Hi Simon, yes I have been looking at a couple of HS 2’s that are on Fleabay , both have the Throttle linkage on the correct side, I’m presently awaiting the return to this country of Simon Roons, who has already successfully converted his “ Eleven” with an SU Carburettor.
I appreciate, that I have always tried to maintain my car with the correct parts and materials to be as near to “original” as possible,
All Lanchester Elevens were originally fitted with Solex “ Thermostarter” carburettors, these apparently were not very successful, and most were removed and were replaced with another model of Solex, ( My car has an AH 30 fitted ) so my car has never had the “ correct” Carb fitted in my 41 yrs of ownership!
So to fit an HV 2 SU would actually be a very good compromise, if one could find one , unfortunately they appear to be rarer that the proverbial “Rocking Horse Sh1t”
so an SU HS 2 is about as close as one is able to get , unless one of you fellow owners has an HV2 that your prepared to sell to me 😊😊❤️

Best wishes, Al :) :)

Note, The SU HV 2 was fitted as standard equipment only on the 1936 Lanchester LA 10’s that also had the 1444cc Engine
