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. I find that the car seems to have an excessive amount of body roll in corners, is this usual or is it something that needs to be addressed through some adjustment? The car in question is a 1933 10/4....

Hi. The club hasn’t any bump stops in stock, any idea where I could get some? Cheers
Alderton's list them on their website

10/4 Clifton on film - Whisky Galore

BBC 2 is showing the film Whisky Galore from 5pm this evening. Besides being a cracking good film it includes an Austin 10/4 Clifton 2-seat & dickey tourer driven by James Robertson Justice. He fills the car rather as his presence on screen!

Re: Indicator kit

There are - many classic car parts suppliers offer them "... at a price, of course". You may not get the style of lamps you want in a kit. Suggest you include Hazards as well.

Re: Gearbox removal

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...

Re: Looking for the owner of an Austin 10 BUW634

Andy The good news is that this car is still registered with the DVLA as being on the road. It has been on the ATDC database for several decades but does not have any current member claiming ownership of it. With the Data Protection Act and more recently GDPA making it difficult to access informatio...

Re: Tappets

No there is not a Technical Fact Sheet for valve clearance adjustment as this is covered in most handbooks. E.G. Pitman's by Staton Abbey page 56, Collins by Hawks pages 69 & 70, the Austin 10/4 hanbook page 49, and in the ATDC Magazine Technical Reprints Vol I pages 18 & 19 in the article on decarb...
