Re: car lift

Hello, to answer your questions, if the Autolift3000 is compatible with my E-type OTS, it is compatible with a 2 + 2. In addition, the two trays are 80 cm long, so the weight of the car is distributed over 160 cm. Thus, there is no risk of damaging the structure of the car, provided you press in the...

Re: car lift

Hello, I chose the Autolift3000 solution a month ago. The 2 trays slide and can adapt in width to the Jaguar E-type, by putting them to the minimum. To ensure maximum safety, I add 2 pieces of tube to block the trays at a minimum. This system allows the car to be mounted at 60 cm in the middle, so a...

Re: Belt tensioner bearings repair – Tutorial

The bottom photo shows the dismantling. Indeed, for the reassembly it is indeed necessary to push on the outer race of the bearings, in order not to damage them, in accordance with the photo.
I send you too the final picture.

Thank you Jerome for this remark.
