Re: Suspension

I think we need more detail on the nature of the damage you have suffered. As already said the suspension is pretty robust and more than adequate for normal use...The rear suspension was used in many jaguar models and even the Aston Martin DB7 used a derivation of it I believe. The front suspension ...

Re: Jaguar halts E Type Zero

Hydrogen is an excellent fuel for fuel cells driving motors but not a good fuel for internal combustion engines....presumably Toyota are looking at some type of fuel cell technology for their cars?

There were several companies at last year's Excel show selling electric MGs and the like....wonder where the ruling leaves them? Hydrogen can be made from hydrocarbon fuels....for example heating methane with steam and a reaction yields hydrogen, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide!!!!needs lots of e...

Re: Hazard dash light not working.

Might be the bulb holder...the Lucas WL 3 holders are not brilliant. Age and dirty terminals....May be something as simple as the end connection on the bulbs being a bit dirty. A quick polish on an old pair of jeans sometimes solves the issue :bigrin:

Re: Hi, I'm new

Welcome. Well they are very different cars from very different era's. The E type was first sold in 1961...so nearly sixty years ago. The F type was introduced in 2013 (I think) and is still in production. They are both two seat sports cars (you can get 2+2 E types) but there the similarity ends real...

Re: One for the 3.8 guys

Trouble is the 3.8 used a C42 (very early 3.8s used the C45 and RB310)...advert is For a C39/40...could be made to fit but they are shorter than a C42...others will disagree but an original dynamo and working control box is quite sufficient in most circumstances here in the UK...just my view :bigrin:

Re: 130A alternator upgrade

The recommended max float voltage of a fully charged lead-acid cell depends on temperature, cell type (flooded, gell, agm etc) and manufacturers recommendations but a good guide is 2.27 to 2.3 volts max at 20 deg C which means a six cell car battery should be limited to 13.62 to 13.8 volts....I woul...
