Re: Splined hubs wanted for Daimler V8 250 (Also loan of Puller)

Hi Steve
I have some old hubs but you need to fit new hubs and MWS can supply tubeless wire wheels, The problem with second hand hubs and wheels is the splines will be worn this will show up as play like a bad wheel bearing.
New hubs are about £90 each.

Hi the workshop manual recommends the same 10/30 oil for Engine, Fluid flywheel and Gearbox.
I have used Morris 10/40 for the last 11years and travelled thousands of miles on rally's and holidays no problems.

Re: Calling all Conquest and Century owners

Re: V8-250 Saloon: Running-In Oil

Hi Richard I do not think you need to try and flush out all the old oil from the tappet chest, it should not be that contaminated after only 500 miles or less. the important thing is to change the oil each year or sooner maybe 6 months after all a new filter is only about £7. I am not an expert on t...

Re: V8-250 Saloon: Running-In Oil

Hi Richard I used to use Penrite oils many years ago but they are expensive, A few years ago we had a visit to MORRIS LUBRICANTS factory arranged by the DLOC and was impressed with the high quality of the production. They test all grades produced in their labs to a high standard. I now buy my oils l...

Re: V8-250 Saloon: Rear Window Replacement

Hi Richard I replaced the rear screen a couple of months ago, the new seal was from D Manners and the instructions were to put the rubber in the car surround then fit the screen, Some parts of the rubber pulled away from the surround on fitting but was able to force back in using a plastic trim tool...

Re: V8 250 Tie rod removal

Its OK I had a go at the job today and by removing the drop arm from the power steering box was able to put the assembly in the vice and separate it.
New tie rod end now fitted.
