The diaphrams are available separately for under $10. Of course, shipping
costs may be a little prohibitive for a part that could almost be stuck in an
envelope with a $.32 stamp. You may want to call around and see if one is
available locally - a surprising number of Spitfire parts are available from
Pep Boys, National Auto etc. This way you can also check out the quality
before you buy - the last one I got was a thin rubber that wouldn't hold it's
shape. It kept wanting to pop inside out - I had to hold it place while
the dashpot, and quickly pull out my little finger while slamming the dashpot
cover home before it could shift. Annoying ...
And oh yeah, better stock up now. April is National Boycott Stromberg
