Sorry for reviving a very old thread. This could be a red herring but I also have a replacement diaphragm that does not lift very much in operation. The priming lever barely works as a result. As...

Question Original leather colours

Question: Brake parts for 401

Hi there,

Has anyone got any advice about buying brake system parts for a 401? I think I need a full set of cylinders.


Should I just go to Bristol Cars?

Thanks

Wow Greg, well done for finding some! I also have only one key for my Aerodyne, but the danger is alleviated somewhat by the lock being openable by just about anything (including a ring-pull)...

The manual tap is a good idea.

I cannot tell you definitively if the taxi tyre will fit in the spare wheel tray, but I would be very careful as it is pretty skinny. I recently bought 4 x 550HR16 Michelin X and 1 x 165HR16 Avon...

401/403 spare tyre queston

Do Michelin X tyres fit in the spare wheel bay of a Bristol 401/403? They seem to be a bit wider than the original cross plys.

(Specifically 550HR16 Michelin X)

Thanks for all views

Would anyone be kind enough to examine the attached photos of my filter and housing and hazard a guess as to what make it is? It is from a 401 (1951).

There are no visible marking or brand names....
