Introducing myself

Post by alex_gray255 » Wed Oct 09, 2019 5:19 pm

Hi everyone

Just wanted to quickly introduce myself.

My name is Alex and I have just bought a Lanchester 1937 Roadrider type 14 which I am intending to
recommission over the winter.

The car is in pretty good condition considering its age, but the engine, roof and interior need some TLC.
The car has been in storage for the last 7-8 years and has not been actively run - apart from the occasional
engine start and roll.

The chassis is solid and the engine looks to be ok, but it is struggling to idle and run. I put this down to
the condition of the petrol which is over 8 years old and the fact the engine has not had a good service
for years and years.

Wish me luck!
