General Forum / Re: March Tourers exported to the USA

The body tubs on the wide track cars were the same as the standard ones; the additional width of the axles was covered by wider wings.  The only cars with a reproportioned body to suit the wide axles were the saloons and DHCs built on the 9' 11" chassis (rather than 9' 7" for the 4 seaters and 8' 10" for the 2 seaters).  There were two distinct varieties of 2 seaters, the early slab tank cars and the later round tail ones.  The round tail ones have a taller radiator.  I don't know whether the early two seaters shared the front end of the four seaters.

Whether Telecontrol dampers were standardised around 1937 I don't know, but they may have been removed from many cars during restoration as parts only became available again about 20 years ago.  They aren't shown as an option on the price lists I have seen, but AC were famous for letting customers specify what they wanted within the limits of the standard chassis/body combinations.

Sounds OK for a 'barn find'.

L800 is the 2 litre prototype, fitted with a pre-war DHC body.

There's a full version of this on the Members' Area of the website:

Members' Area -> Model Directory - > Ace -> Articles -> Ace and Aceca Brake Servicing

I'll replace it at some stage as it's one of the early scans without page breaks which doesn't make printing easy.

If you join the club you will get access to the registers which list the cars that used the engines so you will be able to see where the engine fits in the sequence.

CL - later engines that followed the UMB series; W = Wellworthy pistons;  7.5:1 - compression ratio.

It's not - I'll pass on details to Tom.  It must have been a very clean barn!

I understand the 2020 bookings have been transferred to 2021.  Whether it happens is questionable.

It's worth re-torqueing the cylinder head nuts a few times during the running in process.

Thanks Shaun - great initiative.   Should your email address be dot com rather than dot co dot uk?

The 'infographic' download at the bottom of the page is rather good.
