Rory, I want first refusal on that when you’ve finished with it. I’ll come over and collect.

Re: Building an Engine Test Bed

Bearing in mind the recent concerns regarding clutches, might be worth plumbing it in?

I wouldn't trust the studs on a long stud engine. The more you can use the better!

Bet it is the remnants of the roof lining side trim.

Re: Pulling to offside under braking

Hi Ross,

I'm going to sound a bit like a typical parts supplier here but..... I've never had a problem reported like this but wouldn't rule it out.

If there is anything we can help with, please let me know (if our caliper is faulty, we will replace it).

Re: Handbrake cable fixing

Depends on how early the car is. The early ones had a spring that held the cable away. Later on, there was an oval with a grommet that the cable passes through.

Make sure the engine frame bolts are tight (particularly on the bulkhead).

Re: Chrome wing beading sealing

We never seal them as the flanges are painted plus the reason Christopher stated. They need to 'breathe'. IIRC. when they were new, there was little of no paint in between these flanges.

Re: LED & PL700

Better car lighting have produced a complete PL headlight using LEDs I believe. It might be worth giving Gil a ring on 01789576102.

Re: E-Type major price correction expected?!

and that is the exact reason for owning/buying one. I am not seeing a major price correction on the cars we deal with. I also see the right cars being sold for very good money - they aren't normally advertised. The normal rubbish that gets hawked around auction/auction sites will always be hard to s...

Re: A year ago, when things were different

Sad times indeed Chris. We were due to take a leisurely drive down to Italy to watch the MM again this year and it was great fun booking everything and working out the route last year. It was equally sad to be cancelling everything though. Lets just hope that we don't forget these times and remember...

Re: Series 3 Brake Servo Replacement⅚

I wouldn’t recommend changing to silicone at this point. People have had problems with seals swelling. We only use silicone on our restorations as everything has been replaced or rebuilt. Swapping out the servo is no big deal, bleeding the brakes could be.

Re: Woodham & Mortimer WM sport GT

I don't know Simon. I agree, I would have thought it would be aircon but it would be unusual to use the standard flap vents inside the car. I can't see the compressor etc and there is no mention of it in the sales literature.
