Re: Sp250 rear axle

I think that it was the earlier axle that had 3 plugs for two reasons: First, the original (red, soft cover, typewritten) Advance Service Manual shows a drawing of the axle with three plugs. Secondly, the factory subsequently issued a note to all distributors advising them to saw off the square end ...

Despite the gradual easing of lockdown, events at the Ashcroft Museum, where we had intended to hold SP250 Day this year, are not taking place and therefore there will be no SP250 Day on July 12th 2020. Spar

Re: SP250 Steering

Re: 2020 SP250 Calendar

Glad to hear sod's law is alive and well in your area too. I did manage to get my SP out this afternoon but the traffic was awful, so after doing about 5 miles in an hour, I gave up and came home!

Re: Availability of 60th Anniversary SWAG

You're right, Bud but see the latest Driving Member page 12 for details of caps and shirts. Barry has had extremely little interest I've still got a great pile of 2009 50th Anniversary posters. Spar.

Re: Availability of 60th Anniversary SWAG

Bud - go to www.pmart.co.uk and click on "vehicles". Scroll down until you come to the Diamond Anniversary drawing of an SP250. Copies available to order on line in A4 or A5 sizes. The site will shortly be updated to show packs of 10 greetings cards and mugs, both with the same picture. Glyn.

Re: pasSPort

The 2019 Diamond Anniversary edition is now in the post. It lists 867 owners with 923 cars - the biggest issue ever. Those in the USA will have to wait a little longer as their copies are going in bulk to the States and will be individually posted from there.
