Hello forum! My Hillman Mk2 has got a modern battery that needs replacement. According to the parts manual it originally was fitted with a "L-WD-2" , or a "L-WD-4" or a "BNW7/9A" battery. The Hillman has got a 1Volts, negative ground system. My question : Has anybody got photo's / drawings and measurements of these batteries ? With the photo's and measurements I can go and search for a modern batterie that looks as good as possible. Anyone has a link to a "vintage repro" battery seller? Thanks in advance !
Hello all, I'm wondering if anyone can offer any advice please? At some point in the next couple of months I need to change the clutch in my Austin Tilly, or at least take it out for refurbishment. This is the first time I'll be undertaking a major task on my own so I was wondering if anyone has any advice or tips. Also does anyone have any recommendations for anyone who could supply a new clutch or reline the clutch plate in the Bristol area? Any advice gratefully received. Thank you.
Hello forum! I'm Frederik Loggen from the Netherlands. I'm a keen collector of WW2 militaria for over 25 years, mainly ww2 militaria from the commonwealth. In the collection I've specialised in ww2 rations, tabacco and female commonwealth services uniforms (like WAAF, ATS, WRNS, CWAC, etc.). Some people will know as "Naaficook". I own for over 13 years a 1941 Hillman Utility Mk2a and a Mk5 bicycle. Some years ago I was lucky to find a neglected Mk2 Daimler Dingo in the UK and I've started restoring it this year. The Dingo has been used as a safety-car in the 1960/'70s on the Coventry Bee's speedwaytrack, hence the currently yellow and black striping on it. Unfortunally due to lack of maintenance is suffered some problems in the 70's and was put aside to be "fixed"......what never happenend until today. It suffered severly from storage outside (rotten instruments, floorboards and bins) and a vandalised interior as the rotating commanders seat and some hatchhandles are completely gone! Luckely the hull, engine and chassies are in good condition and dismanteling is in full process and will be completed within a few weeks. I will need lots of help in the future, I will keep you all informed and will post photo's in the future. Happy motoring too you all ! Frederik Loggen (a.k.a. Naaficook)
My Standard Tilly leaks around the crankshaft and timing cover. I think an oil deflector might be missing. I need to remove the fan pulley. I have read that you need to remove the starter motor and jam the fly wheel so that the retaining nut on the fan pulley can be removed. Are there any other ways of doing this? I have read you can use straps to prevent the fan pulley from moving so the retaining nut can be removed. Many thanks ----- Original Message -----
