  1. These Lexus are clever...hot water and music !!!!!
  2. It's not in Friday's sale but there's still time if it hasn't been sold. I think they'll give the sale price over the phone. At £5000 hammer/estimate price there's another £400 commission to add on. Wilson's are pretty steep since taking over from SMAG Auctions. I wish I still had the Sunbeam.
  3. Phil, some good info there but I'm not into sports cars, just thought someone may be looking for one so it may have been "a not to be missed car". Whenever I'm asked "do you not fancy a sports car" I always say no, I had motor bikes in my teens and none of them were under 500ccs. For the record.....Sunbeam 500ccs in line twin/shaft drive, Triumph Tiger 100, 500ccs parallel twin, Norton 650ccs Dominator and lastly Norton 750 Dunstall Atlas.
  4. SC 430

    There's an SC 430 02 reg, 54,000 miles, estimated at £5000 at Wilson's Auction in Newcastle tomorrow night ( Wednesday 7/12 /2017 ). Just in case anyone's interested as I don't think there's many about. Members 31 467 posts Name: Jim Lexus Model: Lexus LS 430 2002 Year of Lexus: 2002 Location: Durham Report post Posted just now

  6. Another option could be......The oil cooler built into the radiator fails so you could retro fit an external after market oil cooler then there's no need to change the original radiator, just link the outlets at the bottom with suitable oil resistant "rubber" pipe and jubilee clips..
  7. there's a set of DHP alloy wheel centre caps on Gumtree

  8. My regular garage sourced them from his supplier and fitted them as a new brake cable was needed as well and definitely a job requiring the hoist. Brake cable, as seen above, came from Lexus (£60) as we couldn't find one at all on the web.
  9. All the parts are available after market without going to Lexus.
  10. The parking brake is just an old fashioned, low tech drum system with the same old problems. Dirt and dust clogging things up and it can seize with the results seen in the attached photo. In this instance the cable was seized in the lining. The casting bolted to the back plate can break cos you can get a lot of weight on it with your left leg. Even when new the friction linings on the shoes are small and thin so, as Steve says, wheel off, caliper off, disc off and clean and lube all moving parts.
  11. This is my Queen on Coronation Day June 1953 and that's me to her right as the real Duke of Edinburgh
  12. There was a member on here a few years back who ran LS400, I think it was a MK3, as a taxi who came from Liverpool, just can't think of his name.
  13. I did my own compilations with no gaps, spaces or DJ spiel, only continuous music and still play them, mostly 50's to 70's. They were recorded from LP's and Fluff Freemans Pick of the Pops onto a Revox77 and edited to a Sony cassette deck using TDK Super Avilyn tape via a Naim amp and Linn Sondek, which I regret selling. I bought the Revox for £250 and sold it 23 years later for £250
  14. Hi rock on, Good to hear it's still running well but only to be expected as it looked a really good car when I saw it nearly 2 years ago. Since then I've had a 51 Merc C class which I sold after 4 weeks, a 53 Merc E 200 which developed a brake problem and the dealer refunded my money after 2 weeks of ownership, a 99 Honda Legend which was sold after 3 weeks when I found a gearbox oil leak and the LS430 went last Nov after nearly a years ownership. Since Feb, I've been running an 07 Merc E280 V6 3 ltr petrol auto in beautiful nick, nice and smooth and quiet, but doesn't compare with the refined silence of an LS
