Perfect Fit....Here's a few Useful Dimensions not found in the Spec.
on 21 March 2013
I checked several options before choosing this one, but none gave ALL the dimensions I'd need to ensure what I was buying would fit, so it was a fingers crossed decision, which turned out to be perfect.
One independent website I tried showed a picture which looked exactly the same as my old basket BUT gave a seal dia as 86mm so luckily I avoided buying that one.
Even Mc Alpine's website doesn't give all the dimensions, so here's a few extra to help you choose with confidence.
Basket dia = 79mm actual ( i.e clearance for the 80mm drain fitting)
Seal dia = 56mm
The centre of the spring loaded ball is 7mm from the base of the shaft shoulder (step). This gives approx 6mm pop-up, so the sink drain flow rate is about twice the time taken with the plug fully removed.
Shaft length = 31mm from the shoulder.
Shaft dia = 7.75mm ( i.e. clearance for the 8mm hole).
Delivery was very fast and the item was well packed. Free postage and a fair price considering the bother I'd had with repairs using expoy resin failing after a few months in water.
Hope this helps all you sink basket hunters out there in the Amazon jungle!
