    Originally Allards were fitted with two 6 Volt Batteries connected in series to give 12 Volts, Although the starters are 6 Volts they seem to handle 12V OK.
    My recommendation is to fit two 12Volts and connect in parallel. Varta make a battery which fits the battery box. When the engine plays up you cannot have too much cranking power and two 12’s make jump starting much easier. Note. As well as the batteries being earthed the engine should also be earthed.

    Ben you need a Ford flathead V8 puller that has a lip at the end which fits in the grooves in the hub. At the outer end of the puller is a large bolt which has to be tightened against the end of the half-haft having first loosened the nut on the end of the shaft and undoing it so it protects the end of the threads. Then sharply strike the end of the bolt with a 4lb club hammer. In between blows make sure the bolt is tight. It is shock that removes the hub, pulling will not do it.

    Charles Gough had his Girling shocks overhauled by Stevsons and was not impressed.
    I suggest Recon and Return in Leicester. Pecky has the number. Or Vintage Shock Absorbers in Sanderstead, Surrey.
