Re: Seven leaf or five leaf springs?

Series 2 s had 7 leaf rear springs. The leaves were thinner than the later traveller 7 leaf type. Saloons later got thicker 5 leaf type. So the minor 1000 5 leaf type will be direct replacements.

Re: new to here

Hi there, welcome to the world of Series-II ownership! Do make sure that you order the correct water pump if it still has the 803cc engine.

A great project and very original, even down to the original floor sound deadening! Definitely one to conserve.

Re: Ser11 semiphore switch.

I found that even replacement of the seal and blocking off the inlet hole I couldn't get mine to hold for more than 30secs before returning. OK for the 1950s I suppose but not much good today. I decided to just remove the spring and allow it to be used manually.

Re: 338 UXS - 1956 Split Screen 2 door saloon

Hi there. You are right on all counts. Aphm would have been the original 803 cc engine but as you say yours has a 1098 fitted which looks like it might be a silver seal engine. The radiator is also a later one. Looks like a good project. Your grill and wheels would have been body colour and the heat...

Re: 1954 series 11 black 4 door

I was lucky enough to get hold of another damaged dynamo and was able to use the armature from that. They do appear online for sale quite often. Just ensure you get the same type as you already have.

Re: "D" on bulkhead

D for Deluxe, S for standard
Paint finish would have been recorded as you say in the chassis number, prior to this it would have been a paper sticker denoting standard or deluxe spec.

Re: Panels etc misalighment

check the adjustment of the hinges and the brace under the bonnet may just need it there.
