Re: SP250 brake calipers

There must be some somewhere. Manners has them part [RH part No 136203 & LH part No 136203E] exchange/reconditioned at £449.04. But I'm sure i have one in a cupboard in my shed... but they are handed so i need to know which side you need? I think the standard ones are off another car [i.e. parts bin...

As you start the engine the timing advances 6,8,or 10 degrees (dependant on what distributer is fitted) so the idle advance en...

Daimler is to become the official car manufacturer of the EU

Did you know that the Daimler is to become the official car manufacturer of the EU?

He soon fitted it to an old 3 wheeled inval...

Re: V8 250 Barn find

Well I hear there are more border crossings between Erie and NI than crossings between Canada and USA so you should be able to find a quiet road wide enough for your trailer in the next few months!
