Hi David
            The kit is simply an insert to take the place of the original filter, and a double ended nipple which screws into the drain hole below the filter. I will need to have hoses made to suit. The insert and nipple are stamped "in " and "out". With luck there should be a photo attached, if not I will twist Noel's arm to post one. I did toy with the idea of fitting the top of the original filter to the conversion for asthetic reasons, hence this is included in the photo. Grant's Email address is grant@upcreek.com.au .Grant has also made patterns for the 2nd Series water pump housing , and has rebuilt pumps for Joe Wilson and Don Hume. Grant can also supply you with a reproduction rear end assembly for your W.O.Bentley if you require one.

I once sent out invitations to Australian Lancia Register members  to attend our annnual "Vincenzio's Birthday Dinner". I still cringe at the memory. Thanks for the grammatical correction, it might save me some pain in the future.

Cheers
Andrew

Stuart can you put these in the Technical section please, otherwise they might get lost and someone looking for the information might not be able to find it, must admit though I do the same Roll Eyes

It seems that Stainless Stephens Aprilia wasn't his only means of transport.
Just came across this snippet of information in the latest issue of our village News Smiley
Just as well I'd read this thread otherwise the name wouldn't have meant anything to me Grin

The image of Arthur Clifford Baynes (aka Stainless Stephen) pedalling his tricycle while wearing his bowler hat, stainless steel vest, flashing buttons and revolving bowtie is quite an intriguing one. Cedric Bristow was very helpfull with information about the history of the car. Cedric has a letter and a photo from Arthur which tells much of the early history of SS 4067, and also a number of photos and anecdotes from his period of ownership. With a bit of luck we should be able to update Noel's website with a more complete history of the car very soon. I am heading off to Noel's place early tomorrow morning to spend the weekend fettling the car. I think Noel has posted a short video of my first test drive in the car, it was good fun!.
