Now supplying improved EPDM Rubber Seals for use with RR363 fluid
We are not only developing new parts for your classics which are no longer available, but we are also making improvements to products in circulation which are known to be problematic or of dubious quality.
In recent years there has been an industry-wide problem with brake accumulator valve leakage, caused by the a reaction between the o-ring seals and the synthetic oil used in the hydraulic system.
Our new high ‘ENB’ EPDM seals are manufactured from a certified laboratory-tested compound and is entirely impervious to synthetic brake fluids used in the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, T-series and Corniche (excluding cars equipped for use with green mineral fluid).

Steel or Bronze oil pump gear on your Silver Shadow II?
Matt confirms the right material for your Crankshaft gears. Originally cars had a steel gear on the crankshaft and a bronze gear on the oil pump.
After chassis number 39628 for models between 1965 to 1980, the arrangement was changed over so the crankshaft gear is bronze and the oil pump gear is steel.
Make sure if you are changing old ones then to change both this gears to the newer ones - UE41034 is the bronze gear on the crankshaft and UE42783 is the steel oil pump gear.

Silver Dawn, Silver Wraith, Mk VI & R Type Replacement Gear Washer for RG5829

Rolls-Royce & Bentley Secondary Door Seals
Secondary Door Seals may be fitted to any Rolls-Royce and Bentley model built from 1955 to 1997. They are designed to reduce wind noise, which is a problem for many motorcars where the primary door seal is fitted to the door rather than the body of the car.
They do so by occupying the gap between the frame of the door and the body of the car (the “door gap”) where wind noise is generated.
You will find that fitting a set of these seals will make a significant difference to noise inside the car.
