Re: Pictures of under dash harduras

Hi Steve,

Thanks for this. Unfortunately these appear to be the templates for the millboard/aluminium, not Hardura mats behind them.

Pictures of under dash harduras

Hi, Does anybody have a picture of the driver side (RHD) under dash Hardura mats fitted in place for the Series One 4.2? I have seen many different permutations of these mats and would like to know what exactly is correct. I bought some from Aldridge for my restoration, but they are the wrong shape ...

Hi Tony,

Monocoque Metalworks do them:

Not too difficult to make if you are good with metal.

Re: Location of brake/clutch reservoir bottles

Steve,

I see in your picture, that the pedal box opening in front of the large round hole is the larger type, which is used for the later type pedal box??

I am no expert, but I would think that this is an unusual combination?

Re: Location of brake/clutch reservoir bottles

Steve,

The two large holes in your bulkhead are what was used on the 3.8 with the bellows servo, so it would appear to me that you have an earlier bulkhead/shell??
As it was only the later cars that had intermnal vacuum pipes, this is why the holes are missing for your vacuum pipes?

Re: Need advice on new engine sump.

Hi Andrew, Dye is a good idea I hadn't thought of that. Do you know what dye was used? The sump cost £550. As I bought it off a trader I imagine now that it had possibly failed the quality check, by the manufacturer. I asked who made it, but they said they didn't know?? When I studied it in detail, ...

Re: Need advice on new engine sump.

Hi Darren, Thanks for your generous offer; the welding is not really the problem, it is finding the leak. I made the mistake of removing the sump before pinpointing it, as I was going to replace it. Andrew, Thanks for your comments. Twice bitten now; the first one would have required the use of Alle...

Re: Dashpanel top - recovering

Hi Chris, I bought one from SNG and yes it is padded. I agree with what has been said by Simon. I found it would have been far easier to do with previous experience. I had to remove and reheat and re glue the trim several times to get it right. I found that the padding had some rough edges where it ...

Need advice on new engine sump.

Hi, My engine has been running fine, but the original sump which had been quite badly damaged and welded up, was weeping a little oil through the side of the sump when the engine was running. I cannot pinpoint this leak, so last year at Jaguar Spares Day I bought a new one. It is not clear who made ...

Re: Interior panel covering?

Hi Andy, I did not have any original trim in my car, so after some considerable investigation I discovered: The up stand behind the seats that you are referring to was covered on the front face with vinyl and under this was a thin (1/8" ish) Jute material. I found the alternative scrim foam too thic...

Re: Location of brake/clutch reservoir bottles

Mine is a November 65 Series One and the vacuum pipes are inside the bulkhead, the earlier ones were external. The LHD does not need this additional pipe, which is why you haven't got it, but when converting to RHD one has to be installed. The parts manual for the Series One does not show this, but ...

Re: Aluminium under dash panels change date

Thank you both for your input, I have noticed that there seems to be a wide spectrum of people who say that they have original aluminium panels, some on cars as late as 1966. As far as I can establish, the part numbers remained the same throughout Series One production and maybe later. I made some p...

Aluminium under dash panels change date

Hi,

Does anybody know what date(chassis number) that the under dash panels (Scuttle Top Castings, in parts manual speak) changed from aluminium to millboard?

Thanks,

Re: Scuttle top casing cover

Hi Michel,

The Millboard does not have a covering as such, the millboard itself has a textured face.

Re: Scuttle top casing cover

Hi Michel,

I think the early ones were aluminium covered with vinyl (leathercloth) similar to the door cover vinyl.
The later ones were made of Millboard.

Unfortunately I dont know what date they changed.
