LUCAS 608 MIRROR COLLET

Hello, and apologies if this is covered in another post. I need to replace my damaged Lucas 608 rearview mirror. I have a replacement an NOS Lucas 608 in perfect condition, with the foot and locking nut (even in its original box), but it's missing the brass collet that goes on to the stem. When the ...

Re: Lucas Hydraulic Switch

Dear Steve, thank you and apologies for late reply. I too have been in contact with SNGB and discovered all the switches I have obtained with the Jaguar part number as listed in the parts book won't fit - metric thread. SNGB explained my car must be the 1 in 10 that won't accept their standard repla...

Re: Lucas Hydraulic Switch

Thank you Andrew. Yes, it is the rear brake light switch. The measurements you quote are exactly the same as the new switches I have purchased, but are all too large in diameter to fit the four way brass brake union in my car. I'll have to take the switch off today to find out what the diameter actu...

Lucas Hydraulic Switch

This is a strange one, can anyone help me please? I've purchased 4 switches so far to replace the faulty one in my S1 4.2 Roadster and none fit. The diameter of the replacements are all too large. The switch fitted in the car looks exactly like the Lucas C16062 but is stamped on the nut face '37 / 1...

S1 4.2 Battery replacement/upgrade

Quick question, looking back over past posts the Odyssey PC1200LT was recommended as a direct fit upgrade. This battery type does not appear to be available anymore. The number that is closest is PC1200T. Will this fit or can anyone suggest an alternative? I want to use the original clamp etc. Don't...

I've taken a picture comparing both the old and new. This is the comparison picture. As you can see the inner diameter of the old U/J is considerably smaller than the new version and this is what is preventing the new U/J being inserted in to the yoke. http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y186/q-max/E-T...

David The prop shaft looks very much like the exploded drawing of C19875. - No. 4, the large rubber gaiter is the same. However both shafts I have are stamped C26576. Looking on the web David Manners quotes this number (E-Type SWB) as being superseded by C22097 (which is the top exploded drawing). I...

David The vibration is definitely caused by worn U/Js. I ordered a replacement pair for 4.2 E-Type from SNG Barrett after they told me the part you recommended was for a 3.8 E-Type and would not fit. The ones I ordered were their up-graded GKN versions Part No. JLM823U. These U/Js don't fit my prope...

Strange vibration

Before embarking on changing the propeller shaft U/J's (which I have discovered are original, or at least fitted before I bought the car 15+ years ago) I consulted the parts book. The ones illustrated appear to be without a grease nipple. U/J's listed, for example, on Ebay have nipples and others do...

Thank you for suggesting checking the U/J's. I'll be careful. Christopher, sorry I upset you about Lucas but my long experience with the electrical side has left me with a very bad impression. However, it may be a case of the modern repro parts not up to the same standard of those built 40+ years ag...

Never though of that. Car's done very few miles since full restoration and new clutch (15k) but has been laid up a lot of the time. Is there anyway of checking this?

Thanks Angus. I'll try that now. The mounting rubber, around the fronts does have a lot of little splits - bad sign?

Please someone advise what's wrong. Driving the car (67 4.2 OTS) makes a vibration that progressively gets worse as speed is increased. It is coming from the engine. If you put the clutch in, the vibration immediately stops. And still rolling at speed (clutch in) and revving the engine hard there is...

Steering wheel replacement and comments.

I think their are a couple of issues being addressed here. 1. Many people want/need a smaller diameter wheel, particularly if you're running with non standard wheels/tyres. 2. The original is very flexible and often the wood delaminates over the years. The glue used, at the time, is not a modern epo...
