Seek Ampico B Parts
By Mike Walter

Hi all,  I am continuing in my quest to find some Ampico B parts to
finish a restoration.  There are actually four parts that I need. They are:

- The Ampico B crescendo unit which is a part of a B pump.

- The Ampico B pressure regulator.

- Two pair of 5/16" double feeds for a late A or B stack.  I have
been told that they look like 5/16" nipples that are soldered (or
otherwise affixed) to a small metal plate, maybe 1.25" in diameter.
There is a gasket under the plate and that is then screwed onto the
wood end of the stack, replacing a large tube, that originally came
from an A expression unit.

I can drive the East Coast to pick up the parts (especially the pump
& crescendo unit).  Thanks very much for your assistance!

Best wishes,
Mike Walter
