Hydraulic pumps and bits like that can be found in an agricultural dealership - hydraulic pump on the GUE that powers the fan etc is off a David Brown tractor.

The oil filter on the GUE is the same as used on some VW diesel engines.

Brake parts - you'll need to get in touch with Past Parts in Bury StEdmunds.


Other than that, Marcus Glenn, etc
