Where did you get the vanes for the vacuum pump?

The Vanes in the pump were ok and reusable so I didn't need to source them. They are Fiber Phenolic material.

However if I needed, I would probably source a a Phenolic fiber board and cut my own vanes. Wouldn't be too difficult.
A quick search I found this.

My engine is back in place so I can't measure but I believe they were 1/4'' thick.

Garolite Micarta 1/4 thick

Lets put some movement in this Forum Gentleman

Some more photos from tasks I did in the last months.

Flexplate tooth with teeth very worn - most like from trying exceesively to crank the seized engine.

Fabricating from scratch rear wheel well panel sections.

Pressure regulator had a blown part from one of the valves. I sourced a replacement body for that.

What have you guys been doing?

Cheers
