Re: Engine fan on a DJ252

Hello,

I think the 4 Blade Fans were fitted only on the Export models. On a Conquest I had I felt I needed a 4 Blade fan but could nit get one. So as the pulley had four holes, I fitted another 2 Blade fan at right angles to the original. This gave better cooling.

Re: Lanchester 11 Special

Re: DB18 Interior Light Switch

Thank you Cliff from the first photo I thought it must be reversed. Now i can see it is possibly the same basic switch but is lacking the bezel. I don't think I could make one and it might be difficult to get one made. So I will hope that I see one to match mine or at the worst get a pair that would...
