Sir,

I was very interested to read Mr. March’s letter in your January issue.

I also have a 1926 (10.8 b..p.) two-seater Clyno (de luxe model), which I bought new in March of that year. The car has been continuously in commission except for the years 1942-46 when we were laid up en cause de guerre.

According to my log book 70,000 miles have been reached, and to date the bigends, gearbox, etc., have not been opened up for any adjustment.

During her life the car has been ownerdriven, except during my service abroad which finished in 1933. While away a careful farm lad drove as required.

At the moment I can get :35 m.p.g. with the present issue of petrol, but before its deterioration on long runs did 40.

I change the oil in the sump eVery SOO miles, and between the changes very little addition is necessary, and the car is running as sweetly as when new.

Incidentally I still have two semiballoon Englebert tyres on the back wheels which I bought with a secondhand model in running order in 1932 for 25 Plenty of spares, as the company went into liquidation in 1929. I am, Yours, etc.,

Co. Cork, J. H. DE ILEHEZ Sstrru. Capt. (retired)
