  1. Hi to all, Replacing gearbox and diff seals in the next month..as they are both weeping.. Would anyone have recommendations on best oils to use..i seem to recall comments on the forum regarding oils that make gear change smoother and diff noise less..not that anything is wrong, but, would appreciate experiences from members..rather than buying the usual brands.. thanks Nigel H
  2. Nice Roger, great idea.. Nigel H
  3. Spanish sailing ships were very economical in their day.. About 250,000 miles to the galleon..
  4. Does that work similar to Bat-Anti shark Spray ?..kapow!!
  5. Thanks David, Just wondered if anybody had stamps similar to original. Would be glad to pay someone for the service if so.. Nigel H..
  6. Keith, the ideal charge rate is 'capacity' divided by 8 so your 10% is not so far off..you should charge at no more that 'capacity' divided by 5..and not for extended periods. A battery boffin described it to me as 'charge memory'..the rate that gives the deepest charge condition(best density of electrons alignment)..not too fast , not to slow.... Sealed for life was also an interesting development, basically to stop topping up of fluids and hence eventually the battery would die. Many of the employees at the battery company would flush their car battery annually and refill with
  7. Hi Would anyone know where I may be able to get Chassis and Body plates stamped with correct letter stamp styles? Also a source for a new body plate (half round at both ends) Thx Nigel H.
  8. Hello Keith The good old lead acid battery was the mainstay of the world for several decades. sadly, someone realised that involving calcium in the equation allowed smaller cheaper batteries to be developed giving enhanced starting characteristics.. However, calcium based batteries need as ROBH said, more than 14,8 volts to charge effectively which most older version chargers simply don't provide.(typically 13.5 - 14v), Especially when fully discharged, Some 40 years ago I began my career as a design draughtsman for a battery company. One of the older designers at that time sa
  9. Thank you all.. Time to get the meter out and find out what all these spare connections are connected too.. Will be wiring in to main beam with relay. I believe fogs can be a separate switch..as per modern cars..dont quote me.. Nigel.
  10. JJC I have an RB106/2 dated apr 64 if you want it..was working perfectly when I took it off the car. Its been boxed up in the Garage..generally good condition..needs a clean.. Don't want anything for it..just cover postage, if you are interested let me know. I'll package it and send u a PM with the post cost.. Nigel H
  11. Hi Not sure there is an exact science here with all the variables. When I bought my car the PO mentioned the surrey (fabric) top was tight to fit.. the cover fitted and located well at the centre of the front screen, but was very difficult/tight at the doors. I tweaked the centre frame ends you mentioned, as it was high on the windows as well and hence very tight.. One of the press studs on the rear window frame had been replaced and moved slightly backwards which also didn't help at the front. Nigel H.
  12. Jags and Healeys running 2" SU's were offered with 'red'(common on many SU carb sizes) and particularly 'black' springs too, only 4.5 oz, probably to improve the lift problem mentioned earlier? Nigel H.
