Re: Pilkington windscreen aerial wiring

Hi Simon, Thanks for your response. Yes I think I was involved in the earlier discussion. I will contact Dampmansteve if he doesn't see this. I bought my windscreen some time ago, so I wouldn't think it is DAB compatible. My radio isn't DAB ether, so this won't be a problem, but I was wondering if I...

Pilkington windscreen aerial wiring

Hi, I have a Pilkington heated windscreen which also has an aerial in it. The aerial filament’s go up the centre of the windscreen in two separate lines, which individually go off to ether side of the windscreen at the top. They are not connected to each other in any way and the connectors at the bo...

radio console speaker panel trim

Forgive me if I am being stupid, but I have just discovered that my radio console is missing amongst other things the speaker trim panels BD26202/3. What exactly are they for? The frame assembly is shaped like this: https://i.postimg.cc/k5SgHntY/07724d8a-8464-44fb-bdb0-23cf3d1831af.png and the cover...

Fixing the Y trim piece on centre console

Hi, Does anybody have a picture of the underside of the Y shaped trim piece on the centre console? It would appear that mine has been modified (shortened) by the PO and it is unclear what is original and what is not. I am trying to establish how it is fixed on to the console. Also is the gauntlet pa...

Re: Quick Release Steering Wheel

Do CMC supply a column lock like the Superspoke one?

I would think that this would add another level of security to a removable steering wheel as it would be very difficult to use something like mole grips to steer it (onto a trailer).

Re: Quick Release Steering Wheel

Can't find it on the internet at the moment, but Superspoke advertise a lock on cover to use when the steering wheel is removed.

I think it is designed to rotate so that nothing could be used to lock on to the steering column to steer the car once the steering wheel is removed.

Re: Replace fuel line banjo - epoxy resin?

It probably is silver solder, but I soldered mine on with ordinary plumbers solder and it seems fine.

It does not need to stand very high pressures and won't get all that hot in use for this to be a problem.

As Steve says, silver solder requires much more heat to make a joint.

Re: 1976 Daimler crank in a 1969 block. Main Bearings

Hi James,

Have you put the cap bearings in the block? I think they are different.

The bearings that sit in the block are the ones that should have the grove down the centre of them, as in my picture above.

And the bearings in the centre are different from the ones at each end.

Re: 1976 Daimler crank in a 1969 block. Main Bearings

Hi James, I could be wrong, but I am fairly sure all 4.2 cranks are interchangable. I am not sure if this will help, but I bought a new crank from SNG which has a 10/69 stamp on the box MOD old stock I believe and it is identical to my 65. https://i.postimg.cc/4NzS36HK/Picture-6075.jpg https://i.pos...

Re: Window winder repairs

I modified a winder mechanism from a Mk2 Jaguar (front I think) Got it on E-bay; much cheaper than an E-type. The winder box is identical, It just required swapping the arms. It needed a slightly different orientation on the square rivet, so I welded it on with the corners in the middle of the flat ...

Hi Malcolm,

Have you tried this:

Seels pretty much everything I have used it on, from fuel lines to central heating fittings.

Hi, I have bought some courtesy light switches and they are too big to clip into the holes in the' A' post. In fact I managed to break the spring clips whilst trying to force them in. I bought them from SNG who state that nobody else has reported problems with these, but they will replace them or re...

Chrome strip for door armrests

Hi,

Does anybody know where I can buy the right section chrome plastic trim for the Series One door armrests?

It is a sort of 'P' section piece and all I can find is 'U' section.

As far as I am aware it is not available as a spare part.

Thanks,
