Hello,

I have really old raidiators and the wheelheads have broken off...probably due to heat over about 20 years......

Had looked everywhere to get a replacement...any ideas.....

I'm not an expert in this area so not sure if you replace these with white standard ones or something...

thanks in advance

I think you will have a problem finding replacements, unless you can find a demolition company that is pulling down an old school or similar.

I once had to fit some generic ones for an education authority that they acquired, they were very expensive and a pain to fit as they came with all sorts of special tools to machine down the spindle to a specific size then fit adaptors to take the new heads and then drill through to fix with mills pins

Hmmm...thought that might be the case. I'm just after the black wheel part.

Seen ones in the USA for about £23 on amazon...might have to think outside the box.

Maybe a trip to the reclaim/scrappy junk yard :)

Thanks
