1920s Daimler engine

I spotted this engine during a recent visit to the Bus Museum in Ryde, Isle of Wight.

Re: LQ2/20 Carburettor help please.

Jed, Have you looked in the LQ2/20 Parts Book TC78? Page 10 and 11 relate to the carburettor. Just for the record, the Lanchester 15/18 and 18 used the same HV3 SU unit.
Burlen rebuilt my Lanchester's one in 2016 for £250.00 + vat. All the best, Ranald

Re: steering box oil plug for E20

Just a thought. Why not remove the oil plug and replace it with a rubber bung as a temporary measure until you have a new oil plug manufactured. Then at least you have the original part available for reference. All the best, Ranald
