Introduction - new owner

Post by Sniper »

Hi, I've just bought a LA11 from EBay, waiting on transport home at the moment. I'm new to pre-war cars but have plenty of experience with 50s and 60s classics so I'll have lots to learn.

I'm particularly pleased as it's a Suffolk car that made its way to Wales and I'm bringing it back to Suffolk, it's got a full history with it, reg is DBJ 652.

I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions as I start working on it.

Mike.

Hi Al, don't know who Chris is but I'm Mike, which might explain why I've not had an Email from you.

I've started some of the basic maintenance jobs to recommission it, I've read that I can just wash out the oil filter with paraffin rather than replace it, is that OK?

I've found that the fluid flywheel is very 'fierce' when I bring the gear pedal up, I was going to check the oil but I've also read that the plug for the fluid flywheel can be 'interesting' to try to remove.

Thanks,

Mike.
