Re: So sad, FIRE

Irrespective of people's views on opening the bonnet, I think it is good advice to learn HOW to use a fire extinguisher effectively. It may be that only one is available so you need to make the best use of it. It is no good wafting powder or CO 2 all over the flames from a distance, this will merely...

Re: Subframe mountings (shims??)

There is a company on E bay selling stainless ones and lots of other stainless shims, that’s where I got mine from and cheaper than the big usuals.

Re: Wiper motor parking issue

Hi Andy,

Sorry I can't help with why the motor is getting hot but can confirm a Mini parking switch fits as I fitted one to mine when I swapped from LHD to RHD and refurbished the wiper motor.

Re: Scuttle top casing cover

Hi Michel, If you mean item 26 in the pic , I got mine from BAS. It needs to be heated up and moulded round the metal or in your case aluminium panel. I didn't fancy doing it myself so sent the panel to Jack at BAS to do, however there are those on here who have done it themselves. Richard rswaffie ...

Re: Throttle linkage fouling

Hi Andy, My S2 had two thick washers when I dismantled it that looked to have been original. Without those my bracket fouls the wiper motor. It can’t be spaced off the bulkhead too much as it affects the geometry of the various linkages and might make one of the rods foul the header tank if yours is...

Welcome to the forum Bob. I’m only 40 minutes from Northwich. As regards editing your pic, you will have to do it before uploading as Steve says. In the meantime here’s one I did quickly on my phone. If you are worried about the reg, save the pic and upload it in place of yours or if that doesn’t wo...

Hutsons in Bradford do them but don’t advertise the fact. Give Andy Raynor a call.

Re: Starter tried hard to run the car into a wall.

Hi Anthony, Two possibilities. 1. Faulty ignition switch now supplying permanent live to the primary circuit side of the relay. 2. Faulty relay where the secondary circuit of the relay is in permanent contact. Sometimes the terminals inside the relay weld themselves together. I’m assuming the fan wi...

Re: Brake servo heat shield

A good friend of mine made me one from titanium with a sheet of zircoflex sandwiched between the two outer layers. There's no reason you couldn't make something similar in aluminium. The picture below hopefully gives you an idea. https://i.postimg.cc/zBHqktbC/26731490-1981921698690762-81699967044985...

Re: Pilkington windscreen aerial wiring

Hi Paul, Dampmansteve, a member on here had one of these fitted so might be worth asking him. His had the heated front screen as well so if I remember , there was some confusion about the various connections. When I spoke to Pilkington 12 months ago, their screen aerials weren't DAB compatible but t...

Re: E Type Parts UK

Edited in light of the post and link below.

Although I've bought parts from them and been happy with the service I'm not sure I can condone the selling of vehicle identities without the presence of an actual car to restore.

Re: C2270 3.8 Locating Cylinder Head Stud problems ?

Same experience regarding the poor quality threads from SNG Barratts so bought a set from Rob Beere. You would need to ask him if he will sell you just one but to be honest if the threads are not particularly good on the Barratts ones I'd probably send them back and buy a full set from Rob Beere.
