Regulator Fuse

20201018_170056.png Can anyone tell me the ratings of the two fuses in the regulator on a 1940 12hp as per the picture. I currently have a 13 amp 240v plug fuse in the bottom and a blown 35 amp with a piece of wire soldered across the ends at the top. Cannot find any info in the workshop manual or ...

Re: Oil Pressure Gauge Pipe

Hi Luli Thank you for the tip about Meteor Spares. I have been in touch with a local hose company and they are sure they can attach a new hose to my fittings so I will try that first. I have already made several visits to your website and it will provide valuable information as the restoration progr...

The fitting is longer where it screws into the block as it extends down and locates the cam bearing.
...............so clearly a fitting the supplies the oil pressure to the hose but doesn't extend down to locate the bearing will lead to problems with the bearing at some point?

Re: Oil Pressure Gauge Pipe

Thanks Tony,

I appreciate you taking the time to reply and include the photos.

Yours looks identical to mine so I think I'll go down the replacement hose keep the fittings route.

Had a look at your car in your post. A real credit to you....just hope I can get there. ;)

Regards

Re: Oil Pressure Gauge Pipe

Thanks Tony, I'd really appreciate that.

I've also reallsied I gave the wrong thread type it's actually 1/8 BSF not 1/4 BSP at the guage end.

I didn't think the adaptor would be critical to the rear cam bearing but better safe than sorry.

Re: Oil Pressure Gauge Pipe

Tony Thank you for your reply. Yes I had considered the 'new hose on old fittings' route and that was probably going to be my next option. The adaptor in the block certainly looks original but my concern was that if I removed it I might somehow affect the integrity of the camshaft rear bearing but a...

Oil Pressure Gauge Pipe

I have a 1940 Twelve and the oil pipe feed is 7/16 BSF block end and 1/4 BSP into the back of the gauage. I can get a pipe made up by doing away with the adaptor (7/16 BSF to 1/4 BSP) that screws into the block but the parts book calls this adaptor a "Oil Feed & Rear Cam Bearing Locator". How critic...
