  1. Hi, Its years ago now but I remember someone one here had a quantity of NOS Daimler Ferret choke or more correctly 'cold start device cables'. Mine is beyond repair so I'm on the lookout for a new or serviceable one please. Just message me if you think you may be able to help. Many thanks Jim
  2. Thanks Richard for your explanation. You've got me thinking now. Cheers Jim
  3. Hi Richard, Sorry I cannot offer any more info but I'm watching with interest. I had always thought the MW and OY had the same carb, given they had identical engines. May I ask the reason for your question? Cheers Jim
  4. Hi Adam, I could be wrong but my understanding is that HGV's built before 1960 do not require the driver to have an HGV ticket/operators licence, as long as driven for pleasure and unladen. p.s always fancied one myself :). Jim
  5. 5 years and over 50% price increase, I will be sticking with my points. Thanks for the update though.
  6. Hi, What price are you thinking pls? jim
  7. Hi, Whilst I am far from an expert, by the looks of your adjusters you appear to have bands with plenty of life left. First gear adjuster nut may be stiff, adjust it and see if you cure the slip! Regards Jim
  8. Hi, No, but I'm still interested in getting one.
  9. Hi All, I am on the hunt for the screw clamps that fasten the sand channels to the front of a ferret. Ideally a pair but will take a single if anyone has a spare one. Thanks, Jim.
  10. Trying to get on with my slightly basket case Daimler Ferret. I need a fuel pipe, namely the one from the left hand side fuel tank outlet to the switch over tap. Of the two pipes which feed the switch over tap its the shorter of the 2, (directly below the tank). Any help would be much appreciated. Jim.
  11. I will have them pls, pm sent.
  12. Now then everyone. Problem solved. It was, after all just a case of a leaking union on the capillary vacuum pipe from the carb to the dizzy. These engines just will not run correctly if there is a leak on this pipe. Thanks once again to all for their help in 'brain storming', great guys indeed. Jim.
  13. Hi Pete, Thanks for your advise. I agree with you that it would sound to be leaking air into the intake manifold. However, surely if this was the case it would not start and idle exactly as before, no mixture adjustment or use of choke either, also the brake servo has tons of vacuum when I touch the brake pedal! Very puzzling but whatever it ends up being I think it must be on or near the manifolds. Thanks again, Jim.
