Sunbeam Alpine Wiki

Over the past few years, in the process of getting our car back on the road, I’ve collected a lot of information about the Sunbeam Alpine from various books, websites, forums, and my own hands-on experience. Last week I created a wiki page for the Sunbeam Alpine so that I can make this information available online. My hope is that it will be useful to others who are repairing or restoring these unique cars.

  1. Hello Jeff, Thanks for the blog info on pipe threads NPT vs. BSPT. Over the years as a mechanical designer for a company building chemical etching equipment for worldwide sales I though I had a handle on the plumbing being used by all. Lucky for us the line pressures hardly ever get above 4 Bar so the use of thread tape has allowed us to inter-mix threads.
    Also being a do-it-yourself odd and old car restorer I liked your other handy tips for making a valve spring tester and the magnetic drain plug. My Citroens have such a plug in the transaxle assembly which is the same size as that of the oil pan of the engine. I make sure I use the magnetic plug for both places.
