The fuel tap on my TEA 20 is not closing off completely.

After removal and dis-assembly, I notice the white plastic (nylon?) tap spindle appears well worn at the tip, which means it doesn't seal well against the shoulder in the die-cast body.

New plastic spindles don't seem to be available, only complete assemblies with glass bowls.

However, the plastic spindles look like the ones in the MF35/135 fuel taps, which are available at much lower cost.

Does anyone know if the MF35 spindles are the same as the TEA 20 spindle.

Or, does anyone have any suggestions about restoring the tap rather than replacement.

Many thanks in advance for any advice.

Finally worked out how to add photos

Graeme.

I think that is the first TEA20 I've seen with a plastic spindle?

It looks nothing like a to35 nor the to20, it's the first plastic cut off I've seen. Maybe some emory cloth on the tip with new "O"rings and clean the inside.

This is possibly an after market repair kit, the pre filter on the fuel inlet is also nylon , these have most certainly been added on as the originals were made of a fine bronze mesh and soldered onto the inlet. Tractor wreckers often have these taps with broken bowl receiving rims that are almost useless, I would try finding one of these.

Interesting comments about the plastic spindle.

I have found reference to the spindle in old parts books and found a part number, 1881500 M92.

Seems still available from Monroe in Louisiana.
