Re: Draining Engine Oil

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. The engine when on the test stand with a test gauge made around 20 psi -- relaying on memory not always good. The engine is now in the car but I have not cranked it yet, I have a couple of loose ends to clean up before I fire it up. Due to the garage being...

Re: SP250

I don't understand it but people sell heaps of expensive items on craigslist in the US, again no protection and a lot of scams running. Those folks that like Facebook swear by it and it appears to consume their life, I sure don't understand why selling a $100,000 motor-home on 'free' sites makes sen...

Re: Car SOS Daimler SP250 Dart

left and right hand drive wipers.JPG Sorry to raise an old issue; The wiper arms for the SP250 RHD model I have don't appeared to be 'cranked' or offset enough to sweep the windshield acceptable to me. The windshield rubber has extension wear on it on drivers side with wiper blade fretting against ...

Re: SP250

Feathers,

Does look very good, about £31,300 seems very fair.

Re: SP New wiring loom problems

On my car 2 large brown wires with spade connectors are on the starter solenoid [probably 10 gage wiring in USA speak]. On the wiring diagram attached, one shows going direct to the ammeter. The wiring diagram shows from the ammeter another large brown goes to the horn circuit, however I believe on ...

Re: Hi TORQUE STARTER MOTOR

The starter I purchased was generic in nature and just needed the output gear changed to match the Daimler SP250 which had 11 teeth. If I recall it fitted many British car Jags, Triumphs and MG's but the output gear was the difference. The original struggled to rotate my rebuilt engine in the test s...

Re: SP250 oil pressure gauge line fittings.

Tim, The 1/8" Npt size as you say is common but the other half on the fitting at gauge end and oil filter end were special to me. They have a raised dimple in the center on one side and a corresponding hole to seal against on the other. I have ordered a new line from Barry Thorne [plus other consuma...
