Re: Hose C14991/1 to C17421 .... C12630 etc - just more Crap Parts ?

Sadly, you can only buy the 3.8 Fosseway set with both types of header-tank top hose. http://www.fossewayperformance.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/IMG_1744-e1383301285105.jpg So you pay £222, and then chuck away the top hose you don't need, which you've probably paid £35 for. Money and raw mater...

Re: Series 1 insulation on floors

Another vote for Dynamat followed by an epdm closed call foam insulation. With mine being a roadster, I wanted to avoid the old style jute insulation as it holds moisture.

Re: Fuel Tank Vacium

It sounds to me as though your filler vent pipe has a kink in it . AFAIK it should not act as a one way valve , and should allow air in and out I might be wrong Chris but I always thought the only thing venting the tank allowing air in or out once the cap is on, is the tiny hole in the filler cap i...

Re: Adjusting drivers door shut line

This problem could be caused by the door hinge becoming slightly seized. It causes the door frame to slightly bend where the hinge fits before it actually opens. I'd check and lubricate before altering adjustment. Good point Derek, definitely worth a look first. Be very careful until you have solve...

Re: Adjusting drivers door shut line

Hi Mike, The forward and back adjustment requires the removal of the door cards to gain access to the four countersunk bolts that attach the hinges to the doors. There is some up and down adjustment on these too. No shims are used on the door hinges. The in and out adjustment and to a small extent u...

Ask your mechanic to check and see if he’s missing any tools. :wrench: :hammer:
Or if you are worried, at least ask him to put it back on his ramp and give it a quick check over.

Re: E SI with XJ6 SIII oil filter housing-filter bypass?

Hi Layne, Great pics and info. Funnily enough, just out of curiosity I ordered a genuine Jaguar filter from Barratts. On initial inspection it looks exactly like the Fram PH2995A one. Viewed internally you can see the same pressure reIief valve, corugated metal inner support tube, anti drain back va...

Seat Lever Font and Wording?

Hi,

I'm trying to copy the font and text on the original seat levers but unfortunately don't have originals to look at. From the factory fit pictures I have "ULL -LEVER" without the "P" , is that correct even on later cars?

Thanks.

As regards import figures fluctuating I imagine that as well as market va...

Re: E SI with XJ6 SIII oil filter housing-filter bypass?

Nice work. That is a very different construction than the Fram Extra Guard that I have seen decon’d here. The description in the blog and the videos show a US extra guard with cardboard ends on the filter cartridge and a very light weight bypass valve, different filter. Is it a coil spring applying...

Re: E SI with XJ6 SIII oil filter housing-filter bypass?

Can’t locate a PH2995a. I can find the Fram Ph2995. Asked Fram and they said it’s ph2995. The PH 2995 is a Fram Extra Guard filter line, lower end of the Fram line. Please don’t take offense at the following review, different application, same product line for Fram. I copied it from the Ratblog540 ...

Hi Layne, Pics as promised below of a dissected Fram PH2995A. It seems to be of a reasonable construction and both the anti drain back and bypass valve are visible. The filter element on mine was well bonded to both the top and bottom plate. The bypass valve is in a metal housing and both valves inc...
