  Hank nuts
Posted by: Erich - 7 hours ago - Forum: Forum chat... - Replies (3)

Does anyone have a source for hank nuts in 1/4 BSW? I've been online and found a company that can supply but in 1000 pieces minimum, which is about 990 more than I can use.

  Unknown RP - Identity?
Posted by: Hedd_Jones - Yesterday, 02:58 PM - Forum: Forum chat... - Replies (1)

Does anyone recognise this car? From memory a 1933 RP. This is collection by the purchaser in the early mid 1980's say 1984 ish from Ruthin North Wales

I seem to remember that one or more of the axles were welded on so it was mobile.

Anyone recognise the bloke? or the Transit van (with what looks like a Cheshire number). It is probably me in the red jumper

I've just had a quantity of transparencies scanned and was curious about this car.

  Steering box nut
Posted by: Stuart Joseph - Yesterday, 01:01 PM - Forum: Forum chat... - Replies (5)

Good afternoon all.
Could anyone advise me of the size of the large nut fitted at the bottom of a steering box, the one to which the fixed stator tube is attached.
I need to buy a large socket to remove one.

Good afternoon all.
Does a definitive list exist of the trafficators  fitted to Austin 7's from 1934? I have original Lucas data but it is far from clear and contradictory on the serial number of some types.

  RK focus
Posted by: JonE - 18-04-2018, 03:34 PM - Forum: Forum chat... - Replies (5)

I can’t see any focus for the RK specifically and it feels it could benefit from it?

In searching to RK information recently, I was trying to negotiate the search engine for the old forum (and realised that you can’t link adequately, for bringing old into the new forum), so what about something like this so that people can contribute links as another focus point when users come across something, and see that it could be information made more readily accessible…

I've just added a few I came across last night, just to give the semblance of a start..

[Only registered and activated users can see the links Click here to register]

If you think its a good idea, is anyone interested in helping such a thing from the off?  It could go off in all sorts of directions like the audience-specfic Gordon England, Motor Dealerships or Nippy blog sites amongst others.

  Tonneau Cover

First, I would  just like to say a big THANKYOU to Peter Naulls and Colin Dawson for their help in providing photos and advice on this forum for my Ruby interior questions.  Also, what a marvellous piece of kit this forum is - enabling dopes like me to contact people who have such extensive knowledge, experience and information.

My query this time is :- I'm looking for a classic vehicle upholsterer to make a tonneau cover for my Ruby based special.  
Any recommendations within striking distance of Stamford / Peterborough please ?  

7trimming looks just the ticket, but is based in Ilkley, which is a bit far.

  With the Warmer Weather...
Posted by: Colin Morgan - 17-04-2018, 09:07 PM - Forum: Forum chat... - Replies (2)

With the warmer weather, I enjoy being able to spend time checking over the car in comfort prior to more extended use - testing the tightness of various bits, looking for trouble, giving this and that an intelligent shake.  Found that the new battery needed clamping a bit tighter, but otherwise no surprises so far this year.  However, in the past have found unexpected issues - for example, a halfshaft nut that had come loose after ten plus years.  Always good to check if corrosion is starting anywhere new, or if any of those little blighters have made a fresh holes in the woodwork (not ringed with a pencil).  Just opened the sunroof to the sunset and brushed away the cobwebs - well, the forecast is good for the rest of the week...
