SP250 twin coils

Hi SP250 experts Just a thought that struck my mind when I was reading literature about ignition. Maybe it has already been answered or tested or is maybe even a common tuning measure : Since the SP250 distributor has to separate points - why not using two separate ignition coils separately controll...

Daimler 21HP Open Tourer 1923

Helllo prewar experts This car is for sale. The seller indicates a type Daimler TB6 21. For me an non-familiar type designation. Any idea what it could mean? Daimler Days are silent in this respect. I could imagine it means Daimler Tourer Body 6 cylinder 21 HP. Is the car know to this forum and does...

Re: Backfiring and loss of power at hgher revs

Thanks to all for the great advice. I checked the condenser and the HV advance mechanism. All ok. Increased the advance setting at the distributor slightly. Now it runs much better - no back firing at higher revs.

Backfiring and loss of power at hgher revs

Hi experts As mentioned in my earlier post, I made long drive with newly acquired chassis No. 100164. Already on the autobahn I felt that it lacks power at higher revs. Looking at it closer at home, I figured out that it backfires at revs above 3500 / 4000 rpm. Up to 2500 / 300 rpm it is running ver...

Re: Chassis No. 100164

Hello SP250 friends It is now mine and I am happy to be a member of the SP250 owner crowd again. I transferred it from the Frankfurt region to Munich on Thursaday. She drove very well over the German autobahn. We made a 460 km test trip. One problem at higher revs remains that I would like to addess...

Car Data Sheets / LQ 3-20

On the old website there was a part with car data sheets that I liked very much to look up data for different cars. Are these sheets still available and was there one for a LQ 3-20? I would need top power (HP) and revs for the Swiss MoT test.
Looking forward to every advice.
Best regards
