  Whats the real worth of a swb axle
Posted by: goodwoodweirdo - 1 hour ago - Forum: Forum chat... - Replies (2)

Good morning chaps,

had a interesting chat with a fellow austin owner the other day who said swb axles sell for upto €1000 so of course got me thinking, but maybe he's right as I haven't found anything for sale...

so basically we're heading to a point where cars will be broken as the parts are so valuable or are they just stashed away in peoples sheds...

  Three Speed Gearboxes
Posted by: jr2766 - Yesterday, 07:11 AM - Forum: Forum chat... - No Replies

I am currently assembling a three speed box with all new gears and bearings and would appreciate some guidance on setting the first motion shaft. Obviously there is no positive longitudinal location for this gear, it seems that you set the output shaft in temporarily than press the first motion shaft in until there's minimal end float.
The balance of the set up seems to be well covered in the various publications.
Any further guidance would be greatly appreciated.

  Engine Knock
Posted by: aharding - 24-10-2021, 11:19 AM - Forum: Forum chat... - Replies (10)

I am submitting this for a friend who has a problem concerning a 1928 Chummy which he has owned for many years.
It was running well until an ignition problem (almost certainly unconnected with the current issue) grounded it. While he was testing solutions to that,the engine suddenly developed an intermittent knock at around 1500 rpm plus which had never been evident before. The knock was not affected by pushing the clutch pedal – so probably it is not flywheel related. He then noticed that the engine was stiff on the handle at certain points of rotation. He has since removed the head and sump and found nothing amiss.
Any ideas please as to what this could be about ?

  Ruby radiator grill
Posted by: Parazine - 24-10-2021, 10:12 AM - Forum: Forum chat... - Replies (1)

Quick question:

Is the radiator grille for a Mk I Ruby (ARQ) interchangeable with a Mk II (ARR), setting aside the late, covered hinge type?

Thanks all.

  Another nice donation
Posted by: Archivist - 24-10-2021, 09:34 AM - Forum: Forum chat... - Replies (2)

I received a delightful donation to the Archive this week from Nigel Offer of the Solent Club. This donation is of a large collection of photos from various eras, all 7 related and just the sort of thing I have been looking for to bolster the collection of period photos held by the Archive. Thank you Nigel..


The Archive holds quite a number of photos which all need going through, identifying and cataloguing. Not all will make it to the web site, I will be honest, as a result of the overhead of the work, but those of genuine interest will be displayed... As I get closer to doing that work (a pilot project is underway), I will reach out for volunteers to help with the task..

Do any Forum members have experience in using stick-on numbers for the registration plates?

If so, who might I go to, to get period font/style please?
