In January 2019, Vintage & Classic Spares relocated GBH Engine Spares from Holsworthy in Devon to its base in Malvern. Brian Hayes, who founded GBH Spares over 25 years ago, amassed a huge collection of classic and vintage engine spares – including pistons, piston ring sets, liners, starter ring gears, main bearings, big end bearings, cam shaft bearings, small end bushes, valves, valve guides, valve springs, oil seals, gasket sets, water pumps, oil pumps and much more. Relocating over 50 tonnes of stock 200 miles was a significant task to say the least, but it is now all sorted on to the shelves in our 15,000 square foot warehouse by the Three Counties Showground, near Malvern, ready for despatch.
GBH Spares has since been rebranded Classic Engine Parts (CEP) and all stock is currently being categorised and uploaded to our new engine spares website www.classicengineparts.co.uk along with detailed application information for each type of part, though please ‘phone or email if you can’t locate the parts you need on the site and we will always check our stocks for you and provide pricing by return. Current search facilities include application data for engine bearings for 1000’s of classic and vintage vehicles – noting when a vehicle is selected, our search facilities will list companion bearing components for the vehicle – e.g. if you have searched for a big end bearing for a particular vehicle, you will be offered the associated main bearings, thrust washers, cam bearing and small end bushes. You can also search for engine valves by application or by head diameter, stem diameter and length – setting an acceptable tolerance band for these key dimensions. And for oil seals by vehicle application or by width, inner diameter and outer diameter.
