Re: DB18 Fuel Pump

Can anyone confirm if the Type-T valves are still available, or will Type-U fit ?

My question relates to our Special Sports, which arrived with a T-type fitted, which will at some point need a refurb.

Thanks

Re: One week of ownership

Graham, glad to see you are enjoying your new car !! I assume the heater valve is the one attached to the heater matrix (and connected to the dash via cables ) ? If so, I don't think there is a direct replacement. However, as mine was missing, I speculatively purchased a V8 Saloon version from David...

number punch set

Hi, I need to make a number tag for our car - its a brass strip with 1/2 inch high numbers.

Does anyone have a set that can make raised numbers ? (all the ones I have found so far on e-bay etc make a depression)

Any help /ideas welcome.

Re: Ss rear axle

Thanks guys. Sorry for my ignorance, I knew the Consort was different to the ss, and assumed Consirt followed db18 saloon. Chris, thanks for assurance about the holes, I can't think why I thought there were breathers. About the paper gasket, I got mine originally from the dec, but this time made my ...

Re: Ss rear axle

Thanks for the replies. Steve, the special sports axel is completely different to the cb18 saloon. (The Ss is a composite of main case, with bolt on arms to carry the shafts. There is a paper deal between the hub end of the shaft and the hub. I will check for the breather on the diff case. For some ...

Ss rear axle

I recently had to replace the paper seal on one half shaft (and new brake linings) due to oil contamination from the diff.

My question is whether this axle has holes to relieve the pressure caused by the diff and half shaft movement. If so, where ?

Thanks
