Guys.

I'm looking for contact details of anyone who can source a JackAll jacking system.

This is the hydrolic jacking system that featured on all four wheels of upmarket cars in teh thirties.

Basically the idea is that when a particular tyre needs to be changed one could use press a button or something similar and the whell would be jacked up hydrolically.

I want to find out if this kind of a susyem could ber fitted on a modern SUV.

The reason is that yeaterday I was out in the desert with some friends, my deflator looked like it was not functioning as required as a result of which the deflation was much more than I wanted which resulted in a pop out. It was such a tiresome job to manually jack up the car so am looking for alternates that are more easy to use.

Those baloon jacks you connect to the exhaust and inflate to lift the car are not very reliable so this JackAll idea sounded good.

Open to sugessions on this.

A little correction to my previous post:

Sorry, actually I meant foundations/engine mounts for the block:

Engine Mounts

but I was just told that they wouldn't need changing, since I do have the silent block rubber on metal bushes.

Almost all of it manufactured by the best in the world in original packing, imported during the difficult licence Raj days.

I had informed quite a few collectors and vintage and classic car enthusiasts of this priceless hoard. But to my knowledge none of those I had informed had picked up anything. I was lucky to accquire some very difficult to find bits including windscreens, carburettors, meters, headlight and tailight assembys, brake and clutch parts etc. at almost throw away prices. A few months later I was informed that a major portion of this stock was purchased by a local scrap trader. By the time I was able to locate the buyer, the lot had been segregated, all the alloy scrap!! unused Zenith, Solex, Weber, Carter, Stomberg carburettors, German, American pistons, rings, main bearings, the list was endless had already been sold to a melting unit. There was a heap of crankshafts, camshafts, gearwheels, diff parts even some meters, clocks etc. awaiting despatch.

The total stock was about 12 to 14 truckloads or more. I had initially tried to convince the dealer to to put a stock list on the net and try and sell the spares online, but they needed to free the space in their godowns and also did not have the patience to go through the whole process. I did think of buying the whole lot if I could find a partner for this venture, becasue it was beyond me both in terms of finance and logistics. Unfortunately nobody wanted to invest money on some old junk.

To date my inability to rescue this priceless hoard of spares is one of my greatest disappointments, the least about the money that could have been made, but that it was an irreplaceable loss to the vintage and classic car enthusiasts community. I would be overjoyed if anyone was able to save even a part of this hoard, because I was informed that the stock from the Coimbatore branch was bought by someone for Bangalore. would anyone have any info???

Hi, I think that you are talking about Popular.
The good news is that not all the parts were scrapped. I managed to buy a lot of their parts, and so did a lot of my friends. And I did get a lot of their parts catalogues. But yes, they had so many parts that really no one could have bought all in one go. And they had branches all over India, Mumbai, Chennai, Coimbatore. I got parts from all these places.
So cheer up, all was not scrapped.

Dear Sunigee,

Scrapping, selling or getting rid of old cars is good for the eco system and economy. Just imagine if all the 22,000 Ford Model T's were to have survived. Then they would have not much value, there would be more space problems etc. and the fun of collecting, finding these cars and having something exclusive is gone. So forget what has happened in the past. If you start today, go ahead and build up your collection to the limit you can afford, do not overstretch. And enjoy the hobby, discover parts and cars that are still lying around. And there is stuff, believe me!

Cheers harit

Default Fiat elegant tail-lamps

Greetings!

Among the few old fiat spares I have still left at home, are this pair of original Elegant tail-lamp assemblies (USED.)

Rather rough but definitely seem serviceable to me still.

Both missing the upper (indicator) lenses.

Anyone interested can pm me.

Jagdish has lot of knowledge, but, no parts!! He promises and doesnt deliver. He will invariably tell you to come back, saying he will look and that never happens. I guess he is on the the verge of retirement. I have been wanting a gasket set and a fuel pump, and he keeps saying he is trying to locate them from someone in Gujarat!!

Well, I have an old (early s2) aluminium tail-lamp housing, the bar (I presume you mean the bulb holder?) was totally corroded etc. so I took it off and threw it away.
The housing needs buffing.

And I think you can contact sidman for a spare horncast.

I thought the one on your scooter is in good shape though?
