    Eleven, has the starting problem always been a problem, or is it something new. I had the same problem, and it was cured by a better ground strap from the engine to the body. Do you have a ground strap now. Just a thought. Good luck Jim

    engine bay shroud

    Good idea, I like it. I know this is a bit late, but anybody out there wanting to paint their engine compartment, just take aluminum foil and wrap it and crimp it around everything you don't want painted. No masking, real simple, and it really really works. Maybe a little masking where you want...

    British Classic car show Memorial Weekend Saturday, May 28th 2022.

    Not sure how the fire started yet, everything is so melted down, it can’t be determined. Electrical of some type. Not sure if I’m ready to restore another car again. This one was by far my favorite. I was just in process of re-restoring it. Not that it needed much, but was finishing installing...

    replace windshield seal SV with frame on car?

    If you're not replacing the dash pad, and the rubber seal under the frame, you should be able to replace the windshield rubber without removing the frame. Biggest job is removing the stainless molding around the windshield. Yes, it can be done. Just my non-professional opinion. Or I'm wrong...

    How much brake fluid?!?

    Well, it certainly shouldn't take that much. But you say the fluid is going out of the master cylinder reservoir, it has to be leaking to something. Nothing showing up on the ground? Do you have a booster? It could be going into the booster. Just my thoughts. May be a leaking booster.

    Wanted Replacement Floor Pans

    There's a set on eBay right now, pricey plus shipping. I have no idea what they're worth. $500.00 is what they're asking.

    intake manifold drain nut?

    Not sure about the early series, but in a series V, if that had a loop in it, it would be for the rocker arm oiler. That probably is what that part is. Just my thoughts.

    Received my calendar today. Once again, very nice job, Thank you for your effort. Not to worry if there are no longer any available. Mine came with a pretty bad printers error with a big tear in the Oct. Nov. page. Once again, not that big of a deal. Just wondering. I enjoyed seeing the...
