Re: SP 250 Rev Counter

I know. I therefore would also exchange the distributor or at least swap the tachometer drive from the electrical one of the saloon to the mechanical one of the SP250. These parts I have readily available. I also have an original mechanical rev counter which unfortuntely seems to be beyond repair. B...

Re: Daimler LQ 3-24, flickering oil pressure lamp

Dear Ranald
I have thought about this but where would install the sensor? At the place of the warning light switch on the oil filter housing?

Daimler SP250 rev counter

Dear SP250 friends

I am urgently looking for a working original mechanical rev counter for my SP250. In my car, unfortunately, the electric version of the Daimler V8 saloon is mounted.

I hope somebody has a spare one.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
Best regards
Beat

Re: Daimler LQ 3-24, flickering oil pressure lamp

I just added a rubber washer between the housing of the swi...

Daimler LQ 3-24, flickering oil pressure lamp

Hello experts The oil pressure lamp of my 1934 LQ 3-24 flickers after some minutes of driving or idling. It goes out immediately after starting and I assume that oil pressure is ok but that it could be a failure of the oil pressure switch mounted on the oil filter. Any expereince with that? Has anyb...
