I am having a problem trying to contact them on our oil pump.

I have called and sent emails to no avail.

Anyone have any ideas on what happened to them or another way to contact them?

A few years ago their entire shop was lost to a wild fire. I think he lost all his computer info and original drawings and simply decided to not spend the hundreds of thousands of dollars to try to rebuild everything.
I read that in an article on DragRacingOnline.com. Which is also closed down as well.
He made really nice oil pumps and rocker arms, too bad that happened.

Titan is gone..as mentioned, fire loss....Centerpoint machine picked up the design and was building new pumps, repairing old ones, but it's my understanding now they aren't anymore.....

In today's digital world, it would seem like a no-brainer to keep electronic copies of your business records, engineering documentation, etc, at a backup / off-site location. (Cloud storage is also an option, but it may not be a good idea for anything proprietary or financial, since the communist Chinese seem to own most of those systems, and hackers can get into any database on the planet). Removable / external hard drives can be used to easily back stuff up, They are small, easy to transport, and have huge capacity these days. I bought a 1 TeraByte (1,000 GB) external backup drive from Walmart for about $59 last year. I back up my laptop on it monthly.

Since I took over in 2003 I did that with every part at my shop. A majority of our product line has been around a long time, so just about everything was on paper as far as prints, descriptions, machining/assembly instructions. Heck all the machining was still done manually.

I have converted all my parts to Solidworks files. The pictures, prints and instructions are now in digital formats. I keep copies of everything in 3 different places with one being off site.
