Technify / Continental Intercooler Part Needed

Post by TwinStarScott »

This is a longshot, but does anyone know of a source for a Wiggen fluid coupling / Part No. NM-0000--024701?

With their facilities in both Germany and Fairhope, AL shutdown, I’ve tried four US sources with no luck. So far I've contacted:

Southtec in North Carolina, Premier in Florida, Absolute Aero in California and Galvin in Washington State.

It’s a work in progress David. Like so many companies during this crisis, it’s very difficult to receive a call back. With some luck, there might be some news to report next week.

After sending Wiggins a photo of their part number (stamped* right on the coupling), they wrote back today saying they are unable to locate the part number or cross reference it.

Was definitely worth a try and I appreciate the creative suggestion Dave.

However, there is some good news to report:

the facility in Germany has remained open, working on a very limited basis during the pandemic. Expect lengthy delays when ordering parts for CD engines. On this note, a big thanks to Emir for the assistance he provided in prompting a response this morning from Technify.

Finally, for those coming up on annual inspections, parts availability from Diamond Canada seems relatively unaffected (so far and knock on wood).


*this is a different part number than is listed in the Technify IPC.

I could swear that was a Diamond part, it had some silly P/N like WC-01 as well. Those things are known to fail though.
