Re: Poor running with a zenith carburettor

Interesting. I read the first few lines and thought "dirty fuel" as you probably fill up both cars at the same petrol station. Do you remember the Tesco fiasco a few years ago when hundreds of people got contaminated fuel?

Re: Thailand King's Daimler

I'd like to know how it was modified. 100 degrees F and driving slowly with air conditioning for the King.

I hope it had two electric fans and refrigerated coolant!

Re: A type overdrive

Graham, that sounds a great idea having a suppliers section, we all must have good companies we have used and can recommend. I can add one, dynamoregulatorconversions.com, who do exactly what their title says plus all LED lights. Paul We have a suppliers section here: http://forum.dloc.co.uk/viewfo...

Thailand King's Daimler

It's good to see a Daimler being used at the coronation of the new King of Thailand.
DE27 or DE36?

Can be adjusted to unscrew most metric, wing nuts, broken nuts, stripped nuts, eye bolts, square nuts, hexes, etc
No use for our old imperial cars?
