There are additional items and pictures of most items available on the club website at or email our parts master, David Evans at with your parts request.

Dave Evans started our EBay parts sale program and has done a great job of getting our inventory of parts to the people who need them. However, now job responsibilities make it necessary for him to pass the job on. If you have basic computer skills and would like a chance to help the club this is your opportunity. Dave says the E-Bay part was not hard to learn and he's available to explain the program.
