Ram / Sagar / Pawan,

The reason for the bigger cap is that. Its a Oil Filler Cap cum Breather. If you see there is no outlet for the crankcase fumes to come out in this engine. On our Fiats it is on the right hand side of the rocker cover. A similar cap is present in Petrol Jeeps too.

Shyam.

A BIG thanks once again

Shyam and Arun1100 have been extremely helpful and instrumental during this restoration. I owe a BIG one to these guys.

Received the front Bumper guards from Royal Mail UK. This was ordered by Stanher

Note : My kid saw the Herald today and decided to wear the same combo shirt

Manish,

I think you missed the Greeny Smily on my original querry.

I don't know if you are aware, I am from that age who has had the fortune to drive outt of dealers show room in a Herald and lived with it for the next 18 years. Yes sir, Herald specially MK II is something I know very well.

Thanks any way

Best Regards & Drive/Ride Safe

Ram

This reminds me of the car that we used to have as a kid. Maynot be the same but very similar. Was blue and white in colour (not the ones shown in this thread but a different blue). It was a two door and the front seats folded to let me get into the back. Really brought back a lot of memories.

OK, firstly, sorry I missed noticing this early on- it looks like the front overrider (bumperguard) mounts have been cut short to accomodate the smaller guards. The originals are slightly longer, here are a couple of pics. for reference:

1967 MK1 Standard Herald-Restored-img_4815.jpg

Also the spout for the petrol tank needs to be refixed to the original position- supposed to be at a slant on the left top corner of the tank. I have an unmodified herald tank lying at home, will take a pic. of that and show you for better reference.

Simply awesome. The car looks good and with that shade it looks even better(period). Are you also fitting the decklid luggage carrier. If so then this car would be one of a kind. Kudos to you and Arun for the parts he got for you which complete the looks of the car.( similar to which it must have been in its hey days)

Thank you very much.

Work gatherd up with a very slow pace over the last week.

But since festivals around the corner, and myself having a break from work, got few parts and Mechanical work on the Herald started all over again

First things to attend to are the Brakes, well, as i had mentioned earlier, the master cylinder had got jammed useless, the wheel cylinder kits are almost gone. Could find few spares today, hopefully, the brakes should be done by end of day.

Nice going , pavan! I see now you're having fun with the brake and clutch cylinders as well!

The kits we get here are realy unreliable! The local shops never get the TVS ones even though they are still being made new! They say this brand is all we've got etc.!

Also missed noticing earlier,



Why the black rubber beading around the front grille area? Heralds here never had one there, please take it off, it mars the whole look of the front, ruining your effort!

sir,
u are correct. Heralds never had such a beading.
Possibly there could be gap between the bonnet and the grille and the beading is used to fill up the gap

Pavan,

Shyams suggestion above is very true.

I am attaching the grill of a Herald from a period photo for your reference.

In my opinion if you are trying for a concourse finish, you must get the gril to original spec as well.

All the best

Best Regards & Drive/Ride Safe
