PS: Is there meant to be an 'e' on the end of Berni? I've often wondered, I'm assuming it is short for Bernard.
It is short for Bernard, but no 'e'; in my youth, when I went for the shortened version, I was influenced by the Steak House chain....

Re: Number plate recommendations?

Well Framtons are part of Jepson and they do say on their website that Ace Digits are exclusive to Framptons. The cast aluminium polished digits give an expensive feel to any restoration. Most suited to vehicles registered before 1963 Although on the Jepson page, it says the ACE raised aluminium let...

Someone was very keen on getting that pack.

Re: Number plate recommendations?

I also bought enough raised plastic 3 1/2" letters to make up a plate with my Traveller's original registration number for show purposes, as the current plate it sports is a 1963 one on a 1956 car! And that was issued by DVLC (as they then were) in 1985 during a numberplate swap. Regards, George. M...

Re: Blue staining btween head and block

Different the geoberni. I was always taught to loosen each bolt by approx 90 degrees before torqueing down after the initial run. Each bolt in turn in the prescribed order - only one at a time, of course! This was for re-tightening after the initial warm up after a rebuild. I would probably not rec...

Re: Blue staining btween head and block

Many thanks everyone for your suggestions - a quick question re checking the torque of the cylinder head nuts. In order to check that they are at the correct setting (just in case any were slightly over), should I slightly loosen all of the nuts, then torque up to the correct setting? If I do loose...

Re: Number plate recommendations?

Thanks for the idea geo. I don’t know of any local auto jumbles, but perhaps I’ll come across one at a show next year. I believe you're in Scotland? Try some generic listing sites, such as this one: https://www.scotlandautojumble.co.uk/classic_car_events.shtml I love a good browse at an autojumble....

Re: No spark

Myoldjalopy I suspect your are right about the timing comment. When I fitted an Accuspark, I had to turn the distributor a considerable amount anti clockwise from where it had been with the points setup. So if he has not moved it the timing is probably way out for the points now, and it will be ver...

Re: red insulator pads - wiper motor

It might be that the other one is for a different design motor housing, that used the same brushes.

But I suppose the obvious question is ... Well what was in there before you took it apart...? :wink:

Re: Number plate recommendations?

Do you have any decent Auto Jumbles near you (once they open again)? I've never checked their prices, because I'm not in the market for plates, but I know the Newark one has a Plate maker or 2 on-site. I'm sure they're going to be a bit more cost effective that a larger business. Might be worth a lo...

Not a genuine - a replica - We wonder why it was done .... I does make us chuckle when we look at it. I have Basil fitted with embossed POLICE signs front & rear and a Winkworth bell and Spotlight on the front. Give him this sort of appearance.http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_BGmS3PwGWG8/SfW5uCw5U3I/AAAAA...

Re: Something for series 2 owners

That is a strange listing, as there can be no excuse for running the car without the services being done. Even the free first 500 mile check-up. I too was struck by that. Perhaps the as found in the loft of the sellers late grand farther and was unopened. Is actually an indication of the grandfathe...
