Re: 1935 Daimler 15 for sale ebay

Me too. It's not a mistake I will make again, butit was very costly at the time. My 2 rules for car buying are

- never ever trust what a car dealer says.
- never buy without physically inspecting it.

I broke both these rules so I guess I got what I deserved...

Re: Exterior engine cleaning

There's a much easier solution: https://www.bilthamber.com/surfex-hd I've used Bilt Hamber stuff for years, there's nothing anywhere near as good. Once you've tried Ferrosol, you'll never buy WD40 again. Likewise with their waxes - forget Auto Glym. Their clay bar - unlike most, it works with water,...

Re: Daimler LQ 3-20 AC Fuel Pump

Hi Beat,

I bought one from beales - I just asked them for the right one for an EL24. Have to say though I have not actually fitted it - my car has an electric SU pump which is much better. I just wanted a rebuild kit in case I needed it...

Re: 1951 DAIMLER DB18 EMPRESS 2.5-LITRE Registration no. RFR 86 Chassis no. 53900

Very difficult to understand why such a lovely car does not appeal. I read elsewhere (Pistonheads) that dealers are crying out for stock, and auction prices seem to be hardening, despite many people (me included) thinking that the virus situation would rip the bottom out of the market. It might be a...

Re: DB18 Spark Plugs

Hi Stan,

That might be a good idea! Although in another club of which I am a member, it is difficult even to give stuff away. I have thrown out lots of parts because no one wanted them, even a perfectly good starter motor which sells through the specialists at £400 used. No one wanted it.

Re: DB18 Spark Plugs

Graham,
