Keep your eye out for a replacement gearbox,rebuilding the one you have with worn gears and the input shaft would be a was...

Re: Wheel painting

Yes,best doing them yourself,only have them blast cleaned if there is deep rust and no solid surface to work on,pick a nice summer week and do them in the garden.
I used Dulux weather shield as a top coat and it,it has lasted very well and is easy to touch up.

Re: Starter Motor 16/6

Re: No Spark - help!

Have you tried putting a couple of gallons of fresh petrol in the tank and going for a run? You may be supprised at the difference.Modern fuel looses its volatility.

Re: Hood frame on 12/4

Had a 1928 Clifton for 17 years and no problem with the mechanism,are you sure yours is an original frame and not one remanufactured by some one?
( my wife would not have another Clifton because she was always aware of someone "helping" to put down the hood and getting their fingers caught).
