    And information on the oil pickup used in the TD? I know there was a strainer type and also a horn type pick up. I am wondering when they changed from one to the other.

    Agree with Daniel...but if you really must why not just a simple electric fan heater directed to the block, possibly via ducting, and for added luxury, on a timer plug?

    Bit cheaper than 400 quid.....

    My car - Y 5270 was originally Almond Green Metallic Matthew. When I had it resprayed I used the formula I have given on the colors page at and it was actually a very good match for the original paint chips we found.

    10 points John
    I just tried to explain simply without sounding too---

    cheers willy

    I've even resorted to , or the bank has, to having axles gun drilled to get a bit of whip in them but it costs big time

    A glass jar. I suggest a jar of raspberry jam of the correct diameter, then you would have something you could eat afterwards
    That'd be nice

    I put some 2mm rubber sheet between the mount and the hose and cable tied it to the hose. Stops the abrading of the hose.Cheers

    Peter: Thanks for pointing out the part numbers in the WSM. I cannot find these part numbers in the parts book.

    Still trying to find out evidence of the years.

    So far the brochures I have list Almond for 1950 and 1951 with beige interior and Woodland in 1952 and 1953 with green interior.

    Those look fantastic! I also wonder, do you plan to produce them for sale, or would you describe the materials and process?

  • Bruce Cunha27 January 2015

    Looks like posts have slowed down a bit, so I thought I would start a conversation on what are you currently working on.

    I am rebuilding the motor on my 67 BGT. My days are busy, so it is going slow Got the cam end thrust adjusted yesterday, so hopefully I will get the cam in and the crank gear/timing chain on shortly.
