Genuine Rubery Owen hub/drum casting wanted

Hi everyone,

Someone has helped me on the forum and suggested I try a post on here to see if anyone has replaced their RO axle-unit with Indespension units.

I've after a genuine Rubery Owen hub/drum casting as one of mine is cracked.

Kind regards,

Daniel

Re: Shelf/Area at the end of the van

Hi Matthew,


Did you or anyone manage to get the sink unit replicated & how is it attached i.e is it just put on the ridges at the back or are there clips that some people seem to refer to - more interested so we can put a bunk in.

Many thanks,
Daniel
