John,

Re: Just Joined the Forum - looking for help on buying a car

Welcome Tony! a hint on what you are looking for in terms of level of condition will help giving sound advice. The green OTS will be a nice E once well sorted, but as is reg pictures doubtfully a MOT-worthy driver. Are you looking to get an immediate driver, or are you looking to do substantial work...

Re: distributor

Bill, I recently fitted a 123 system, the standard one, and I am very pleased. If I were to do it again I would go for the Bluetooth system, it gives you more stuff to play with. At the same time new spark wires were fitted. Now if only they had a model to reduce loss of oil... Go the distance and f...

Mark,

I‘ve planned on being in Bicester, together with David J. I‘ll try to park near to where the parking was set up for the forum last time. S2 Silver OTS.

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.

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?...

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-...
