Re: Glove box finish - DJ 254

Hi,
All Daimler glove boxes had a flocked finish.
You can buy flocking kits on Ebay in all different colours.
Most of the Daimler glove boxes where in a sandy beige colour.
Exept for the V8250 which was black in the centre dash and grey in the glove box.

Re: Exporting a Daimler to USA

Hi Mark, I know only this company who are operating from Bremen in Germany. I saw them on TV and they are specialist in classic car transport arround the world. On the TV show I was amazed about how they do it. They handled very very expensive cars. It might be worth a try. https://www.cfrcarshipper...

Re: Correct spark plug V8 250

Hi Dave,
The spark plug you want is Champion N5C. Nothing else please.
Also do not use the Champion N8 if you find any.
They would be old stock and we had issiues with the ceramic falling apart and causing engine damage.

All the best,
Chris

Re: Fluid Flywheel Issues

Hi Terry,
I had the same problem with a Conquest.
Check all the linkage that is operating the gear change.
There should be no play in it.
When this is fine it is just about setting the gearbox correctly.

Re: Starting problem Daimler New DHC

Hi Beat, In the old days it was the golden rule to fill up the petrol tank before winter storage. Nowadays it is the oposite. Modern petrol gets useles after a couple of weeks in the petrol tank. It also gets very agresive to the petrol pipes. Next time you start the engine from cold try a bit of st...

Re: Daimler V4.5 (1937) looking for keys, rims, ....

Hi Michele,
A friend of mine has some wheels as a spare for his Str8.
I will ask him if he will part with one.
Sad about keys. Have been to Jaguar Soares Day two weeks ago and there was. Stall holder who had plenty of old keys.
We bought all the keys for our cars.
