Re: 50 Year Celebration of the Series 2 !

Any further plans to maybe make this happen on the weekend of Oct. 5 -7? I´m planning to be in the region on that weekend.

Re: Fan belt setup

Geoff welcome to the forum! You have come to a great place! My car is US1970 S2 OTS lhd with AC and PS. Here a small shematic as seen from the front. The belts noted in the shematic are the american ones fitted when the car came. The second picture is recent when I changed the belts last week. The n...

Re: Difference btw US and European spec’s

As politeperson stated: You might check the rear end. Depending on year and gearbox, US models had different differential ratios than row cars. Not a small thing because once in there, and the IRS is in/out, you’ll want to take care of all the other IRS-issues. And with the lighting, Marekh can help...

Re: Temporary or drive away insurance for classic car

Once you start workarounds things can get really messy if indeed something was to happen. As long as the seller goes along with it, at least you would be covered.

Re: Knock on rear end (sounds painfull)

Phil, have you recently had an oil change in the differential? The limited slip differential is sensitive to the correct oil being used. Wrong oil might cause the stated symptoms under your stated circumstances. Oil change and heartedly driving 8‘s to get the new oil well in would be my advice, befo...

Re: Brake Warning Light

Alan, adjustment should work fine, once you remove the tunnel cover. Be prepared to use WD40 or the like to maybe free up the mechanism.

Re: OTS Boot Floorboards

Pat, (?) I believe that simple metal bracket is available, I don‘t recall where though. Here the measurements I took, should be simple enough to make up. The rubber grommets are the same as the tank filler lid grommets. The spring latch you mean the one in front or the hold-down bracket in the back?...

Did the striker plate end up further outboard, or further inboard? Just curious.

Shift knob wobbles in third

I´ve installed aftermarket engine mounts, an aftermarket stabilizer and the rubbers for the gearbox mount. Loading the engine in 3rd, the knob goes aft/forward. Is this inherent to the gearbox or are my mounts lousy? No big deal, since I´m happy to have a driving E-type. And yes, plenty of other to-...

John, I agree with Stuart - enjoy your car as it is! Efforts of therapy weigh heavier than those of examination, so don‘t dig in :hammerdrill: too deep. :) To answer your question: As mentioned there are holes in the inner sill. The grommets under the bonnet pin receiving brackets give access to the...

Re: Rear Bumper Rubber
