. We receive huge numbers of emails requesting parts we do not have in stock. Because of the volume it becomes hard to follow them all up. I have come up with the solution of this wants page. On this page are requests from ourselves and our  customers for parts we do not have in stock. If you have a part for sale on the list please contact me for a quick purchase. If you have a request  we will post it here and keep a note of your email. As soon as a part becomes available we will contact you.

The great thing is your request will stay posted until your requirement is fulfilled and of coarse its a free service for our customers..

I have perused your site on instruments but do not find the item I am looking for.

The item is the temperature probes as used on the Lancaster for engine oil temp. and coolant temp.  They are both identical.  Made by GE and carry a number TJ24.   They have a 2 pin Cannon plug on the end and the probe screws into the coolant header tank on the Lanc.

 Need one desperately but would like to get as many as six.
