Does anyone in the UK know of a source of leather washers for a Lucas type 30 vacuum windscreen wipers. Foolishly, I have left my info at home today, but I think they are 1 3/8" diameter if my memory serves me correctly.

I could make some using leather elbow patches or similar, but I'm sure pukha shaped ones can be sourced somewhere.

regards

Hugh

I reckon you could make them from bicycle pump washer, else get some thick felt. leather elbow patches would be too thin

re vacuum washers: Try

Metropolitan Leather
Thrapston
Northants

Last year this company produced new 'washers' from an original at the request of a fellow A7 enthusiast. Idea was to offer them for sale in the Austin Seven world but to my knowledge this has not yet happened so they probably have a stock of them.
