Gearbox breather

Hi gents, Was the gearbox breather introduced with the all synchro box? I can’t find a reference for it on a 3.8. My car has one fitted (all synchro box). Should it be chrome plated? Mine appeared to be gold zinc with blisters all over it and upon rubbing it with steel wool chrome plate was revealed...

Re: New member

G’day Kevin, welcome. You’ll find this forum a wealth of knowledge for everything E Type and so many helpful members. It’s been a godsend for me over the years. I’m just a youngster - one year younger than my ‘61. Scary we'll both be 60 soon!

Cheers,

Re: Rear Bumper Overriders 4.2 S1

Here’s a start (link below).
Probably more cost effective than buying used and restoring. I was lucky enough to find a perfect second hand RHF for mine with just enough patina to match my bumper.

Re: 3.8 dynamo conversion

Good news, I have mine fitted up having got the correct bracket, pulley, fan and belt however the engine won’t be back in till I’ve re-fitted the picture frame and front suspension. I note that the alternator I removed had three wires but only two wires required for the Dynamator. That confuses me b...

Re: Exhaust manifold tuning

My 3.8 runs over the frame tubular manifolds. Unsure of any real gains and to be honest I’d probably revert back to standard if I were given a pair of shiny new black manifolds.

Re: Anti seize?

Thanks Christopher, I’m sure I’d read in the service manual to use a little grease but now I can’t find that reference. As you say I can’t see that the smear of nickel anti seize will do any harm. I suppose the bronze bush is self lubricating is it not?

Re: Caryx Manifold Dressing

I haven’t any experience with Caryx or any of these products as I have ceramic coated extractors fitted but this looks interesting too.

Anti seize?

Hi gents, Good to have the forum back up! I’ve recently fitted my clutch & gearbox to the engine (which is still out of the car) and I used loctite nickel anti seize lubricant on the pinion shaft and bush. Will this be ok or should I have used grease? I did use the same on my previous E Type when re...

Re: Bonnet springs

Perfect Steve, we’re on the same page. I should have most of that in stock too - and lots of spare time :(
Balance links along with latches and front suspension sent off for cad plating.

Bonnet springs

Hi Gents, Has anyone got an ingenious idea for stretching 4 bonnet springs simultaneously for the purpose of painting? I’ve thought of a wooden jig with threaded rods and nuts but if anyone has a better solution... They’ve been sandblasted and I’m proposing to paint them with POR15 Top Coat Chassis ...

Re: Bonnet balance link

Thanks Andrew. If it’s an option to have them plated without removing the rivets then I’ll do that.

Bonnet balance link

Hi gents,
I’ve removed my bonnet balance links for cad plating (now painted body colour). Will I need to fully disassemble them by removing the rivets? If so, how can I re-rivet them. I’ve never done it before
