Hi On my 3.8 fuel is coming out of the overflow pipe from the centre carburettor. I have fitted the float chamber lid from the front carburettor to the centre one with no result.

Hi Slips,

I have sprayed my hood frame with paint sourced from SNG Barratt.
Part number is CH2006.
BS 631 is a powder coating I think.

Good luck !

Hi Jaime,

I used brush on all purpose glue to fit the body rubbers.
Not all of the rubbers in my kit where made from the same material.
I had to use an adhesive silicone (also used in building construction) to fit the B-post rubbers for example.

3.8 roadster boot lid emblem position

I have to drill the holes in my new boot lid to fit the "Jaguar" emblem.
Who wants to measure for me the distance from the upper edge of the
boot lid to the upper side of the emblem. I would like to have the emblem
fitted on the correct place.

Many thanks

spare wheel clamp lenght

My spare wheel clamp is 8.7 cm long measured from the underside of
the clamp plate to top of thread. It's to short to hold the 5" spare wheel.
Who knows if I have the correct one ?

exterior mirror

Hi everybody,

Till now I have no drivers experience in E types. Is it useful to fit
an exterior mirror on the door or is it ok with interior mirror only ?
What's your experience ?

David,

Is there a partnumber for the spring I'm missing. I have looked in the
partsbooks but it's not described. Should it be available from one of
the usual suppliers ? Many thanks so far.

David,
On my new heater box (gloss black) I have the axle of the heater flap which should be connected with the cable lever that is fitted on an "on the box" welded axle. It's not fitted like yours.
Can you tell me how to post a picture to this forum ?

heater box airflap linkage

I have just installed a new heater box to my '64 car. The airflap does
not move when I operate the "OFF-AIR-ON" handle on the dash.
I would like to know how the axle of the airflap is linked with the
heater box lever whereon the cable is attached ? What am I missing here ?
