The previous owner tried to chnge the cork seal but sheared the shaft flush. so I suppose I could get away with both parts of the brass cylinder.

Hi Geof,

Draganfly supply a tap which they have modified to fit the Leader.

I've repaired over 45 taps for the Leader/Arrow . Looking through some bits I bought last year to help do the repairs I found a valve fork/cork/selector barrel in good condition which should help get yours working.
I do make new taps for the Arrow/Leader but have sold out of the current batch and will not have any more built until the autumn at the earliest.

Sounds good to me can I purchase the barrel for now, and can you reserve me a built one when done. How can I pay you ? if you let me have your address and how much I can send a cheque asap.
regards
Geoff

Hi Geoff,

My address-- Brian Hinchliffe . 5, Barnfield Close, Crosspool, Sheffield S10 5TF.

£ 4-00 including postage will cover what I paid for it, you can also pay by paypal, bank transfer ( I 'll send details if needed ) or cheque made out to B. HINCHLIFFE.

The cork should be OK but if you dip it in hot water then dry and cover in oil the cork swells a bit and remains flexible which helps getting it in the tap bore easier and also gives a better seal.

Hello Geoff,

That's a good idea, I'll send a message on the private message facility on the site.
