This has naturally enough been a topic of intense conversation in the rr.b mail group. The informed consensus seems to be (at this stage) that BMW has the upper hand, in that they designed the V-12 f

Packard was assimilated by the Studebaker Corporation of South Bend, Indiana, in the early 1950's. The last Packard left the line in 1957 (or so), Studebaker staggered on until the late 60's. They ar

About three weeks ago I attended a 2-day seminar on bodywork techniques conducted by Mick Lewis of Missisauga, ONT. He began working for H.J. Mulliner in 1956, also worked for Cobra and Rolls Royce,

You would be wrong. A coil is an inductor. It stores energy in a magnetic field, not in an electric field. As soon as the points open, that magnetic field collapses, no matter whether there is a path

Yes, there is a key, and I'm not referring to the one that locates the wheel on the shaft. It is kind of oblong with rounded ends. It sits flush with the outer casing, so is very hard to detect. It i

Well, there's more to the story. The TD wheel is attached to a shaft which slides up and down on a splined steering column. The key to which I refer above keeps the shaft on the splined column, and h

They use different solutions for different metals. You can't use alkaline on aluminum. Dip tanks have been around forever. Old-timey engine shops use them to clean out blocks before rebuilding, etc.

I doubt very seriously that this is true. Rebuilding a B power plant is no more expensive than rebuilding any other 4-banger, and considerably less than alternatives with more cylinders. By the time

You can also (much more easily) cadge a 50 cc syringe and a short length of tubing and slip the juice in under the rubber bellows. Just loosen the clamp holding the rack side on. A. B. Bonds

You can certainly decarbonise the tops of the pistons, an old and noble British tradition. In many pre-war2 cars it was expected that one would lift the lid and decarbonise every 10,000 miles or so.
