Latest News and Projects:

During the last 18 months, there have been a few changes here at Cox and Turner.

Firstly - John Cox, whom a lot of you have known and chatted to for many years has retired from the business - His health has forced the issue, but he is still keeping an eye on what's happening.

Therefore, the Piston Ring Stores near Fordingbridge in Hampshire is no longer there, but has been re-sited to our new purpose built unit here in Tintinhull, Somerset.

Along with our smart new ring store, we have a new member of staff - known to all as "Kit". Kit will be happy to help with any queries for piston rings - however 'Normal' or 'Rare' they may be.

Kit can be contacted directly on 07377 366214 or the main stores number 01935 826816.

Our Piston Ring page has a contact form with a link that will go straight to rings@coxandturner.co.uk So please feel free to send Kit an email.

 

We have recently taken over the assembly of multi-piece motor-cycle crankshafts from a well- known motorcycle restorer and can now offer this service to vintage motorcycle owners.
