Aaaarrgghhhh ... Bis Water Pump Pipe Union

One step forward, three steps backwards ...
Has anyone got a spare one of these they'd like to exchange for a few £'s ?

If you dont care to much about esthetic I bet you could create one with a drill press out of a block of aluminium. If its only one outlet, you could probably clean it with a drill and glue a piece of pipe of the same size.

I thought about getting it repaired but both the smaller outlets pretty much crumble as soon as you go anywhere near them so I'm not sure how sound the rest of it is to weld to ...

Also considered getting one made up out of a block of alloy but soon discarded that idea as having three outlets that need to be water/pressure tight would be very difficult ...

Guess I'm going to have to bite the bullet so to speak and get a new one, Ricambio have them with the sensor for about £200, how on earth can that be justified  :o

Maybe worth getting a quote off a 3d printing company, here's one http://www.a2p2.co.uk

Not many 3D printed material can handle 100degree water for an extended period under pressure.

Try searching in poland, the bis was quite popular there. https://allegro.pl/ is a good place to look

Is there an option to view allegro.pl in English, I had a look but there was nothing obvious?

I was after one 6years ago, luckily gadge had one he sold me. They were rare then.

This looks identical to Ricambios, so looks like an Italian company has started making them as an aftermarket part, as not same pattern of original Fiat part

£108.47 all in, including shipping. Excluding temp sensor but they are cheap and easily available separately.
