Just out of interest, the science museum have a 1933 Daimler 20 sleeve valve in their collection

Maybe it has spare sleeves tucked away in it’s tool box!,

I've spoken to Agra Engineering, and we've had a brief conversation. Pity they are so far away.

I'll contact the Science Museum as you advise.

I've been in touch with Birmingham Museum, as they have an unidentified Daimler in store - but can't get past the "jobsworths" who answers the 'phone. That's pretty gauling considering I spent eons of time some years ago assembling one of their exhibits for free - hence my saying "If you do something for nothing, that is the value of the respect you earn".

Incidentally, there is also a 16/20 in the Coventry Museum "overflow" of un-displayed exhibits stored in a building on one of the original Daimler Factory sites - and believe me, its a veritable Alladin's Cave! So much so that I've even thought of approaching them to see if I could arrange a private Club visit.

Have you already spoken to the Registrar John Pochin?
