Re: Bronze insert in camshaft

i’m glad you are sorted. I’ve just noticed that you have been running a parallel thread on the Daimler forum so that is why no Daimler owners commented on this thread. I tend to look at ‘Active Topics’ and don’t take any note of the sub forum. Good luck with the rest of the engine assembly. Keep us ...

Re: Bronze insert in camshaft

Hello Bob, I'm almost sure you will find the hole through the bearing is blocked and needs cleaning out.

Re: Old Forum

I also missed the old forum. Just as an example there is a Conquest for sale at the moment. Just by typing the Reg No. into the old forum a huge amount of information about the car from 7 years ago becomes available. Thanks, Ranald

Re: Bronze insert in camshaft

Hello, I'm not sure what it is called. I would have thought that it allows oil to spread evenly over the surface of the bearing. Is there a hole drilled through the bearing to allow oil to pass through on its way up o the cylinder head? My Lanchester 15/18 has this arrangement. I had the camshaft re...

Conquest Century 7939BP

These cam bearings in my Lanchester engine sit in an oil bath with a hole drilled to allow oil to enter.

Re: Speedometer Pinion part No 280720/12

Does anyone have a Parts Book for the DB18? That would be worth checking.
