Post Subject: Thornycroft RJ2

Hi There, This is a bit of a long shot as I am aware that there are very few of these engines in The U K. I recently bought a narrowboat and it has a 1937 Thornycroft Rj2 onboard but we need some new pistons,as ours are damaged, do you have idea where I may get my hands on some? My number is 078 777 16702. Would be great if you could help me out. All the best and looking forward to hearing from you. Shane

If this were my engine I would locate the nearest long established engine reconditioner/machinist and ask them for contacts. I am sure there are companies that can make you some pistons but I suspect some of a suitable size, but possibly a different design are available to order. You could try asking Primrose Engineering but remember they really do the actual rebuilding, not supply self fit parts, but he is a very helpful chap.
