Re: Sidevalve water pump

Yes,i think it would be a labour of love,as the saying goes.
I wonder how many sidevalves are actually left on the road today.I only drive mine very rarely now,its not really up to modern traffic standards!

door cards

Hi all,are door cards available or has anyone got a set for a `52? Would prefer a used set to match the unrestored condition of my car.
Thanks,John.

Re: MM fan blades

Yes,I thought the same thing but they are the same way as in your photo.
