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 Julian, Than you for your response. My post was not intended to be a complaint about your company; on the contrary I am very happy with the service and the response to my queries. I have bought most of the parts for my restoration from you and generally have no problem with the quality. As others...

Re: Problems fitting courtesy light switches

Hi Angus, How do you get around this problem in your workshop; do you modify them in some way, or do you get them from another supplier? Hi Simon, I agree; I don't normally bother with these smaller items. I had broken mine, so I didn't think I was likely to get them replaced anyway, But I just thou...

Problems fitting courtesy light switches

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,

Paul

Re: Extension board up-stand clip area finishing

Hi Angus, Yes I do trust him; I'm sure he has forgotten more than I know; it just seems so... well unfinished. I was going to do it as it is original, but I was wondering if anyone has done a modification of any sort; some sort of plug surround perhaps. Maybe it is best left alone unless it starts f...

Extension board up-stand clip area finishing

I was talking to Richard Smith at Jaguar Spares Day and when I asked him, he told me that where the extension board behind the seats on the FHC folds down and the pins go through the up-stand, that the vinyl is simply sliced in a cross pattern to allow the pins to go through to the clips in the up-s...

Re: 64 OTS Rear Bumper Overrider

Hi Tim, I believe the 'grip nut' is like a nut enclosed by a clip that sits in a square hole in the overrider. I bought some for my 65, but found that the overriders that I replaced them with had welded on nuts. The only advantage I can see is that it might enable the nut to sit at a different angle...

A post trimming

Hi, When looking at the A post through the windscreen at the front, there is a U channel in the A post from top to bottom. The windscreen rubber mounts on the outside one and the front part of the cant rail curves around the inner one. On my FHC, you can see the bottom of this U section between the ...

Re: Cant rail chrome retaining clips

Thank you all for your input. That’s a bit steep Andrew, considering that they are a relitivly simple shape. Yves, that is exactly what I have and the clip does show; perhaps the bonnet chromes are slightly smaller section than the originals. On the plus side, I had thought the clips were spring ste...

Cant rail chrome retaining clips

Hi All, I am trimming the cant rails on my FHC. I have covered them with vinyl and used bonnet chrome's as the chrome beading. My question is about the retaining clips that are pop riveted to the back of the rail, presumably in an attempt to hold on the chrome. I have only one clip at the front; sho...

Nice idea, but I am not quite sure how I would wire that without the power tracking to both circuits?
