I understand this has happened so I placed the prop in the tunnel months before installing the engine. The prop needs to be stored somewhere.

Re: Spotted

Back in the day, before cell phones, my Dad had a CB radio for emergencies. The antenna base was mounted on the rear AMCO bar and looked very much like that.

Re: 1968 Series 1.5 parts catalogue

...Series 1.5 FHC is there one specific for this series if not would I be better off going for a 1 or 2 catalogue. Here is how I understand it. You start with the "Spare Parts Catalogue" i.e. Publication NO. J.37, then add to that the "Interim Parts List For 1968 Jaguar...." (IPL) and you are prett...

Another option: Cut the lever about 1 inch and re-thread. I didn't have the thread problem but a knowledgeable person suggested that to me. It gives the gearbox a really nice short throw through the gears.

Re: Su carbs

Hi John, I had no issue with clearance while installing my triple SU manifold/carb assembly on my 1968 series 1 1/2. However, I do have new motor mounts. If your mounts are old and/or sagging it might cause your clearance issues. Also, if your engine is sitting low and you don't have enough clearanc...

Re: Squeaking rear end - one cause found!

Great job finding that one John. I would hope that the disk vendor would be interested in passing along to the manufacturer that they need to trim 0.003" off the bell...but maybe not.

Thanks for posting.

Re: Indicator switch

Yes, the entire shroud needs to be able to move, via the spring, in and out which makes and breaks contact. You might be in business with a spring?

I don't know how accurate this information is but it's a start and I believe Dave is a reliable source.

If you realy do want to go down that route, then as mentioned already, a screen mounted one would make sense, although it probably won't work with DAB. I have fitted a ...
