Re: Starter or not

Pete, Have a read of post #13 on here :- http://forum.etypeuk.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=14010&p=130901#p130901 I had a similar issue of an intermittent starting issue. Usually it’s a bad earth and on my car it didn’t help there was a loose spade connection on my Hi Torque starter, but it turned out to...

Re: Rear Wood Jacking Spreder

Paul, Here’s mine from a previous post :- I have a simple jack plate which fits each side of the exhausts. The wooden 70 x 45 mm lifting supports just fits snugly each side of the pipes, with the wood picking up on the differential trunnion brackets. https://i.postimg.cc/P5pdZMc4/FE10-DA18-FE72-4-F5...

Re: rubber mounting to chassis member rear suspension cradle

Jerry, With the end of the bolt sticking out, it could be a long liberal spray on that part will freeze the bolt through the sleeve and the freezing action will “crack” the corrosion joint between them. It is quite clever stuff in that you let it do it’s own work in a couple of minutes after applyin...

Re: rubber mounting to chassis member rear suspension cradle

Hi Jerry, Also doing a bit of work on my rear axle at the moment. This is the stuff I use - Crack-it Shock-Freeze Release Spray. Better than using heat and the freeze action breaks the corrosion seal, plus it contains a penetrating oil as it freezes the components down to - 50 degrees C. Great stuff...

Re: Mystery Differential oil leak Finally resolved !

Steve, That would be most interesting to see if with an empty case if the threads do just punch through - even if it is just a small amount of the drilling. It’s hard to see that area with the Crownwheel in place over the leaky mounting area. Interestingly, my Diff is presently full of oil, just I’m...

Mystery Differential oil leak Finally resolved !

I have had a mystery oil leak from my rear differential and now finally found it. I did a previous post back in 2017, when I failed to admit it was actually on my car - and it turns out now that my hunch in my first comment was actually correct. http://forum.etypeuk.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=11066&p=8...

£300K Series 3 anyone ?

We all know the world will be going mad in 2021 with stories and interest in the E-Type.

Re: Engine block drain tap

Eddie, the original Jaguar drain tap is made of brass, including the tap handle. Under no circumstances try to twist the tap handle if it is tight as it will surely snap off as it is integrally cast with the spigot passing through the tap body. The tapered spigot has a hole through it to turn in a m...

Re: Cracks in the sills at the door corners.

I can’t see Rory’s images either.
After a few minutes where there was just a gap under the second paragraph, the word “image” appeared there.
Perhaps these are very large attachments which are taking time to download ?

Re: Winter storage on axle stands

I do take my wheels off in the winter months - usually from October through to March or April the next year. I keep the suspension under some form of compression to ensure they are not hanging in free space at their extremes - especially with the front wishbones which could potentially have the stee...

Re: Scissor lift safety

Just checking, but in post #2 Derek, is your rear axle supported as it appears the whole rear axle is hanging from the 4 rubber mountings ?
I can see in Post #5 that the axle appears supported from underneath.

Re: Series 3 fails to start

New coil now fitted, but still no spark.
I guess he should be looking at the amplifier. I know nothing about the Opus ignition system, but heard it can give issues.

Re: Series 3 fails to start

Many thanks for the prompt response. My friend has confirmed that the pump is returning fuel to the tank, so perhaps we are looking at some form of ignition issue. He will pull one of the plugs and see if he has a spark. I don’t know much about the V12 ignition system and potential faults, but I did...

Series 3 fails to start

Just trying to help a friend with an immaculate Series 3 E Type which was last run a couple of weeks ago, but now refuses to start.
The engine turns over, but the SU double action fuel pump continues to tick. Is this correct ?
Any thoughts on what the issue could be ?
