  Hi Ritchie
Posted by: Bob Culver - 3 hours ago - Forum: Forum chat... - No Replies

Thanks.

My posts have attracted considerable criticism, contraryism and sarcasm so I had rather overlooked that some might genuinely appreciate.
 
And Colin Reed, join the Club. To my astonishment I got ticked off for the post of 28.9.17 under Smelly Fumes Inside Car. There must be at least ten worse in the last few pages. Presumably the congenital contraryists and the ever sarcastic have acquired pages of reprimands.
 
Keep On

  80 years of bodges?
Posted by: PhilM - , 06:56 PM - Forum: Forum chat... - Replies (2)

During the overhaul of the distributor of my 1936 two seater project I came across a couple of "mods" which caused me some amusement, as far as I was aware the car had been put away 19 years ago in a more or less running state. the more I look the less likely that seems.

When i first took the distributor out of the dynamo housing the drive gear pin looked a little odd.

It would seem that some time in the distant past somebody did a bit if improvisation.

Galvanised roofing nail to the rescue! I guess it did the job tough, maybe one of those "get you home" temporary fixes which became permanent.

Also on removing the base plate the advance weights had been reassembles incorrectly.

Both easy fixes i guess but it does make me wonder what other gremlins are lurking in the as yet virtually unexplored mechanicals.

Both the distributor drive gear and the dynamo to distributor drive gear are badly worn, can somebody please suggest the source of a pair of good quality replacements?

  Cozette delivers no pressure
Posted by: ThomasSwiss - , 04:29 PM - Forum: Forum chat... - Replies (3)

   
my Cozette No 4 delivers only a maximum of 2 psi unde only at revs over 4000 min-1
How can I tell if he is no longer delivering or licking pressure?
I dare not dismantle and open it
the pressure gauge is recalibrated.

Perhaps someone can help me?

  pre-1934 gearbox markings
Posted by: JonE - , 09:15 AM - Forum: Forum chat... - No Replies

I read an article by Andrew Bird in an old PWA7C mag, where he came across what turned out to be an original Ulster box. The markings were  X-nnn-X or something like that, with similar, matched, on the gears and I've seen same on early 65 boxes - which I'd wondered whether signified factory replacements.

Can anyone give any more information on what such markings defined - are they sports only, or have people found such markings with standard boxes? On what sort of age range? 

thanks...

Just wondering if this found a new home today and at what price.
I understand it was not a factory built car, and not a replica either, nevertheless it looked lovely,I 
would have liked but have too many other projects and cars.
I definitely would have bought the one at HVA Auctions but the price was so talked up here
that I didn't bother to go and was surprised when it went for £12000

  Funeral arrangements for Peter Relph
Posted by: Hugh Barnes - 20-10-2018, 08:59 AM - Forum: Forum chat... - No Replies

I have been asked to post the following note regarding Peter's funeral from John Debens, PWA7C:

Dear All,

I thought I would let you know of the Arrangements for Peter's Funeral, received this am.

The Funeral will be at St Laurence's Church, Church Stretton, on Tuesday 13th November at 1pm, followed by the Crematorium ( family only ), and then a get-together at The Ragleth Inn, at 6pm.

Flowers are from family, but any donations people may like to give should be for The Air Ambulance Ambulance Service, which was very dear to Peter.

As many will know, Peter particularly disliked fuss, and would not want folk rearranging anything .. however, Sue has advised that maybe saying a little prayer or raising a glass or two would be very nice.

Thanks, John.

  Door Check straps. 1932 AG tourer
Posted by: David.H - 19-10-2018, 09:00 PM - Forum: Forum chat... - No Replies

These are the door check straps that were fitted to the car.
Held to the wood "A" post with pins and running through the steel grommet that fits into the steel A post.
With a metal rod to act as the door check and somehow the curved plate on the A post must have a purpose in holding/stopping the metal rod, but it seems a bit unnecessary as the rod would act against the A post anyway!
Am I missing some fiendish purpose for the curved plate....it is the same both sides.
The rod doesn't seem to latch into it.
David
