Re: Is Opalescent dark grey a S1 color?

Buggar! My recently arrived JDHT certificate states ‘Silver’ not ‘Dark’. Apologies in my excitement I posted in error. Should have read ‘definitely for a 66 car in opalescent silver grey’. I’ll hand my card in at the door.

Re: Location of brake/clutch reservoir bottles

How many holes for the loom do you have in the panel where the voltage regulator bolts on? You should have 2 (1 for the alternator loom and one for the under bonnet loom). The 3.8s have one.

Re: Door internal water shield

My understanding.... originally a tacky (partially sticky) polythene sheet was stuck to the door shell in between the door card and door. Later on, it was discovered that it worked better by sticking the sheet inside the door. As part of our experimentation (ie trying to get a door drain to work as ...

Re: OBL = $565k

I would say that between 1500 and 2000 hours. However, we could never bill for every hour we put in. 4 hours to adjust a door? Could be more!

Re: Engine Rebuild or not?

Check you have the correct rad cap - originally 4lbs but most people use a 7. (We took a 13lb one from a 3.8 that was causing a core plug to weep).

Re: 4.2 cooling mystery

The fan shouldn't come on when the car is at temperature and running. You might have air in the system. When the car is cool, remove the cap (check it is a 7lb cap and is the correct depth - you should feel a slight resistence when you fit it as the lower seal engages with the header tank). Fill the...
