Re: 1934 Spark/ Ignition Issue

I have had a few condensors fail on me whilst driving, the car just dies and wouldn't start again. I now always carry a spare one with me in the glove box just in case.

Re: 1935 Coupe front 6 dash screws and mounting?

the beaded material looks like piping used on the edge of seats and the like, that piping only has a 3mm bead on it.


you can buy piping cord and cover it in cotton for a similar look I guess.

Kube I think you must be one of the few people about who is happy with raising the height of your car by changing the springs :)

Re: My most recent acquisistion

That roadster looks lovely. I prefer whitewalls on it. I think they go with the darker paint and the light top.

Re: condensor keeps going bad

Terry the cap I use is an original Lucas cap - you don't get repro caps for the lucas dizzy.


Its not easy to get the cap on and off, I can probably get pics of it but it wouldn't be easy.

Re: Wiring Fuse Block for 12V Accessories

the large post on the left just acts as a common feed. the large post on the right hand side would be the earth. the screws on the back of the fuses go to the accessory.
