Re: Petrol Smell

Is there any danger of the fumes exploding if there is a spark from the petrol pump?
I assume the pump is sealed, but perhaps not well enough. :shock:

Re: V8-250 Saloon: Key Numbers

... A spot of oil helps too; the simplest way is to use an oil aerosol with a plastic tube attached, like 3 in 1 oil, as that insures the oil gets everywhere inside. I was told a long time ago not to use oil in locks, presumably because it attracts dirt. Graphite should be used. 1. Coat your door k...

Re: Concrete

Yes, it's probably soaked in. It looks like your only solution will be a heavy duty floor paint. :D

Re: Hello everyone

Yes, Welcome. Daft questions? Daft car designers too. Yesterday I saw a very nice old Alvis approaching and tooted my horn, but no sound was heard. I hit the button again, again no sound. I just had time to return his wave. Now I've probably got a loose connection behind the horn button which will m...

Re: Steering

I don't know what tyres you have, but there was another topic a few months ago where tyre pressures were discussed. 28psi at the front would appear to be a bit low and a higher pressure would make the steering lighter. I run my tyres at 31psi all round. Years ago I adjusted the toe-in myself and ove...

Re: Empress colour code

Re: Daimler is to become the official car manufacturer of the EU

There's something odd about this topic. I read the first few words, then gave up because the post is so long, then looked at the time and date of posting! It's in the wrong forum too. It's in the SP250 & V8 forum when it should be in the other Daimler forum. However, it's reminded me to change my ca...
