Re: Sorry to disappoint!

There's many a good tune played on an old fiddle - but not that one, I fear. :o

Re: RADIATOR MUFFLER

Mmm, that's exactly the arrangement I came up with many year ago on a Rover that I owned and which persisted in running far too cool on the mostly short journeys to which it was subject. In my case however, I bought a small roller blind (sheet plastic rather than cloth) from B&Q or somewhere similar...

Re: Riley 1.5 brakes

Many thanks for that excellent link arjay; I've just had a look at their site and if they still carry that sort of stock (the site listing is dated Jan 2016) then they're clearly able to provide everything I could possibly need for the job. Again, thanks for the tip.

Re: Riley 1.5 brakes

Many thanks for that link mobylette, it may well prove to be a life-saver when I get to inspecting the cylinders; I'll let you know.

Re: Riley 1.5 brakes

Thanks for the advice Phil; I'm now inclined to go with the replacement shoes you pointed me to on eBay rather than send my existing shoes off to https://villiersservices.co.uk/index.ph ... cts_id=146 which had more or less been my intention.

Re: Riley 1.5 brakes

I've now collected them; big old things aren't they! Unsurprisingly, they need new linings - where's the best place to get that job done? Any suggestions?

Thanks mobylette, that's a great photo and will certainly be a help when I set about the conversion.

Re: Riley 1.5 brakes

OK Phil, will do, but fitting is unlikely to take place for a little while owing to the unappealing nature of having to do the job outdoors in the cold, wet, windy etc conditions that characterise this time of year!

Re: Riley 1.5 brakes

Thanks Phil for the reassuring confirmation about fitting them and also the tip about the snail cam adjusters etc. Thanks too, Arjay, for the note of your own experience in the matter; it's all helpful, confidence-building stuff and very welcome.

Re: Riley 1.5 brakes

Thanks for the heads-up Phil; I've successfully bid on them so I now need to know if there's anything untoward about fitting them to the car or if it really is as straightforward as the listing suggests. Also I'll probably need to refurbish the cylinders before fitting so I'll be looking to source a...
