Re: Head gasket ideas

I'd have expected oil pressure to be high enough to push oil into the water first, if that makes sense. In theory I'd say Yes to the idea but it does sound odd. You'd not lose a lot of water through oil displacing it so maybe that water is actually being forced out by gasses? Any sign of bubbles whi...

2 different types originally fitted, AC and Purolator. New one is a bit smaller and takes a filter with pressure relief built in and needs an anti-drain valve, ideally.

Re: AC oil filter for 918cc engine

In the UK the paper filter usually comes with the new seal, even for old filters. This filter is common to many UK cars and Farm Tractors. Fordson and Dexta come to mind. I replace them with screw-on filters elements for about £25 US Dollars. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fordson-Dexta-Super-Dexta-Trac...

Re: Rear Spring Hanger Cover Plate

Sorry for a brief thread drift... Taupe. I was in the process of getting my front-end-checking-jig made into a CAD file for laser cutting. Are there any changes to the design you would suggest I incorporate? With regards to that plate, it seems to be the most awful water trap since it can't be welde...

Re: WOM 802J

1. Last one built?

2. First owner Mrs Elizabeth Windsor, Sandringham?

3. First one ever not to leak oil spots on the driveway?

4. The only one that Chris doesn't have the chassis number for?

Any other options? :D

No probs. Factory one seem to be cut thread, hence your snapped stud. Get rolled threads, if you can.

Re: Sidevalve cylinder head studs required

I'll see what I can find. I have sets for the ALTA but not the normal SV. Much better studs are available for much less money, if you are ready to spend time. Meanwhile, do you happen to have the exact dimensions of the stud length and thread length on each? A photo with the studs next to a ruler wo...

Re: Scuttle / Kick Panel Installation Advice

Not sure of the age of your car, but, Series MM had 3 screws vertically lined up about an inch in from the draught excluder and then at the front by the parcel shelf. Not 100% sure the little flap was used on the original cars. Someone into later cars might help on this.

So, I've found a Lowlight gearknob in a box of clutter but it has degraded and is almost crumbly on the surface. Does anyone know what sort of lotion or potion I might try to breath life back into it?
