    Default What's the orange thing?

    The rubber bung thing that is around the pipe between the pump and opv.

    What is it?

    On the classic?
    Not 100% sure but think it's probably either to suppress the vibes from the pump causing the pipe to knock, or just a spacer so it doesn't rest on something hot & melt.

    Yeh on the classic.

    I found a parts diagram that describes it as "33 BLK PROTECTION FOR FOLK SPRING TUBE D="

    Not particularly helpful...

    The motor on my parents classic was resting against the casing making it REALLY loud i thought it might be meant to protect the top of the pump from butting up against the metal but every diagram / photo / video ive seen its right down on the boiler.
