Re: Oil for rear axle?

I use Castrol D140. It is obtainable from a number of classic oil suppliers but is not the cheapest 140 grade available. If you want to stick with what you are used to then Morris AG140 is widely available.

Silkolene is a new name to me. Thought it was a paint brand.

Re: Austin 10 Clifton date and colours

Rogan An Austin 10 engine with a water pump sounds like a much later one from a Utility of the 1940s or possibly a boat or fire pump engine. But you may find you can fit the manifolds and carb to get a bit more "oomph" and economy from the earlier engine, though that might complicate the exhaust pip...

Re: Austin 10 Clifton date and colours

Rogan Welcome to the forum. The chassis No. of your 10hp Clifton G126413 reveals that it was one of the open cars that remained in production alongside the Cambridge until 1937. Your date of 1936 will be correct, July or slightly later maybe. Your car may also have a body No. GPA 126713 - earlier ca...

Re: UK Registration for South African Car?

If it has not been done already you will first need to inform HM Customs & Revenue before it can be registered in the UK. https://www.gov.uk/importing-vehicles-into-the-uk Once this is done can complete a form V55/5 and send it to DVLA. https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-registration/new-registrations Likel...

Re: Oil grades

Just one further question in regards to the gearbox. The capacity is 4 pints according to the handbook, but the handbook refers to a filler cap/dip stick. My filler cap is on the top of the gearbox and has no dip stick. Apart from just measuring 4 pints, is there a correct level when filling or che...
