    Hello all! I am new to these forums and was recommended to come here through NAM and some others friends that I have. I am currently making replacement drain-back valves for the R50/R52/R53 Mini's, as I had a bad experience when I first purchased my car. The replacement ones are made of Nylon, and I have just about 1200 miles on the part that I put into my car, no issues. I had planned on pulling it out to analyze it, but it is stuck in there and I do not foresee any way of it coming loose or being removed, breaking.

    If anyone needs a replacement, let me know. I currently have stock and will have more in a few short days.

    Do not hesitate to ask questions! I am here to help

    Hi!

    I'm open to all ideas. Most of the reason I am doing this is for the experience. As an engineering student, I really need projects like this to be under my belt. This part screamed out to me, again because of personal experience, but also because of an opportunity, and I have yet to run into anything else.


    Thanks!
