Re: 12v 0r 6v

Try the starter motor first, *if its like the later 1930s units*, the Lucas trademark, the Lucas part number number, voltage and direction of rotation ( the last also important if you have a collection of parts which may or may not belong together) are stamped in the housing on the mounting flange s...

Re: Book

Hey Daren, lots of questions (not surprising if you have a basket case). Don't know what part of the world you are in, but my two cents worth would be: a) join the Austin Ten drivers Club which gives you more opportunities to ask questions and (get the specific answers you're looking for) on the mem...

Re: Air Filter 10/4

Looking back, seemingly all mass produced UK makes of the era only ever fitted air cleaners to 'Export' models (?). Ditto 4-blade cooling fans and oversized radiators, almost as if 'Export' was short hand for 'desert'. I guess they were hedging their bets. Although a lot of US models from the 20s an...

Re: Clutch adjustment

When you say "it doesn't seem to work at all now" do you mean it won't declutch as in the pedal depresses but the clutch wont release? If this is the case I would suspect the clutch plate is sticking on one or both of the lined plates (I think this model has the plain center plate clutch?) or if the...

Re: Radiator "steam valves"

Peter: FRA series Goodwood (sorry, should've said in the original post). The radiator overflow pipe terminates at a banjo fitting on the top radiator tank close to the filler cap instead of being terminated as a standpipe inside the top tank. If you remove the banjo securing screw there's a spherica...

Radiator "steam valves"

Just enquiring as to whether any members have seen a functional one of these things which seem to have been part of the equipment on later model radiators? They look a lot like a ball check valve (possibly using a brass ball), judging by what's left on my car, but was the ball originally lightly spr...

Re: Fuel guage fluid 10/4 1933

You need the ATDC fact sheet #5, which gives some information on the Hobson 'Telegage' system which is what you have. The original red fluid isn't very user friendly (and I would think unobtainable in its original formulation) but the factsheet gives you some alternatives to consider. There is a bit...

Re: 1933 A10 window regulator brake spring

Yes, my regulator is very similar to the one on the Austin Seven Friends website under the post "Droopy Ruby Window". I was donated an early model regulator off an early Ten via the archetypical friend of a friend which was totally different (and had a broken brake spring anyway)I suspect this is li...

Re: 1933 A10 window regulator brake spring

Hi Gary, I know the window regulator brake springs for Austin/Morris 1300 (ADO16) variants are a close enough fit for my late model Goodwood so I suspect that your earlier model car is a totally different pattern? It seems from my limited research that the regulators for most vehicles (not just Aust...

Re: Timing Chain Cover

Thanks for the info Bob, good idea (which never occurred to me) of grafting a suitable platewheel onto the original centre.
No hassles with replicating fastening PCD or hub offsets.
