Re: '63 DQ450

If any club members actually want to restore a Major please contact me, details in club magazine. I have a few that are in better condition but will still need work.

Re: Dart fuel tank fittings

Thanks Dave. That’s useful. I didn’t realise the pick up tube went virtually to the bottom.

Once emptied I could see that there is some surface rust present but no holes. The pick up pipes were ...

Dart fuel tank fittings

Hi all, am fitting the new fuel tank mentioned in my other post. I have a new sender from Manners but have a question as to the nature of the pick up arrangements. My existing tank is not original and has the outlet at the bottom of the tank. The new tank has the pick up on the upper surface. I imag...

Re: annoying misfire - advice sought

Hello all, it’s been some time since I posted the initial query. Thanks to all that posted advice and suggestions. My aim was to get the car to the 60th anniversary rally and given I was running out of time I enlisted professional help in the form of a reputable classic car garage. They returned the...

Re: annoying misfire - advice sought

Thanks to everyone for their replies. Sadly Work and domestic chores have interfered with garage time so I have yet to follow up. I will post the answers when I have the problem resolved.

Re: annoying misfire - advice sought

Thanks Richard, I’m afraid coil leads and plugs were changed at same time. I’m just heading out to garage with renewed enthusiasm. I’ll report back later. Rotor arm to be changed as first job.

King of Thailand coronation

Did any eagle eyed members spot the Daimler used for his coronation that was covered by ITV news at ten the other day? I managed a quick snapshot of it. As you can see, the dog was impressed!
Any suggestions?

annoying misfire - advice sought

Hi Dart/V8 owners, I have a slight misfire on my Dart as revs rise. At idle it runs smooth, it is not shaking itself to bits. So far I have changed plugs, coil, leads and checked the points gap.
