Re: Initial engine run - procedure?

Sounds good! Maybe worth leaving the choke off initially so it doesn't start too instantly before the oil has got round a bit.

Re: Road Dyno

Is there a modern equivalent to the road dyno you can buy? I've looked on Amazon and E Bay and can't find anything. You can still enter "www.dynoplus.co.uk" and a live site advertising the road dyno comes up, but no contact point.

Hi and welcome Andy! By DHC, I assume you mean an OTS? Jaguar never had a DHC E type. Just words I know, but it's what the E fraternity use.

Re: Before and after

Jeremy, yes it does. You dab solution number one on with the supplied (or any other!) brush and leave it for 5 mins. This ensures it runs into all the tricky to get to corners. You then just hose it off and it comes up like magic. You let it dry, I rub off any "pooled" bits of water after a while, t...

This is the stuff I use Richard. Quite expensive, but lasts for ages. I'm into about year 3 with mine.

Re: getting a wheel 'orf!

Thanks both, no corrosion, and having now put them back on (can tighten easily by hand before finishing off) they release easily enough. I take them off every year, think I must have overdone it last time. I'll try the copperslip.

getting a wheel 'orf!

Had a hell of a time getting a front wheel off today. I use a long breaker bar with one of the adaptors for the knock-0ff. Really works well. Usually. This time, wouldn't budge. Got extensions on, wouldn't budge. Reverted to the good old lump hammer, wouldn't budge. Tried longer extension on breaker...

Re: LED & PL700

My S2 (1969) has standard basic headlights. Recently had to replace one with a new unit from SNG, which was a straight swap plug in. The new one matches old one in brightness so I know both are basic units. Have to say, the headlights have always seemed perfectly adequate, and I've done a lot of nig...

Re: Jaguar E Type Series 2 - Pressure sender failures.

I've recently gone on to a mechanical guage, but kept the old one "in case" It's nice to know I'm looking at the actual oil pressure when I look at the guage!!

Interesting video, until it came to the performance test - why didn't they compare the go kart performance with different plugs?? Test didn't seem to show or prove anything

Re: New owner Greetings & Basic Questions S3 2+2 '72

I'd certainly check the ride height, and also make sure you've got the right hangers. Mine is a 2+2, albeit a series 2, but mine hardly ever grounds anything. You can get details of just how high the body should ride, on this forum somewhere, although I'm not sure where - sorry!

Help with dipstick washer please

On the SNG site, they show a felt washer, part no 11665. Doesn't show whether or not it's for the dipstick. Does anyone know if this fits the dipstick?
