NEW Girling brake drums. The 3 pegs on these are RIVETED IN as the originals were. and NOT held in with screws. We have 16 only of these done this way  95 each


Our new 1 5/16 splash fed crank. These have been designed closer to the originals as forged cranks can get close to the centre cam. And people want the oil pick-ups to line up with the jet. We have corrected all this. As well the pick-ups are the correct size and the oil hole is in the middle of the pick-up. As asked for we have also given the journals a larger fillet for strength. Also they have more clearance at the rear of the crank so they will fit a magneto crankcase without modifications. Our price is 1,050


Here are our NEW 1 5/16ths con rods. Ready to be white metalled. Our price 875 PER SET


Here are a NEW set of shelled con rods to fit 1 5/16ths cranks. We first made these 12 years ago, they sold well. And ALL are still running well in their cars. We now have the chance to make them again with a new manufacturer. Looking to make batches in May. We are taking PRE -ORDERS, which may bring production forward. Price per set including shells will be 975


It's been 10 years since we have done reconditioned front spring shackles. They were always popular, but to time consuming for us to keep up with. So I thought it was about time to do some more. I've done 30 sets at 90 a set. Once they have gone it may be another 10 years for some more. I've also done a few shackle repair pin sets at 25 a set.


NEW reverse facing starter motor housing. I only have 3 of these. Price 180


From the latest batch of Hadley cranks. Is a new fully counterbalanced pressure fed crank. I have THREE for sale, we only get the chance to have a batch made every 4 to 5 years. So once sold out, there will be another long wait.


NEW set of 1 1/2 Hadley rods. They come with a new set of shells. Again we only have 3 sets, and they are rarely made.


Drag Links


I've had a small batch of drag links made for the Austin 7. Due to a large number of the original being corroded, bent, or damaged. These are fully built up with a new set of ball, cup, and springs. They have already been greased. The rod just needs painting and fitting.


Our price 75

Slipper pistons just in.

I was hoping to have a full range but the 56.25 were missed from the order.
So we have a full shelves of:-
56mm equivalent to standard 2.2
56.50mm equivalent to plus .20
56.75mm equivalent to plus .30
57mm equivalent to plus .40
57.25mm equivalent to plus .50
57.50mm equivalent to plus .60
57.75mm equivalent to plus .70
58mm equivalent to plus .80


I have also stocked in plenty of spare ring sets, so our customers have peace of mind. They can change ring sets in the future if anything gets damaged.

Coming soon:-


We are having our own sports aluminium valve chest covers made - 30 each. Also NEW aluminium valve chest thumb knobs - 6 each



Short rear damper arms, It's been a while since we last made these,  for low frame chassis, set of 4 pieces.


Price 35

Brake connecting rods.
It's been while since I've made the, I've been told other suppliers have made these over the last few years but have mistakenly copied the rod that was fitted to the 1939 to 1939 cars. So the rod is only 11 inches long. Our new connecting rods are made at 14 inches long. That's 15 inches including the yoke. These were originally made to fit all Austin 7s from 1923 to 1935. And if you want to fit it to the 1936 to 1939. You can shorten the rod.

We are supplying them in two ways, the first with the late type adjusting nut, price 18.00 or second with the brass wing nut for 27


NEW, Ulster,chummy,nippy. Steel rad surrounds. Complete with filler neck, and strengthening supports inside. Best quality. Price 500

Head Gaskets. Being un satisfied with head gaskets we have stocked from other suppliers. I have had my own tooling made and high compression gaskets are now in stock. These are made closely the Austin originals. All hole sizes are same as original. Gasket thickness is the same. We have a good turnover edge on the copper, with NO gaps. Our price 26 each or we are doing packs of 5 at a 10% trade discount.
