Re: V8-250 Saloon: Radiator Fan Temperature Switch

Electric fans and sensor position are two of the subjects that cause a lot of disagreement :D I disagree with the above on both points :o If the fan is a push fan in front of the rad it will have most effect as a fan behind will be trying to pull with the airflow but that's not quite as efficient as...

Re: Daimler 1925 IT 655

David Burrowes has emailed me that "Further research shows it's in Ireland. The motorcheck.ie <http://motorcheck.ie> website where I found it is for all UK and Ireland cars, but there is no record of it on the dvla website. Nevertheless, someone in the UK might know of it's location."

Re: V8-250 Saloon: Spark Plug Tubes - Thread Size

There already is a spanner for V8 plug tubes. Laurence Jones got a lot made but I don't know if he has any left. Tel. 0770 226337 or 01245 226337. It's a large ring spanner with a small cut out to pass the plug lead. Edit: Read the last post by laurie1js http://archive.dloc.co.uk/forum/topic.asp?TOP...

Re: Dart sticky speedometer

Dart sticky speedometer

Yesterday my speedometer was going up to 60 or 70mph quickly but then sticking there. It took about five minutes to go down to 40mph and stick there. Eventually it returned to near zero when I stopped. I'm pretty sure the cable is OK and that the speedo needle is sticking. Is there any way to cure t...
