Re: Daimler LQ 3-20 - tyre size - differential oil

Thanks Jerremy. I ordered 6.00x19 since the 6.50x19 are to fit into the spare wheel recess. There is much more choice for 6.50x19 but I found one dealer offering 6.00X19. The size has also been confirmed by Kevn Bennett who was s kind to indicate that the differential needs 2 pints of non-EP SAE 140...

Re: Cylinderhead Gasket Daimler 15

I have no experience but blocking water ducts by the cylinder head gasket appears to me a risky endeavour.

Re: Daimler LQ 3-20 - tyre size - differential oil

Dear all
Thanks for your replies. Yes, I have a manual but didn´t find the tyre size in it. I just have pictures of another LQ3-20 that show 6.00/6.50x19.
I also asked Kevin Bennett who has an LQ3.20 as well.
Best regards

Daimler LQ 3-20 - tyre size - differential oil

Hi Experts I am about to recommission a prewar Daimler LQ 3-20. In that context I have two questions: 1. I am unsure about the original tyre size: Mounted are 6.00/6.50/7.00x19. The spare wheel, however, is 6.00x19. The currently mounted tyres would not fit into the spare wheel space. What is the or...

Re: Special Sports fuel issue

I had a similar problem with my Conquest New DHC that I hope to have resolved today: The car stopped after a few hundred meters. Waiting and manually priming the pump helped to go for another 100 meters. I dismantled the pump and fitted the refurbishment kit. Thereby installing the membrane at the s...

Re: Majestic Major automatic Gear Box

Hi Christopher
Just for curiosity, what type of oil would you recommend for the automatic gearbox?
