Re: Austin Windsor photo identification

I only have the photo, so no frame number. Yes I hope someone might be a Windsor 'expert' and might be able to provide me some clues to look for.

Re: Andre Hartford Shock Absorbers

It is not essential to jack the axle or car to remove the shocks, but it may be handy to have more room to work by using ramps or axle stands (assuming you do not have a pit or hoist)

Re: BODY ROLL

Hi. I've recently joined the ranks of Austin 10 owners and have only just started to drive the car.

There is a knack to removing the gearbox on its own with the early cars. The technique involves removing the near-side half of the brake cross shaft, and a jiggling of the box to allow clearance of the first motion shaft. The full description is in ATDC Magazine Technical Reprints Vol 1 pages 31 & 3...
