Re: Gear Change Selector Rod Assy

Perhaps your only chance is to borrow some rods from a similar car and copy them.

Re: 1955 Conquest RYP 225 - any history known?

Hello Kenneth, I am spoken to the garage selling the Conquest and they still have it for sale, so presumably you are not proceeding. I would like to know why you did not proceed. Did you find a fault with it? I would like to go down to see the car but will wait until you contact me as it a 178 miles...

Re: 1955 Conquest RYP225 - any history known?

Sounds good. Did you buy it??

Another Club member has told me that he thinks it was the same car for sale about three years ago and that at that time it had a problem with the gearbox. Presumably that was all sorted by the Club member that bought it.

Re: Daimler Special Sports - Rear springs poundage

I don't think there was any stated Poundage. When I had springs replaced the Daimler Stores at Gamlingay told me to lay the spring down on its side, put a straight line across the ends of the springs and then measure from that line down to the centre of the spring. The Springs would then be reset to...

Re: Quick question LA14 interior

If the Glove box aperture on your dashboard had an opening cover it would have been hinged at the bottom and if so you will see evidence of two sets of screw holes along the bottom edge.

Re: Engine fan on a DJ252

Hello,

I think the 4 Blade Fans were fitted only on the Export models. On a Conquest I had I felt I needed a 4 Blade fan but could nit get one. So as the pulley had four holes, I fitted another 2 Blade fan at right angles to the original. This gave better cooling.
