    Keithb7 , The speedo in the DBs of that era are made of pot metal Your only solution is to replace it with one that is made by Vintage Restorations Myers Early DB Parts are their agents in the U.S They are pricey
  8. '26 ignition switch

    Ray I found when restoring the headlight switch for my 2249 Senior that there were "Dry Joints" in the switch Where your switch has the screws and the little "dog bone" shaped connectors I found that the current wasn't getting from the wire under the screw to the hollow brass rivet and this was on a NOS part There was a build up of corrosion between the rivet and the plate I am just wondering if this is causing the intermittent ignition problem

  13. Well yesterday (Thursday)had possibly the best day ever. I traveled from my home to Fremantle Western Australia to collect three very distinguished guests from California. My guests were Elaine Gong and Sherrin and Donn Marinovich After our excited greetings I ferried the trio to the Western Australian Motor Museum in Whiteman Park about an hours drive away The museum was explored with gusto and memorabilia was purchased to take back home Then it was back to my home (another hour and 10 min drive)for a beautiful lunch of Crayfish (Lobster to you folks) and Salads Plus a couple of Aussie beers were consumed by Donn and myself I can't honestly tell you what the ladies were chatting about as Donn and I were to busy talking Dodges After our hearty lunch we then went down to my work shop to show off my DB 2249 Senior Touring that is under restoration I tried to answer all the questions that were asked and all to soon we had to lock up as our BD Sisters and Brother had to be back in Fremantle by 5pm to board the cruise ship Thank you Elaine, Sherrin and Donn for a very memorable day It was a pleasure to share our hospitality and humble abode with you Ron and Kerry
