suppliers - October 2010.
Listed here are a few South African suppliers who have been found to be helpful and friendly towards collectors of vintage engines and the like.
This list is by no means comprehensive and contains mostly suppliers in the Gauteng area (where I live). Collectors from other regions are welcome to submit details of their favourite suppliers for inclusion here. If someone has given you good service then thank them by including them here.
As collectors we are always on the lookout for businesses that are prepared to make "one off " items such as foundries, machine shops and the like. If you have any suggested suppliers please send me details for inclusion here.
