Re: New alternator

Hi
That’s part of the problem no markings on the alternator body or plastic mouldings

Re: Distributor and starting car

As Tom says looks like the xj6 damper instead of the etype

If that the case the set up shouldn’t be far wrong? Just need to get set at 10 degrees before and try again

Re: Series1 2+2 exhaust fitting - update to the tale

Hi I completely concur with your comments and findings It’s awful and yes SNG have it wrong as the front bracket is ok and it’s the rear that doesn’t fit, As for the rear mount that’s just a waste of time and money and itS back to having to fabricate a poor fitting part yourself to fit as neither se...
