1935 Lanchester LA10 rear axle

Post by Culbu » Fri Nov 09, 2018 6:58 pm

Hello,

Do I have any chance to find the washer for rear end axle cover (Referenced #27 into the "Lanchester Ten Spare Parts Catalogue") or should I make it by myself ? In this last case, what is the correct thickness of the washer that I have to use please ?

Kind regards,

Julian

PS : as I'm sure that Al' will read this post, any news from the other French guy... ?

Good morning All,

I'm currently working on a "Special" Lanchester (maybe not a LA10 indeed !!) which presents an oil leak at the left rear axle (see red arrow on the picture). At this step, I block !

Should I remove the brake back plate ? If yes, how ? And the next steps... ?

I found an amazing rubber gasket behind the hub centre (see pictures 2 and 3). Any chance to purchase a new one ?

Thank you for your help.

Julian

I have to add that the rear brake system fitted on this Lanchester is different than the one described in the "Lanchester Ten Spare Parts Catalogue" that I own.

The rear brake fitting in the catalogue :

The rear brake fitting on the car :

An explanation... ? Thanks

Hello Julian,

this rear brake looks like the one of my 1933 Daimler 15. So you should have a look into the Spare Parts Catalogue T.C.73 to clear the needed parts.

Regards
Rolf
