Hello all, My old friend Bob Skillen had a wonderful Phantom 11, 93TA, which he purchased from Percy Markham in 1975. I knew the car well and much admired it. It passed through a number of non-combatants until I purchased it a month or so ago, with 3,131 original miles recorded. The low mileage is misleading as it has inherited so nasty lack of use maladies, which I am gradually correcting. I have now done over 100 miles in the car and am developing a rapport with it's attention needs. I look forward to putting many miles onto this piece of artwork and would like to share this with fellow members.

Hello all....especially anyone who has access to this. I have replaced the road tyres and have had to blow out the radiator and block again due to corrosion product making it's way from the block to the radiator tubes. I have now fitted a temporary filter between the block and the radiator to gather any corrosion materials before they infest the radiator core. It is almost winter and i'm certain that I shall have no difficulty with the cooling. I am enjoying driving this impressive Motor. I have flushed out the Bijur system and have developed a maintenance regime with regard to the clutch release bearing lubrication. The clutch release bearing was replaced in 1976 with 42 years and approx 3,000 miles of use. It was a challenge to find a competent tyre fitter for the wheels but this is sorted. i shall keep the Forum posted. I have attempted to upload a photo of the temporary filter without success. I shall try again at some other time...very frustrating. Best Regards, Peter Toet
