Re: Cleaning up the threads in the F/R 12/4 hubs AM221/AO61.

If no one has the actual answer to this I suggest you buy some thread gauges, find out the tpi and profile and then get the appropriate thread file.

Sun roof

Hello all, The sun roof on my '36 light 12/4 Ascot has been blanked off at some time in the past. Has anyone got any drawings, photos, instructions or notes regarding the design of this please?

Re: No Spark - help!

Re: 1929 A12/4 side loading fuel tank

When I put my car back on the road after many years laid up the tank was heavily scaled and porous in places. I got some descaler and degreaser and a proprietary tank sealer for petrol.
