What about the windscreen wipers that worked on a vacuum system. The faster you drove the slower the wipers worked. :lol:
Or the wipers on my 1937 Vauxhall Fourteen, cable driven from the camshaft, which went faster the faster you drove.

This car also had cable brakes, which seldom pulled the car up straight under heavy braking. Happy days!

Tappets! I wish I had a pound for every one I’ve set. It must be thousands.

Wow this thread is turning into a real nostalgia trip, blimey I feel old.

Gallon of petrol and two shots of two stroke oil - 2/6p (two and six pence) or in new money 13p

Tappets - there was always one tricky one wasn't there

Arrgghhh.... Yes my 100E had these - a real pain going up hill in the rain as you had to occasionally lift your right foot up to enable a wipe...
And the 100E was a side valved engine - what a pain adjusting tappets!

I taught my wife to drive in ours, plus she used it on the test and the examiner tried to fail her on miss-use of the gears until she explained it only had 3 and she *wasn't* pulling away in second! :lol:
He didn't like the car from the off... As it was hand painted bright orange covered in aphid legs where they had landed on it in the drying sun :?
