In a recent thread I found out that the engine number is stamped on the crank in early cars as is shown on yours.
Not just early cars Andrew, my 69 S2 has the engine number on the crank, and flywheel too.

Re: Door Drain Hole Shroud

Thanks for posting the S3 pic and dimensions Holger. I suppose if you felt you couldn't make them you could always cut some S1 shrouds down to size.

As Steve says, dead easy to fabricate. I made a simple press tool that will do it in a vice for my S2 ones

Re: S2 IRS rebuild

If you dismantle it yourself, make sure you don’t lose the shims under the lower fulcrum shaft brackets and note where they went. These govern the relationship of the diff, brackets and cage when you come to slide the pivot bolts back in. If you are getting the cage powder coated, make sure these ho...

Re: Dashboard switches wiring diagram

I'm pretty sure the instrument panels are opposite hand LHD vs RHD. Its definitely the case on Series 1. Regards The only difference I can find on the S2 legend strip is the addition of heated rear window on the far right for a Fhc. There doesn’t appear to be a different part number for LHD and RHD...

Re: Fed up as a washer drops inside the timing case cover

Paul I think you may well be right with that, and i don't think there is room at the sides of the baffle to get past.
The washer has probably ended up in that front section behind the web.

Re: Fed up as a washer drops inside the timing case cover

The sump baffle doesn't reach right to the front of the sump and my bet's that your washer is lying down there. Morning Jonathan.Just a last ditch thought before you remove the sump. As Andrew mentions there’s a chance it missed the baffle and went straight into the bottom of the sump. Maybe drain ...

Re: Fed up as a washer drops inside the timing case cover

Nah don't worry. It's in the sump and it's not going anywhere. ..... To be honest though, you can leave it and reconnect with it next time you rebuild the engine. That would be like your surgeon telling you as you wake up, the operation went well but I might have dropped something in there. Not to ...

Am I right in thinking the void behind the timing case connects down to the sump below...in which case if I am lucky..all I have to do is remove the sump...?..not easy as I remember when taking things apart...but better than stripping the engine apart... Advice please Perhaps a borescope and a leng...

Hi, I fited the shims as view on the photo but with the hole in horizontal reverse . With the hole at the exterior of the hinge it's more easy to take it in or off. Mich Interesting Michel.

Re: '64 3.8 Bonnet fitment

Hi Charlie, As well as the catches it might be worth checking the bonnet stays are adjusted correctly and not preventing the bonnet closing properly? There are also a lot of places clearances are very tight like inner mud guards, heater intake etc so make sure nothing is hitting and forcing the bonn...
