    Any other pics of that car?

    Sebastian, what is that black/silver unit in front of the fuel filter ?
    Mr. Z,

    That is the fuel pressure regulator..

    I am running an electric pump and it it puts out about 9 psi continuous.

    I put the regulator in front of the filter because of the return line..

    The regulator is set to 4.5 psi to make the Carter AFB happy and it maintains 4.5 psi even with the return line flow.

    Fantastic work Dick! That's what I always hoped this car would look like.

    The dash was done at a local independent shop - you just need to find an upholsterer who likes a challenge <g>

    Dick, Thank you for the comment about Omaha. That is the one day from all the International Meets I've attended that sticks as glue in my memory. I certainly didn't lose anything by closing up the vendor spaces, but I gained so much in spending the afternoon with you and Studedude on that trip. I was the one honored.
    You are not often wrong, Frank, but in this instance, you are.

    I was the one that was honored!

    Truly a special meet for me, in so many ways!

    totally agree, Mr. S!

    when i saw the pic, my first thought was the rear looked too low. i thought maybe it was "just me"...

    It's looking better Dick. Now you need to remove the positive cable and coat it with same stuff you put on the negative cable. You know, so they match. Will you're at it straighten up that negative cable clamp bolt. It's at 45 degrees and needs to be straight.

    I would agree with you that the car is close to stock ride height. It does have overload springs in the back, but I think they just make up for 50 years of regular spring sag.

    To tell you the truth, I'm not crazy about the slightly nose up stance of a stock Lark. I may see what I can do to get the rear end up another inch or so. I think I'd be happier with it that way.

    OK...I've hijacked my own thread (is that legal? ) with all this Daimler talk, so I might as well keep going.

    I found this today...

    August 29: Gottlieb Daimler patents the first motorcycle on this date in 1885



    There are actually two companies with the Daimler name.

    An English company (pronounced dame-ler) that built limited addition motor cars since the late 1890's...most noted for building cars for the Royal Family. They were purchased by BSA (of firearm and motorcycle fame) in 1910 and sold to Jaguar in 1960.

    And a German company (pronounced dime-ler) most noted for their association with Mercedes.

    The two companies are not related in any way...other than they are both named after the "father" of the internal combustion engine, Gottlieb Daimler.

    Thank God for that. The world needs more Steinkamp restored cars. They are simply exquisite. Can't wait to see what that Daimler looks like when you're done. Keep the right hand drive - maybe Bob will buy it as a back-up for his Zip Van. You can never have too many spare mail delivery vehicles when you are a rural carrier.
