The beginnings of some coachwork...
   
   
Assembled the steering gear, just under three quarter turn on the wheel from full lock left to full lock right!

I was going to do this on my Swift,but decided against it as there was a long waiting list from the preferred repairer,and its very expensive.
   I decided on using Fernox central heating system cleaner ,sitting in rad then power washing out. I then used "alumaseal" for any small leaks as its a low pressure thermo siphon  system. Luckily my radiator was servicable.
   
   The name of the repairer escapes me but they are in the back of the "automobile" magazine.

I have two radiator's. the original one to the car, there is corrosion of the copper core, the second one is in a better state except for crushing at the bottom where vandles had tried to wrench it from its chassis. So I have to have a rebuild, has anyone had the work done and has any recommendations?

I was at Lowton Park yesterday, the ex Condon 1924 12hp was there now in the hands of Kieth Hill. I learned that a vintage radiator has been successfully rebuilt by a firm in Wakefeild, I'll make inquiries there.

I have not posted here for a while, but work has continued, fuel tank, windscreen, dash and instruments.
   
   
   
   Does anyone have a picture of the three seat "cloverleaf" model that was available 1919/20? I believe one is featured in an article in the Light Car and Cyclecar of the period.

Jonto, could you let me know the company that made your silencer. Send me a pm if necessary.
   
   Many thanks!

John.
   
   Just an Idea,  Fire a email with a link to Simon Taylor.  As well as being a Mine of information, associated with motor journalism,  he is also a ACOC Member ( 2.6 Ace ) and has a massive reference library.
   If he hasn't pictures and details, maybe he could put a request in a future issue of Classic & Sports Car...[;)]
   
   Will confirm his email address and tel number via email. [;)]
   
   Great thread, following with interest and looking forward to seeing this AC on the road.
   
   Cheers for Now
   
   Keith

Perhaps try the VSCC library at Chipping Norton?

   1919 LC&C and Cloverleaf model is on the list to investigate at my next visit to the British Library. They claim to have a copy of every British magazine ever published - and so far have not failed!
   
   Regret Burnard's papers are not in the ACOC Archive
