Re: SP250 door window reassembly - C series

Presumably a leaking hub seal would allow the diff oil to seep out over time. If not noticed then the diff could get very low on oil leading to mechanical breakage.

Re: DE27 Chassis D51074 Sold at Bonhams today

Am I missing something or misreading something? £1,265 ! For the whole car? Is the comma in the wrong place?

Re: Daimler Conquest Century DHC alarming noise!

I think it's the gearbox that wines (or whirs) in neutral due to it being an epicyclic box. I wouldn't think the flywheel would make much noise but I may be wrong.

Re: Engine woes. ! !

I'm not familiar with the Solex carb but it seems strange that an over rich mixture can't be corrected somehow. Does it use a piston and needle like the SU or is it a fixed jet? What are the mixture adjusting features?

Re: Daimler Conquest Century DHC alarming noise!

Have you checked all your fluid levels (fluid flywheel, gearbox etc)?

Is it a regular knock consistent with engine speed?

Re: Something for a Sunday

Perhaps that's a reflection on the number of cars we import from Germany, which of course might change after Brexit with a bit of luck.

Re: Poll - 585 page draft Brexit withdrawal agreement

I think it will be voted down and May resigned before I get through all those pages John so I think I might wait until the next 'Deal' is published :D .
