Re: Temp Gauge Repair

it’s a few years ago now but i used JDO to recondition my Jaeger chronometric speedometer. i was pleased with the service provided. i’ve also had experience of Speedycables and was very disappointed. Again, it was a few years ago and may have improved since. All the best, Ranald

Re: Engine woes. ! !

Hi Al, Strange. I thought they built new SU carbs to order. On their website they say "Burlen now manufacture all SU carburetters and all SU Electric and mechanical fuel pumps". I know someone who I believe had an SU HV3 from them recently. All the best, Ranald

Re: In line thermostat

Ah, I see. Thanks.
John, No need to worry about air trapped in a heater circuit as the 15/18 doesn't have such luxuries! I was out yesterday and resorted to a blanket and gloves. All the best, Ranald

Re: In line thermostat

Maybe this is a daft question. If i was to fit a thermostat in the top hose and had to drain the system, how would i refill as of course the thermostat would be closed. i know water would enter through the bottom hose but the top hose wouldn’t be allowing water through or air out.

Re: In line thermostat

I've looked further and come up with another one. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/323322014598?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&fromMakeTrack=true Seems a reasonable price and is manufactured in the UK. They give a 74 and 88 degree c choice. 74 degrees would seem to be a sensible...

In line thermostat

Hello, I’m back to thinking about fitting a thermostat into the cooling system of my Lanchester 15/18. Does anyone know where i can buy a housing / thermostat suitable for fitting if i were to cut a section out from the top hose?

Lanchester 18 track rod ends

lanchester track rod end.JPG Hello, My Lanchester 15/18 has been adapted at some time with a non Lanchester steering cross rod and track rod ends. Land Rover I think. Of course, I don't know why it was done but likely due to shortage of Lanchester spares. Anyway, I've acquired a correct Lanchester ...
