Found this posting online, and i'm thinking of trying it out. The febi is $120 shipped from the uk...

"I have gone through literally hundreds of pages of technical specifications on these brake systems and their accumulators, most of them written in German. I have perused a dozen different Forum sites reading up on all the different cars that use this same brake system. I have cross referenced part numbers found on these forum postings from cars that used our well priced Delco part that is no longer available under that number and at $80 shipped I think we have a winner.

I haven’t actually held one in my hands, nor have I found a clear enough picture of it to read all the specs stamped into the steel ball, but it does list as a direct replacement for a General/Teves ATE accumulator which crossed to the SWAG which crossed to the WABCO with the 5 sided nut on the bottom, which was used by the Lotus owners to replace their expensive GM accumulator which had the 5 sided nut on top until they discovered our no longer available Delco 25528382. That Delco part with the Allen socket nut up top is the JLM11659 which shares direct fit replace listing with the Lemforder 11795 01 also used as a direct fit for the Jaguar JLM1907 accumulator.

By crossing part numbers I have discovered almost a dozen manufacturers producing accumulators that should work for us and the FEBI 01817 appears to be the best priced part number and it should be a direct fit replacement. At less than half the price of the next best priced part that will direct fit, who really cares if we need to get an industrial strength oil filter (strap wrench) when it’s time to replace. What I can’t say for certain is that all the parts charts I checked and double checked are correct until I've had the part in my hands, or someone tries it first and reports back."



hese are the tech specs to look at when looking for our accumulator battery. Pressure 2,000psi; fluid volume more is OK don't go less if it's more than 10% of 150cm at 14-18MPa with nitrogen pressure of 8MPa. The Ford guy's have a slightly bigger ball for the Turbo T-Birds and these guys use the Delco ball when Ford is out of stock, most of the BMW balls need the fitting adapter but the volume and pressure work for us and with our stand off the shape doesn't affect us like it does the Riatta and Jaguar crowd.
