Re: Production Moss Gearbox

I think that earlier versions of the Moss used on the XK's had a split laygear - maybe a possible place to start?

Re: S2 Ignition Switch Bracket

The S1.5 column top Bob shows above can be fabricated and I will incorporate them as Bob wishes when I receive the pattern . I will be able to offer the S1.5 bracket in RHD form - something AFAIK was not available from Jaguar as the S1.5 collapsible column was Federal only I believe . Cars which hav...

Re: S2 Ignition Switch Bracket

Bit more information on the S2 ignition switch bracket . I am making a dozen of them and hope to have some done by Christmas . The bracket will fit all columns with the steering lock casting . Be aware that these columns are RHD or LHD and the bracket is also handed but only at the switch mounting a...

Re: S2 Ignition Switch Bracket

I messaged Richard Smith about this bracket over the weekend and he has just got back to me. He says he has only been asked for this bracket 2 or 3 times in the last 35 years so he does not think it is worthwhile tooling up for it. If anyone disagrees with this please let Richard know then he will c...

Re: S2 Ignition Switch Bracket

Just to let everybody know I have had several people contact me about this bracket. I have withdrawn the bracket from sale. Thanks

Re: S2 Ignition Switch Bracket

Looking into these brackets a bit further - the photo shown by Steve above shows the bracket I believe which was fitted to the S1.5 cars (and early S2) without the steering lock housing at the top of the upper column . As can be seen in Steve's photo the bracket has an additional tube which locates ...

Re: S2 Ignition Switch Bracket

I don't believe the RHD bracket differs markedly from the LHD . In fact I think it is only the 'D' shaped hole for the ignition switch that is different - or the switch would be upside down with the wrong bracket. The upper steering column casting was turned depending on which side drive was require...

Re: S2 Ignition Switch Bracket

Just putting up this view for Darren of a US S1.5/2 car. The indicator and the ignition switch housing are reversed on a UK car - meaning a small modification to the ignition switch bracket (to allow the wiring to pass through) The steering lock casting - which is unused in this instance - is visibl...

Re: E type full build

So S1 4.2 E-type as you say - but is it an OTS,FHC or 2+2 ? Is it RHD or LHD - or LHD changing to RHD ? I ask because some of the parts, pipe runs ,wiring etc are very different.

Re: Any value in a damaged S2 bonnet?

A second hand bonnet needing repair is difficult to price. It could have rust and filler all over it . A skilled metal worker can repair anything though so it depends on the work required . So its too difficult to say what this bonnet is worth without much more comprehensive photos.

The photos comprise - '63-'64 'crossed' alloy panel '64 3.8 - '68? 4.2 steel panel (seen trimmed) '68 on (S1.5 ?) and S2 steel panel in silver paint (not ...

Re: '64 3.8 Bonnet fitment

The repro picture frames can be thicker than original - this is not much though. Main reason will be the bonnet has been cut down on the back edge. As long as you have adequate adjustment this will not matter. I have had to weld on metal to recover bonnets cut down like this.

Re: '64 3.8 Bonnet fitment

I would start by looking at the alignment pin adjustment on the bulkhead.
You may be able to take a photo of each side with your phone by reaching up while the bonnet is closed.
