    Carb/Exhaust Configurations for Dyno test

    Don, after a thorough investigation into the cast headers my findings determine the cast headers to be a horrible component. Rootes must have been dropping their quality control. Note my following findings: I took three cast headers from my parts pile. I measured each inlet and discovered...

    Duck!

    Don, I was just at the Goodwood Revival last September. Nothing like the three Spitfires providing everyone a magnificent show at 8 am doing maneuvers over the old air field. No one was that close to the flying planes. Sheeeesh!!! What the .........

    Early Harrington LeMans for sale

    Thanks Reg. From your statement I believe that is why Janne Iggbom believed yours to be a Canadian Demo (promotional) SLH/HLM (as per noted in the Le Mans Part1 registry https://www.sunbeamalpineowners.club/Harrington/registries_hlm_1.html#! After I got my HLM I became aware of the burnt HLM...

    Carb/Exhaust Configurations for Dyno test

    Agree with your last thoughts Don. However, I will test the 32/36 against the 38/38. I have run both and by the seat of my pants I think 38/38 is giving me a better sensation of power.

    Carb/Exhaust Configurations for Dyno test

    Yes, 38DCOE is rare. I had and may still have access to NOS in the box 38s. 38s are the same body as 40s except for 38 vs 40 outlet. Dellortos are virtually the same configuration as the Webers. I'm taking note of setups. I put cast iron in pile. This is my professor question of the day...

    Well done Reg. Have you got any owner history? I can't recall when you bought this SHL/HLM.

    HLM - Dashboard formica

    Wonderful explanation Chad. I think replicating the original faux fiddleback formica in my HLMs would be near impossible. Bernd, I spent sometime searching for Burl wood faux products that might serve our needs. For me, with the Lyrad project, I might use this California Burl Walnut. I...

    HLM - Dashboard formica

    I just went out and took a photo of my production HLM, Naomi, from John Prittie. Note: This is an early production model.

    HLM - Dashboard formica

    Bernd, I'm using Classical Dash in the UK (http://classical-dash.co.uk/?doing_wp_cron=1707585269.7491860389709472656250) to do a complete wood set for one of my MK II Jaguars. I don't believe they are into formica. However, I found Ian Bond, the owner/operator to be very helpful in matching my...

    HLM - Dashboard formica

    Both of your replacement examples have more straight grain than original. Interesting color shade difference between your original and mine. Yours seems to have more gray tones than mine.

    HLM - Dashboard formica

    Jim, I'm thinking "well done" until I noted it is no longer available. And it is more fitted to the Tigers and Alpines with a burled walnut veneered dash. I redid a Tiger and Series 3 in that nice burled grain with real veneer material. They turned out wonderful, but, it was expensive and...

    HLM - Dashboard formica

    Bernd, I went online and found some interesting grained samples. Nothing really matched our HLMs. Maybe someone else has a match.
