  1. Did you fit a new the earth strap from the battery ? It needs to be heavy duty for 6v , an ordinary 12v strap will cause problems.
  2. I can see two items that are missing from my car, the "Senior" on the radiator and the crank hole cover. Are they originals or reproductions?
  3. The problem I am having with my sender is the resistor wire (photo 3) . The 2249 Senior has both an electric sender and mechanical Dial. Are you replacing the original electric parts with a modern alternative?
  4. You have done a wonderful job restoring Your Senior, it looks very smart.
  5. The fuel grade was a very difficult job, not helped by the original and new casting not quit matching, I had someone restore the sender and all was fine for about six mouths but it has stopped working.
  6. Have you thought about making a copy of the original Victory Six exhaust box ? I had one made a few years age for my 2249 Senior, but decided to delay fitting it until the current box failed.
  7. This reminds me of my "Grandfather's Axe"; my father changed the head and I changed the handle !
  8. I worked on my Watsons years ago managing to buy some old/ new stock strapping at the time. Is the strapping now available again and have you discovered anything about the Watson inserts ?
  9. Ron ,Do you have a Watson spanner? I can email an outline drawing if you need to make one.
  10. The length from the top of the opening to the axle stud is 81/2"with a further 5" for the locking clamp ; this is not critical, the distance between the coupler plate and eyelet is.
  11. Whow, that is bad! I restored a vacuum tank with a Por 15 tank paint, in the UK Frost are the main supplers https://www.frost.co.uk/how-do-i-repair-my-fuel-tank
  12. I have a new boxed Coote & Jorgensen 50 -12 CWP, X 301- X 302. Is this the normal ratio for a Senior?
  13. Is it only early gearboxes these gears can be fitted to?
  14. Perhaps, at an appropriate time in the future, his family could be approached for the information.
  15. Thank you everyone. I am going to try a 63mm diameter 160 Edelbrock thermostat 8606. 63mm is the right overall size but I am not sure if the thermostat opening is to small, perhaps that in itself plays an important part in the cooling cycle .Rod if you have something near to the original specification please let me know .
