Re: V8-250 Saloon: Manual Transmission Tunnel

Hi Richard,

I'd be keen to know how you go as I am about to install a conversion components supplied supra 5 speed in my v8 and was wondering whether there'd be a chance to reclaim some footwell space from the tunnel on the driver's side. Size 13 shoes and not much space!

Cheers,

Nigel

Re: Regency Mk11 1955

I have one in average condition - missing the door trims - everything else intact...

I'll see if I can get some pictures posted over the weekend.

Cheers,

Re: Aero body.

Hi Rob,

Do you have an image you can post please?

I have a 1935 15 coupe and saloon and would be interested in seeing the aero as it's not in the catalogue I have. What year was it released?

Cheers,

Re: Unloved Daimler Regency II

Hi,

I have a regency mkII and it has a locking cover for the fuel cap, the dash gauges are a lighter colour rather than black and it has tray tables in the front seat backs... not sure if there's much else to discern the models.

Re: 432997 tappet chest bush?

The rebuild is now completed so the spare tappet chest did the trick...

The rebuilder did say they could fabricate new inserts but I would say that would cost a little more than the ‎£5 quoted online from david manners for a part they cannot stock but list as available...

Good luck!

Cheers,

Re: 432997 tappet chest bush?

Hi,

They are a bronze(?) cylinder that lines the 16 holes. No picture in the parts guide, just a part number.

I'm waiting to hear back from the rebuilder as to whether the replacement tappet block is a goer.

Re: 432997 tappet chest bush?

Cheers, I tried the usual suppliers (local and UK) with no joy... I have emailed Russ and will keep you posted as I am sure someone else will need some in the future. The other option is to replace the tappet block but at £51 (used - plus postage) and no guarantee of the state of the inserts I recko...

432997 tappet chest bush?

Hi all,

Does anyone know of a supplier of this part for a V8 motor?
I have sourced a supplier but it's a special order part and the manufacturer has none in stock and no motivation to produce any more...

Someone must have had to purchase this part in the past?

Regards,

Nigel Hughes
