    Hello John

    If you change to a ‘Flexolite’ spin off oil filter conversion, they do an adapter/take off for an oil cooler. I appreciate that you will still have to mount the cooler radiator buy you will be half way there. Have a look at their website.

    Thanks to the diligent efforts of Laurence Jones, an old photograph of 19 PKE has surfaced and this is now in the ‘Gallery’.

    A photograph has been added to the Gallery showing the petrol reserve switch. It is on the last page of the Gallery. If the photo is ‘clicked’ it enlarges to show the full page. Photo courtesy of Laurence Jones.

    The photo is taken from the Supplementary Handbook as it was an extra on all spec. cars. The original standard wiring loom would have had a connection for the switch behind the dashboard and further wiring in the boot for the reserve unit.

    Over the years the reserve unit in the petrol tank deteriorates. For this reason the club now has a facility to repair the reserve unit. Please use the contact page to obtain details.

    Hello Tim
    The main source of wire wheels is MWS. When I fitted wires to my SP 10 years ago I purchased from SC Parts who still sell them. I suspect the wheels had the same source, but I found SC cheaper than MWS. The choice of finish is a matter of taste. Stainless steel is now popular however whilst it has obvious advantages it does seem to sparkle as much as chrome. The painted finish is the cheapest.
    I fitted 5″ x 15″ tyres which are a good compromise although for the purest 4 1/2″ may be preferable.
    My tyres are Fulda which I believe are only available now in low profile, but Vredstein sprint classics 185 x 15 are now popular as are Michelin XAS in 180 x 15 size. In most cases these should not cause problems with rubbing on the body. Avoid low profile and fit 80 aspect ratio.

    Another option is Turrino wire wheels, the company is I believe run by a SP owner which is extensively modified.

    The dealers name is Harry Clark. I have had extensive email correspondence with him and he is very nice guy.

    The club has full details of both the cars and as I have said before we have filled in many gaps. I understand that the present intention is for Harry to sell the advertised black car and retain the white one for his personal collection.

    I am sure that he would appreciate input from a local SP250 enthusiast.

    The club have been liaising with the dealer to provide him with the cars history.

    You are quite correct regarding a second SP in the photo. The dealer has also purchased another car from Canada Chassis No. 100469 which is white, and I assume this is the car behind the Audi. Well spotted.
