Water Pump Pipes

Post  mariserve on Mon 31 Jul 2017, 5:17 pm

I have a small but irritating problem.
Of the two pipes provided, the WP Feed Pipe and the WP Bypass Pipe, one is too long and one too short.
Before I start cutting and soldering, am I missing something?
It would seem the pipes should be roughly the same length, about 90 cm. What I have are 87 and 97 cm. Even with an S bend the long one is too long to fit.
Any ideas please?

I had exactly the same issue. I contacted Steve at STW, he asked me for the measurements required and sent me new pipes.

Thanks Mike, that solves the problem.
As I live in Florida, I'll try my soldering and not trouble the hard working STW boys.

Hi

The gap between the threaded flanges is 90mm for both water pipes.

mariserve if you let me know. I can get new pipes sent.
