A few Questions about DX 14/6 Light 1935
#1
Hi Guys i have a few questions about my old girl and i am also looking for a few bits 
some help, and advice and general pointing in the right direction would be amazing.

          1. what sort of oil pressure should i be expecting from the Car ? im getting around 30 psi at tick over 
          2. would the car have originally come with windscreen washers?
          3. what engine oil is best for them?
          4.  what oil do i need for the gearbox?

 Bits i am looking for 

          1. either a medallion for the top of the wing mounted side lights
          2. or a pair of side lights 
          3. a dynamo mine currently putting out only 8v, or someone can tell me what make and or amps i would need
          4. a wing mounted external mirror
          5. a fuel sender unit, my gauge currently always showing full
          6. a passenger side front interior door handle 

if anyone can help me source the missing parts or advise on the few questions, it would be amazing 

TIA Dave

1 30 is very good
2 No
3 SAE30
4 SAE 90 (diff, SAE140)

Go to 'Paul Beck' for Lucas medallions, mirrors and wiper arms and blades



A chassis number or a picture of the ID plate might confirm this??????

30psi is very good
No they did not have washers
SAE 30 is fine 
SAE 80
Side lights for the Dx are available fron 'completeautomobilist.com'
Fuel sender - These are available from 'ebay' ( Universal unit) tho it may be that you have a bad earth from the sender unit. The problem with the earlier cars is they were wood based cars  and the bodies mounted on rubber hence earth returns are very poor. All my cars now have new earthing straps fitted to most of the components to overcome this
I may have a handle, is it for the main window or the quarter light

The fuel gauge itself also needs a good earth (in addition to the sender unit)

the gauge continuously reads full, the previous owner told me there is no guts to the sender

i will pull it out and check then try some strong earths
