Subject: Spare wheel mounting
Unfortunately mine has gone missing. Being a 1940 car, the mounting is different to that on earlier V12s & LG6s. Those have a circular steel plate welded to the stay which bolts to the scuttle.

My one has a conical shaped aluminium casting (I think held on by a pinch-bolt) where the stay goes through the spare wheel cover. A flat steel plate is screwed to that, & that retains a captive nut. The hand-wheel, washer & conical retainer that fits the actual wheel centre I would imagine are all similar to those on the earlier models.

Please help if you can! Hoping to go to the AGM so could collect there.

Hello,
May be able to help although it may be the wrong type !
I saw what I think was a spare wheel mounting for the V12 at Beaulieu last weekend. I think it was on Mel Cranmer's stand. Underneath the table!
Try him.
Best of luck !

Hi Bill,

Many thanks, but already spoken to Mel as he was working on my car when this went missing.

I still need this, hopefully someone has one going spare, or can loan me one (against a deposit) so that I can have it copied. I can lend a fully restored Sanction 1 mounting in return, if that helps.

Please help!
