Sl68 i bolt, spring

Got my hands on an sl68 i today. After cleaning a few decades of crap out of it I found that it is missing it's bolt and spring.

Anyone know where I can get one? Bacci has a sl68 ii bolt, not sure if that is compatible.

The spring is not a standard Nelson spring, just so you know.

I forgot about this earlier, but we do have an sl-68 2 in the museum, if no one can confirm whether they're cross compatible you can always drop by the store and we can test it ourselves.

Good to know. Might take you up on that next week.

Nice, I love those cast aluminum SL-68 pump handles! Actually, gotta find me another one.

The silence on this thread makes me sad.

I can probably improvise a spring but might be stuck on the bolt.

SL-68 II parts fit the original SL-68's.

Worth cleaning up and using-those were simple, reliable pumps. Totally worth it.

My friend Chris bought one back in...1987? and compared to our 007's it was a death-ray.

I have an improvised spring in an SL68. I'm not convinced it is the "right" one, but it works.

Remember that the valve body is pretty soft, compared to the mounting set screws. They can't go very tight as they will crush the valve body. I put them in barely firm and with blue loctite (when it is set up right ).
