Foot Pump Washer for Several Vintage Models
« on: February 14, 2011, 23:08:31 »
I saw these listings and wanted to make you guys aware, as most (if not all) of the foot pump washers are NLA.  These are NEW on Ebay Germany:

Brad,

I checked with my dealer about a month ago and it was NLA.  He will usually contact the Classic Center to be sure and also check the shelves of other dealers.  I use the same site you attached to check parts and it's usually correct.    Maybe they had another production run....may be worth a check!

I did have a new one in my parts pile but I don't remember if I sold it.  I'll have to check.

The #115 869 01 21 is a complete assembly with the rubber balloon and the metal brackets. I installed one about two years ago. It is not exactly the same as the original, but it mounts and performs the same. I believe the original rubber balloon showed through the top metal piece that had a hole in it. The new top piece completely covers the balloon.

I am pretty sure that the original rubber balloon is NLA. Not sure I would want to buy a 40 year old rubber part unless it was for concours and wouldn't get used.

Thanks for the heads up JP!

Actually, this part was utilized from 1968 forward...the one with the hole is prior.   I believe they still made this part up until 3-4 years ago and it was up to $550 -$600!!!  I did research on the various types of Foot Pump Washers and found this web page in German:

I converted it to English by inserting the link above in the Google translation site:

With the lack of W111 information or forums, I've found this to be a great way to obtain information!

Those are great reference pictures J.P.

My 111 is an early '68 ...405, and had the one in the upper left corner with the hole. The replacement was just like the one in the upper right corner with no hole.
