Can anyone help with the following please?

A club member has obtained a 5” 9F loco build project with some top feed fittings from “CRO Fittings” but unfortunately only the main castings and some small O rings which suggest the clack is a shuttle type not a ball. He wants to know if the internal parts are still available or the dimensions so he can make them himself. Trying to contact CRO Fittings has proved useless, are they still in business? No answer to phone or email.

See my album for photos of the fittings which look good so I can see why he wants to use them.

First I have heard of them, I'm afraid

But the website hints that they might be rather busy with domestic matters.

... Have you tried all of the contact channels offered ?

Hi there, I'm Adam AKA Cro Fittings!

Sorry if you have been having difficulty getting hold of me, I'm constantly on my emails or phone as it lives in my pocket. I will check the website and see if any emails have got stranded between it and my inbox.

Please feel free to email me directly on

I seem to remember the customer who ordered these parts and didn't realise he had now sold the loco on, I have drawings for the remaining parts of the top feeds so it you get in touch I can pass these straight on and help with anything else you may be interested in or have any questions about.

My club colleague has made contact with Adam from CRO Fittings.

Thanks everyone for your assistance in this matter.

Hopefully two happy people - one selling, one buying.
