  1. I'm hoping to be able to drive it once or twice a month. That will leave time to drive my other cars. The meblems look ok in the photos, but once the sun hits them they become unrecognizable. The clear plastic is all crazed. I just keep on looking.
  2. I might have one , but I on holiday for a few weeks. Does the existing manifold have any numbers on it to help identify it? I brought a rusty wreck for parts as I'm restoring a 1927 finer roadster and parts are hard to find!I I'm still on the lookout for a bonnet!
  3. Hi! Spinneyhill Not sure of the exact year and model. But the casing has R6-1, T86 - 1P ,W.G. DIv. 11 13 36, It also had some numbers on top of the gearbox , SL2336 Plus it has a mechanic drop down, not electrical. Hope this makes sense! I'm away at present but will remove the overdrive as soon as I get home! I have a club rally in a couple of months, not much time to repair the box!
  4. I have been watching this topic with interest as I have prolbems with my overdrive Just wondering if anybody knows of any source of parts for these overdrives? I'm getting ready to remove mine from a 1937 sedan , it has bronze particles in the oil and has become noisy. I will most likely need to replace the large bush and a few of the small gears. So I will need to find a replacement or the specs to have a new one turned up. Any information would be helpful! Thanks
  5. Looking for a medallion to suit a 1955 new yorker 2 door hardtop. It appears that the front and rear unit are the same! I'm just after the insert only, not the chrome surround. I'm not after a concourse piece just a good daily drive one! Hope someone might have one in their shed that they are willing to part with.
  6. Thanks for the input! Will have to check it out and see what is available.
  7. I know Glen, and his carbies are good! But the cost is a little more than I want to spend at present. Furthermore I'm really on the look out for a ux2. Also some books state that it should have a ux3,but the stud spacing on a 1928 model Senior manifold is to small for the ux3 So for now I will try and get this carby apart in one piece and see want parts are good and go from there.
  8. Just picked up a stromberg u-2 carby at a swap. The carby is all locked up and shafts won't move. I don't want to force them as the carby is made from pot melt. Has anyone have any suggestions how to free it up without damaging it? Thanks in advance for any suggestions
  9. I'm also sorry that he had a stroke! Plus I would not like to wish anybody harm! But I'm out of pocket and do not have any parts! So it doesn't matter which way you look at it , we are both losers. Maybe it is only a mild stroke and he can fulfill his orders.
  10. Just been down that road! I was after a horn ring myself. They are a very rare item! And are very costly if in one piece. There is one on ebay at present for $1600.00 US. New old stock! I was fortunately luckily that Jack had one hung up in his shed. It was broken but I was able to repair it. See attached photo. Good luck in your hunt for the parts
  11. Do you have a good driver side vent window frame. My frame is damaged and I am on the look out for a replacement.
  12. Just wondering how you went with the rear main oil seal carrier? They are made with pot metal and just fall apart!
  13. Yes ! You are correct. But because it is an American forum I thought it might be better to use an overseas listing for Australia. But the facts remain George laurie is taking money and doesn't delivery! He should write a book , titled 101 excuses! But in all seriousness I don't have my parts!
  14. Well , I have rang 61754853697 so many times! no answer! Short of driving a few thousand miles to 93 Ringtail creek rd. Ringtail Creek Qlds, I think I have done my dough!!!!!!!!!! SO MY ADVISE STAY AWAY FROM GEORGE LAURIE!!!!!!!!!!!
  15. It might be ok for george! but I would like to enjoy my complete car now. Not wait months,years . I'm not getting any younger.
