Re: Front Jacking point

Hello Steve, Yes there is a support bracket bracket that ties the Floor, Foot Well Closing Panel and Side Panel of the Foot Well together and creates support as a Jacking Point. The following picture is of the part used in both the S3 OTS and the 2+2. As the OTS is built on the 2+2 platform, all the...

Re: Water Pump seal installation

Hello Tadek, The following picture is of the complete S3 Water Pump sold by SNGB. https://i.postimg.cc/hGtzn6jM/Seal4.jpg The Seal has a pressed metal cover and is clear from the inside face of the Impeller by approximately 3mm. The bore of the Seal is an interference fit on the shaft. The following...

Re: Water Pump seal installation

Hello ysmalkie, I don't believe that the drawing of the S2/S3 Seal relates to the typical Seal supplied by SNG Barratt and is clearly not like the Seal used in their whole pump assembly for the S3. The shaft diameter that interfaces withe the Impeller is 5/8" (15.875) and the Inner Component (Impell...

Re: Tapered bearings..end float or pre load

I put my trousers on in a similar manner to other mechanical engineers. You think that the Front Wheel Bearing system of an E Type, or others with a similar system is great, just because the manufacturer made it that way; a running fit of the bearing with the journal is not that clever. The working ...

Hello Steve,
The Rear Bearings have a reasonable Interference fit with their Journal; accordingly, I set these up with Pre-load.

Re: Tapered bearings..end float or pre load

Hello Steve, If the bearings are due for renewal, almost invariably, you will fins a groove the width of the Inner Bearing at 6 o'clock on the Shaft. This is due to the Bearing spinning on the shaft. Most stub axles being sold for E Types and others, are made so that the Bearings are a close running...

Re: Sill Rubber Seals

Hello Simon,
Neil's car is an S3, therefore, the Sill Seal is different to that used with your short wheel base car. The following picture shows the cross section and orientation on it's location in the car.

Hello Phil, I'd give SNGB a chance to respond. Typically they're interested in resolving issues and yours may have got lost in the noise of COVID. Perhaps contact then again to remind them of the issue. I don't know who makes the Mounting System; I suspected it was Bell. The Resonator Bracket System...
