Re: Door handles

Hi Daren,
It depends what model and year you're talking about.
The timber framed bodies use raised head countersunk chrome plated wood screws: the all metal bodied cars use raised head countersunk self tapping screws.

Re: Chassie numbers

Hi Daren, Particularly, in reference to 'our' cars, conventionally built, mostly before the second world war, the assembly of a motor car was commenced by laying down a bare Chassis or frame at the start of an Assembly Line. in Austin practice, the Frame Number was stamped on the nearside leg of the...

Re: tickford

All the best with your very interesting project. There are lots of knowledgeable Ten expert members, but the Tickford bodies are as rare as hens' teeth. If you need help, I'm sure you will get it. Your car has much in common with the Lichfield so helping hands should not be in short supply. Good luc...

Re: Fitting bottom hose on a Sherborne

Hello again, Interesting, reading the above comments re protecting the bottom hose against damage caused by a slack fanbelt. In both the Cambridge and the New Ascot Parts lists you will find a listed part number for a "Shield for rubber connection". The Cambridge Part # is 1G99 and the New Ascot Par...

Re: Goodwood crankshaft vibration damper

Hello, Maybe a bit late in this discussion, but I have a lot of experience with the New Ascot and I've always been interested in the "Fourteen" which shares much of the design of the New Ascot. I have a collection of Austin Parts Books and Handbooks for Thirties Austins and I note that regarding a T...

Re: Austin 10/4 Sherborne Handbrake gaiter?

Hi Duckling (Duckie would sound rude!), You are right, the pre-war cars with the 'Signal Box' handbrake levers always had a leather (or leathercloth) gaiter to keep the noise and dust out. Some of the later cars only had a rubber seal, - cheaper to manufacture. Congratulations on your purchase, Sher...

Re: Post valve grind discoveries 1933 10/4

Hi Gary, I'm not a Ten man, but the felt you refer to is common to a lot of pre-war Austin engines. Crude it may be, but as long as it is 'proud' of the surface it acts as an oil seal bridging the area between the rear main bearing cap and the corresponding break in the rear rim of the crankcase. Re...

Re: windshield mechanism

Hi Hans, I am not familiar with Nuffield Group cars, but I'm fairly certain that the chain link hinged windscreen winding mechanism was a proprietary component manufactured by Wilmot-Breedon and that similar equipment was used on many British cars in the '30s and '40s. In my personal experience they...

Re: where are all the topics?

Like many others, I am frustrated by the absence of activity on this website. I check it out every day, but usually find I am the only member online.
