Re: Daimler Roadster Overdrive

It probably won't be a cheap exercise. I have read of a couple of companies that supply an overdrive unit that will fit between the gearbox and the rear axle independently of the gearbox unlike more traditional overdrives that were closely coupled to the gearbox.

Re: Oops! As posted within the last 40 mins.

Well, in all likelihood it wasn't Peter White's picture in the first place so you've probably mis-credited the image. Peter White lives in London and the picture is obviously California. It's a miniscule chance that he was there at just the right moment to take the picture himself.

This is what happened to a car in California when the handbrake failed and it rolled back down a slope (posted on a Facebook page).

That's a closed Facebook group which means only group members can see the picture. In cases like that the best thing is to save a copy of the picture to your computer and then upload the picture to the forum. Like this:

Re: Federation of British Historic car clubs

I agree it makes interesting reading but it must be taken in context. The report is based on a survey of 1,236 "representative" adults. The ownership information is based on a survey of 3,387 owners. I think that once you start to scale up to millions based on a sample of just 0.0025% of the adult p...

Re: Gearbox disaster

About 20 years ago I had this problem in a Triumph Stag with the BW35 gearbox, after almost exactly 50 miles of driving. As far as I recall there is a breather pipe which should be a hard black plastic tube with an inverted U loop at the top. Again, as far as I recall this being blocked led to exces...

Re: Job Lot Unified Nuts and Bolts

Ah, yes, completely clear now, I know exactly what you mean. They'd be perfect. I'll send you my address by PM or I can send you an SAE.
