Default Diesel Cooler Thermo Valve Bracket

As some of you may have seen my diesel cooler is leaking.
I'm in the process of refurbishing a replacement unit and have looked at replacing the thermo valve bracket.

There are previous threads about this and a drawing created of the mounting bracket for the valve, but none appear to have been made.

I have emailed a couple of local sheet metal companies and just received the first quote

1 off £100.00 + vat each

50 off £12.50 + vat each.

Is there any members who have contacts in the trade who might offer a better price??

Hi SteveN.
Maybe try and get 50 plus members willing to chip in the £15.00 etc and then order from the company, it's been done before with the chrome scratch plates.

Another idea drop Scott, Mat, or Max, at DMGRS and see if they would be willing to have the company makes some up for the members.

Wouldn't be great though if the OC would commission them and sell them through their shop, at a non profit deal, now that would be what a club is all about

I seem to recall someone selling stainless ones on ebay a while ago, so it has been done before.

Hi Steve,


No 'bosses' have contacted me.
I have not contacted DGMS as I had a response from a member and between us we are hoping to sort something out, hence my bump.
