Hopefully someone can help .....please !

I am working on a 1st series Appia berlina and the tank sender is completely unusable - castings crumbled etc etc

Has anyone tried fitting an MGB unit - I have a memory that Don Cross said that it would fit. Online photos look promising, but if someone knows, that would be great

Which show? Perhaps we could have  two Augustas there.
Good to hear of the work done. It is a really nice car which I would have bought had it been available when  Paul kindly showed it and convinced me to get one.

Thanks Tim. I've flushed it through a few times and do get reasonable flow through it. Having been OK for a while it was losing water yesterday whilst driving, I can't tell where from but I wasn't sure that I didn't feel a few drops on my feet whilst driving (wearing sandals because of the heat), No sign of a leak when I got home but the water that was in the radiator must have gone somewhere! I'll look out for the Holts two stage kit as I've not seen that but have put a few bottle of radiator flush through it.

A brief update, sorry for the delay. The engine and gearbox are now back in. The bores were honed, the rods and crankshaft crack-tested and the latter also re-balanced by Paul Gardener Racing Engines - after a lot of research.
The old Brookands wheel that was on the car turned out to be pre-Bluemels (i.e before they started making them) and so was of the unwelded spoke type. So decided to avoid the risk of 'pinging' spokes in a shunt. Have never liked the original three-spoke (which Bluemels had in stock!), but have always loved early 30s Bentley wheels. It turns out the correct size for the Augusta is in fact the same size as the Aston Martin LeMans racing wheel - the design I'm told AM 'borrowed' from Bentley... Suits the car very well indeed.
The rev counter is in, and a completely remade fuel tank (rust...) with a new electric fuel sender also fitted. The re-made wheels and new Michelin tyres are also on. Lots more to be done quietly over the winter, but anyway Chris McPheat is hoping to get the car out to a show in Yorkshire in September.

I would try flushing to clear the core first as if it is not leaking it should provide good service un blocked. Holts do a 2 stage  purge kit if the garden hose cannot get a good flow through (if you allowed to use your hose that is….).

What absolutely has to be removed to enable the heater matrix to be replaced in an S2, or to put it another way, what is the least I can get away with removing to get the matrix out and a replacement in?

I'm pretty sure mine doesn't work effectively and would benefit from a replacement core but I'm hoping not to have to dismantle the whole interior if I can avoid it.

I agree with all of the previous comments, a great day, lovely weather, and a fantastic turn out of beautiful cars, roll on next year.

I could put you onto a guy with three Lancia Beta Coupe Volumexes plus spares that need saving Kevin?

Topside it looks in decent order, you'd want some better idea on the underside though wouldn't you.
But the interior looks great, which is far harder (and more expensive) to repair, maybe even terminally so if no material can be found.
Always liked the Gamma coupe styling, that one deserves a new owner, but not me!
I'm gearing myself up for my Flavia coupe as a swansong  Grin

I'll take the 815 one then please Tim, it will come in handy as my car is part dissasembled and not by me!
As I'm up in Lincolnshire I guess posting is the option, although I don't mind collecting if it's a reasonable trip...say less than 100 miles away!
