Re: Austin 12/6 Harley Deluxe Sun Roof

Hello. I have just bought this car as a restoration project, the car had a piece of temporary vinal covering the roof, this has now been removed and has exposed the remains of the original Sunshine roof, but unfortunately this is beyond repair, someone at some time has covered it with some sort bit...

Re: PICTURES OF FRONT OF HOOD PLEASE

Pictures of hood latch and windscreen spigot on 10/4 tourer. These are 2-seaters but 4-seat tourers are same.

Re: Engine number identification

Usually the Austin 10 engine number is a slightly larger number than the chassis number because of the engines made as spares & other uses. For example a 10/4 Lichfield registered 1st May 1935 chassis No. G67141 had an engine No. IG67875. Of course with any car that has had a replacement engine in i...

Re: 1933 ten, valve grind

Gary Yes valve-grinding was a regular service requirement. My Nov 1933 handbook recommends removing the carbon deposits every 2000 miles and grinding the valves every 4000. On leaded fuels (petrol containing a small proportion of tetraethyl lead) the handbook says Provided that the same reasonable a...
