Re: Dart steering box

Now all, this might seem like a daft question but are steering boxes interchangeable between lhd and rhd cars? I suspect not but am happy to ask the stupidest question if the week ( it’s only Monday).... The RH and LH steering boxes have different part numbers. The box is asymmetric whereas rest of...

Re: Backfiring and loss of power at hgher revs

Re: Pre-Jaguar post-war Daimlers

4 I don’t quite know what to say about this. It would be nice if it had survived as a one-off but I’m not surprised there was no demand for it. How did Hooper go from the 2 door Empress to this? Does anyone have pictures of the interior? Only picture I could find certainly links the car to its SP25...

Re: Dart chassis 101260

Your pictures clearly show the flanged outriggers designed to carry the stiffening 'pontoons' fitted after the Jaguar takeover. The car should also be fitted with the ' A ' post reinforcing frame or 'hoop'. These were very prone to severe rust damage at their lower extremities so even if your car ha...

Re: Dart front shocks

.....Not sure if you can get them in the USA, but adjustable GAZ shocks along with SPAZ are excellent and are light years ahead of Woodhouse IMHO; having used GAZ and SPAX on numerous previous classics. If you fancy splashing out there is the KONI alternative but you pay an extra bit just for the n...
