Available Austins or Water elbows

Hello,
  Chasing a few bits to get a shed-find 1934 holden-bodied Austin 10 running again, as it hasn't in 30 years. One thing I'm having some difficulty with currently is aluminium pieces, such as the water elbow and dynamo cradle.

I thought my issue was solved when I came across an ad for a Mr Bob Glenister of Coventry who apparently remanufactures both, but I've been trying some weeks now to get him on the phone with no success. Anyone have an alternate phone number for him?

In addition, chasing a battery box lid if anyone knows where to find one either new or used. (As well as about 500 other parts, but aluminium is priority for now)

Hi Shane,
I suggest you also try Theo at austinsofoldarley.co.uk - he took over from Bob and a lot of his spares - Bob has now semi-retired but is selling off the parts he has kept - leaving a message is usually the best thing.
Regards,
Richard.

I did leave a message, but as I'm calling from Australia, it would be unrealistic to expect a reply. Thanks for the details of the other bloke, will try and get in touch with him.

Re: Available Austins or Water elbows

the water elbow through the club spares scheme - it's still listed, item 204 at £67.17, so I trust it is a stock item.

You would need to join the club and quote your name and membership number.

to join contact membership services email:-

Re: Available Austins or Water elbows

Thanks for offer, but I got onto Mrs Selby and they have them in stock. Their parts list was a very happy surprise, and should get my Austin working soonish.
Regarding Mr Greening, I did send an enquiry about costs, but after a quick note telling me he'd let me know prices, he hasn't contacted me in 6months, so I'm trying to source things elsewhere in case he's no longer comfortable shipping overseas.
Regarding the club, I would very much like to join, but I don't own a credit card, and don't want to get one, anyone know of other methods to sign up?

Hi Shane,
If you use the 'contact' link at the bottom of the screen and use the online form in the first instance you should get help to join, the club still accepts cheques as far as I know.
A bank debit card is probably another option if you have one.

Can I ask who Mrs Selby is / works for? - could be a useful contact perhaps.  wink

Thanks,
Steve V

Hi Stephen,

Mrs Selby is Theo's wife of Austins of Old Arley who has taken over many spares for our cars from Bob Glenister when he closed down Available Austins.

Theo worked with Bob for 27 years.

Regards,

Richard.

Mrs Selby is the wife of the aforementioned Theo, of Austins of old Arley. Very nice and pleasant to deal with, would definitely recommend them.
I'll look into the direct debit route, thanks for the suggestion.

Shane and Richard, that's very useful.
Thanks to your info I have also found they have a website and have subscribed to their email news letter.
