Re: C39 Armature

Good question This website would support Phil's belief. https://www.charnleys.com/part/leyland-light/37h4310/armature-lucas-c39 However, I have seen some chat in forums that the C39/C40 had different armatures See the 3rd comment down this page: https://www.britishcarforum.com/bcf/showthread.php?91...

C39 Armature

Hi guys, So a brush in my dynamo broke, and with it, pulled apart a good portion of the armature and ruined it. I've found C40 armatures for sale online and was wondering if there is any reason why I couldn't fit one of those into my C39 instead? I understand that it has a 22A output, which is highe...

Re: How to identify manifold/carb?

The H1 carb is quite restrictive in air flow and fitting a H2 will improve the airflow to some degree providing that the internals of the adapter and original manifold have been opened out to match. Provided that the holes in the braze do not go fully through to the inlet tract there should be no e...

Re: How to identify manifold/carb?

The part number of the standard 803cc inlet manifold is 2A540. Fitted with H1 carb AUC738 (can be found on the float chamber tag). The part number for the 948cc standard inlet manifold is 2A718. Fitted with H2 carb AUC833 (can be found on the float chamber tag). Between the inlet manifold and the c...

How to identify manifold/carb?

Hi guys, So since I got the car, I've always been perplexed by this odd-looking, poorly done adapter on my carb. It tells me that SOMETHING isn't correct. Now I've done some research with the numbers stamped on my carb and can confidently say that I'm sure it's the H1, which is standard for the 803c...

Flasher unit not powering bulb?

Hello hello! So I'm installing indicators into my trafficator'd Series 2. Nearly there now, so let me explain the setup. Fuse sends power to trafficator switch under dash. I then have the L and R terminals sending two wires each. One to the trafficator as normal, then one to my setup. That wire goes...

Re: Electrical Gremlins become too often

If you are methodical its not hard to put a new wiring loom in. I restored a sprite a few years ago and entrusted the loom install to a friend, who I was confident knew what he was doing, because I didn't have the time. Needless to say that didn't work out too well, various things didn't work prope...

Re: Electrical Gremlins become too often

This thread is confusing me, earlier in the month you did say He (meaning your car) has got a loom to go with him to a new owner. That’s what prompted my suggestion that you might get a refund on the loom. Apparently there is no loom. The plot thickens :D Yes, that was a blatant lie! At that moment...

Re: Electrical Gremlins become too often

Oh I thought you’d already bought the loom. Might have been the way I said - Was definitely intending to, even got to the checkout page! It's worth saying, this has been an emotional and financial roller coaster for me. So don't believe me when I say I'm selling Eugene, but also don't believe me wh...

Re: Electrical Gremlins become too often

Or work the price into the sale....but that means stating it needs a new loom when you try and sell the car. I'm still not sure it 'needs' a new loom but from a distance I can't know...... A new loom wouldn't fix the problems that it has, but would be a good idea to prevent future problems. Right n...

Re: Electrical Gremlins become too often

So a little update! After deciding against the loom, I've opted to try and fix Eugene with my bare hands, until I can afford the luxury of replacing expensive parts. I did a lot of research and found myself soon enough, learning my way around the control box. Seems so simple now! I started the engin...

803CC Engine & Gearbox, in need of love

Hi all, I've come into a spare 803cc engine and gearbox (Not from Eugene!). I tore the engine down to have a look inside, but will be honest, I have no intention of getting it running. No time or motivation, if I'm even more honest! I'm looking for £100 for the pair together, but with very limited m...

And therefore couldn't buy mine...

On the last minute, the sale has fallen through... Is this maybe a sign? Have the stars aligned?

A sad day is looming

Hello again, So after a LOT of thought and toying with ideas, finances, etc, I've had to bite the bullet in the name of many things and sell my beloved Eugene :( I've had so much support from the forums with fixing him and have learned a lot. I'll continue to learn a lot more, as this won't be the l...

Re: Electrical Gremlins become too often

Eugene is now tucked away. My boss has given me a portion of the warehouse to use as a workshop for the electrical work (he doesn't want me flushing fluids or anything messy). Loom and extra bits to be ordered soon, then once all is running, he's back home in the garage for more work!

Re: Mobile Phone Holder

I can see many concerns being voiced about the use of mobile phones in your car, but remember that our phones are satnavs. I know many people who use them for navigation in the exact same way you'd use a TomTom. I agree with Les. There are many available for dirt cheap that simply stick to the winds...

Glad you’ve now got a plan, looks like your present list of things to do would be enough for now. Worry about other improvements later, you’re in danger of getting overwhelmed.
