Re: Grab a bargain

Can't see why anyone would buy them at all Nick unless they are for some rare thing we don't know about, even then a good afternoons fettling and most of us could make them for a lot less. The dished one look very similar to the SP250 body/chassis washers, but the other three don't match anything SP...

Re: Daimler 15 starting

When I were a lad ....... I used to help my uncle with de-cokes and with old side valve engines it was often a problem to get engines to start again and required a tow to do the trick. OHV engines seemed to be a lot easier. We used to take out the plugs, give the engine a good raz on the starter, pu...

Re: Grab a bargain

The others don't really look like the right spacers ...

Re: Daimler 15 starting

The straight answer is no, do not try it.

I would try giving the engine a good turn over with the plugs removed to free the engine up and give it a good splashing of oil, if it is still too stiff, try a jump start with a pair of heavy jump leads to increase the battery umph.

Good luck Syd

Re: SU HV2 Carb wanted urgently

Hi Al, Looks like this is what you need, an HV2 AUC296 and like the HV4 the HV2 was fitted to some very exotic and rare motors, mostly in pairs, hence I guess the lack of response. Like so much these days, if you have a spare and a car that it fits, it is difficult to risk selling, in case the need ...

Re: Engine woes. ! !

Apart from Burlens there seems to be a real problem with HV2 and HV4.

Re: backfire

Nice one Stan, just about covers it, except no one has mentioned weak fuel mixture, can also cause the problem especially if the timing is slightly too far advanced.

BTW, the Welsh way to spell Thomas is Tomos :)
