Not sure if these might be of use?
If someone has the relevant parts book they might be able to advise.
Did they use a different bearing in the later cars?

Hi everyone

I promised an update on here when there was something to report.

Misi's friend and his father came to look at the car. The father has 3 interesting classic cars (an Ariel, a DKW and a "small" 150's Mercedes which is not a Ponton!), and could rebuild the engine himself. The son has an MGB. Both are very knowledgeable and honest enthusiasts, who could give Delilah a really good home here in Hungary. We got on great with them both, but - sadly - the father was put off by the RHD and what he perceives as a lack of enthusiasm for these cars in Hungary.

Something was previously lost in translation. In fact, the guy with the Sprinter van lives not so far from Tiszafured and not in Budapest. I understand that he will happily meet my asking price - unseen - if and when he can sell the Sprinter.

There is another Hungarian man interested in the car. He speaks no English, so his daughter called me yesterday. The guy is a car mechanic, who enjoys rebuilding engines, so I have my fingers crossed that he will come to Tiszafured and fall in love with Delilah! I am waiting to hear from them.

In light of what I have learned in the last month or so, I have refreshed my advertisements on carandclassic.co.uk and on hasznaltauto.hu. I have also added more information on the Cars For Sale forum.

I have a number of non-car projects that I need to progress in the Spring, so I am hoping that I can find Delilah a good new home before the end of March.

Kind regards
