     I have a bunch of NOS JFK timing covers and water pumps. I don't know if there is an interest in these items here but I found a thread that mentioned these parts so I thought I would post a thread.I have listed the crank driver water pumps and timing covers on e-bay. I will donate 10% of sale to this site if you don't use e-bay. I have another type of cover which is set up for belt driven accessories like an aviaid oil pump etc. I have many different kinds of cam drives for use with various types of gear drives. I don't know if i am a small business but I couldn't figure out how to list in that section.
     My father worked at JFK in the 70's and just purchased all the old inventory for these items and we are sorting it out. Love to hear from people who used this equipment. Would love any photos of installations. Would love to hear from anybody with questions or comments.
     We have the old stock to sell and if interest is good we may start making new parts once the old stock gets low.

     Here are the links to the e-bay listings. Contact me through this site or through e-bay with questions. If you buy from me direct I will donate 10% to this site, just contact me through this site, don't buy from e-bay.

     Thanks, Zenon

Thanks Bob for the input. Can you send  me a pic or post a pic here. I have to sort through boxes of parts and partial blue prints, incomplete or scribbled notes for all this stuff. I have the belt drive parts but very hard to tell what the different mounting plates are for. Just beginning to sort through the belt drive stuff and any pics may help. Don't think most of this stuff was touched for at least 10 years. Zenon

Did you get any of their KDK type tool holders, collet closers, or accessories?  I used to go by their place on San Fernando Road and one day it was closed, and never reopened.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

     We only have the timing cover components. As far as I know they are still in business. I will find out for you, and pm you with contact info, or if they don't deal direct you can order the parts through me if you give me the part numbers. Did you know Jack and Wilma?

Desotoman-We actually have some hand collet closers that were made for Royal products but they don't sell them anymore. They are 100% made in the USA. Let me know what you need. I also have many different types of 5c collets, mainly external types in steel or aluminum with machinable jaws. We manufacture machine tools so once the webmaster lets me know how to set up as a small business I will post a catalogue if people are interested in work holding devices made in the USA.

KDK was doing business recently but I see by their web site
 http://www.kdktools.com/
they have closed their doors. Too bad, I really liked their QC holders.

I was only in the shop about 10 times, but both Jack and Wilma were always great people and very helpful. Jack one time took me on a tour, and showed me all his sprint cars, then took me to the shop in the back where they made the Collet Closers.

If I hear of anyone needing some Royal parts I will direct them your way. Keep us posted on the catalog.

Thanks,

Well I have been chatting with Seldom seen slim via e-mail and have made a donation to the site.

I didn't think about selling tools here, I am just responding to comments. I am going to find out what we can sell machine tool wise and I will list it and see if people are interested.

I have often read about dry lakes racing, day dreamed about dry lakes racing. I own a couple old cars that I have tinkered with. I found my way to this forum searching for traces that JFK ever made these performance parts.

Its late, I am going to bed.
