Right now there is only a tube connecting the output to the input. If I take this tube off and replace it with a same-sized tube route to the oil filter, I don't see where the oil flow will increase. If there is some flow restriction, it must be in one of the adapters.

Yes, and when you see it beside an original Roadster the rear part of the bodywork is different. Nevertheless, a great looking car and well built. Provided it's provenance is truthfully disclosed, no problem. Does anybody really drive these? B.

OK I'll try to get a pic tomorrow. The motor and gearbox are one unit and are purpose built to drive wipers. I'll try to show how it's attached to the actuating mechanism. It looks like it would be easy to fabricate something like this to replace the vacuum mechanism. Most of these Preslite units come with a 2 speed motor (for two wiper speeds) and will generally run on 12-36V. No, I don't know why.

Cheers B

I think the fake body claim is symptomatic of this old car bubble. Drive the car and you will know immediately that it is a fake. The open car chassis used some different parts than the closed cars.

Well spotted Mal. Yes, it's the same car. Be interesting to follow the thread.

Barry Smith knew all about this car. I think he imported it originally then decided against trying to restore it. Some work was done on it later, but not a full restoration. The engine was rebuilt locally but some problems apparently followed.

Cheers

Brian

Check out plate 29E in the 55-6 parts manual for what should be there on a LHD car.

Not knowing how your heater is installed, no idea how they might have modified or eliminated any of those components. Assume there would still be ducting connecting between a short adapter tube with flapper valve and the long straight section so the regular knobs would still work to shut off the air coming in from the front of the car.

Unless the heater is blocking it on the inside, if something is missing that you can see the plastic I would block it off temporarily so as to not to have your engine fumes enter the car. The regular air vents do a quite adequate job in the fume department by picking up the exhaust from the car in front of you and funneling it in. They don't need any more help.

Thanks, I'll chase up Max Merritt re the ducting. Would be nice to keep it original if it's not hideously expensive. I'm assuming all the electrical tape on the right hand duct hides a mess. I can see the plastic grille on the left hand side opening in the firewall. Was there supposed to be ducting on that side in the engine bay? Mine looks fairly original but maybe it was only in non- air con cars? Also spotted in your pics the location of the TPN. Will check mine for Dave Czirr B.
