Author: MD Callaghan Monday, 01 September 2014Hi. I wonder if you or your readers would know what was the marque and model of the carb fitted to a 1904 Peugeot Type 57 engine number 5191L ? My friend Jean-Pierre is trying to get this car ready for the London/Brighton run in November and is not sure the carb that came with the car is correct.
Regards Malcolm Callaghan.

Dear Sir or Madam,
I have a question regarding a find that I made a few days ago...
I go metal detecting in the Oxfordshire area. A couple of days ago I found (usually I find coins - medieval, roman- and buttons and scrap metal) a folded peace of metal. I cleaned it up and left it in my flat...until my landlord (an retired antique dealer) saw that peace and asked me if he should straighten it. We took some pictures...and look what came out.
Do you have any idea what that is....obviously a car plaque but what for and which time. I guess pre war!?
Thanks for your help in advance.

Hello, A friend who is not computer literate sent me the attached images of three new old stock cylinders which he would like to have identified. He says that the bores are 3.375" in diameter & as can be seen in the images one cylinder has the word 'Frankland' written in chalk. Perhaps it is from an air cooled 'Franklin' car? I am sure that one of your website visitors will be able to identify these items.

Does any recognise these studs and nuts. They are extremely well made 1 3/16" (30mm) overall length; 11/16" (18mm) at long end and 5/16" (9mm) at short. They are 7/16" diam at 22tpi. This makes them UNF according to my reckoning, but the deep nuts are for 7/16 BSF spanner size. They may have hub or brake drum retaining application? Lagonda? Bentley?
Any help appreciated!
