  • Converting topkits to roller puller

    Hi guys

    i am looking to convert some existing topkits that have puller bungs in them. They are from an old like and I have already made the adapter so that they will fit my Preston pole. I know I need to wrap these. I seem to remember a post on here a while ago on this topic but I can’t seem to find it anywhere.

    Can somebody either point me to the link for the previous thread or answer the question on this thread please

    Regards

    Preston_Mark

    Vespe makes a small universal side puller, just slide it on and grind the hole for the bush. About 8quid.
    I have an incidental on my left shoulder, he's always there, he's my friend.
    He says he gives me good advice. does he ?

      Mark you can get a kit from a company called Carbon Mods, it has enough carbon wrap and resin etc to do several repairs to the bigger sections, possibly as many as 4 repairs. For a pulla wrap on a number 3 you would get at least 8 single wraps. Its not cheap at £30 but does the job. I guess that a less than £4 a wrap its reasonable.

        Hi Jethro

        This might sound like a bit of a daft question but does the carbon wrap come with the bush or do I have to purchase the wrap separately

            I have contacted him and it seems quite expensive for the amount of kits I would like to convert

              The Vespe side puller kit is a tough plastic sleeve with a bush, for 8 quid you'll not get a cheaper way to add a side puller to your top kit, the sleeve is plenty strong enough. All you need to do the job is a grinding bit and a drill.
              Look on youtube there's a short film of Rikki Richards fitting one.
