Re: Door water deflectors

Well would you believe it.

I have just had a look at some old photos and they were original on my car too.

Re: Door water deflectors

The parts manual for the Series One doesn't mention them, nor do they appear on the SNG site for the Series One. They are however listed for the Series Two. I would have concluded that they were a later addition if it wasn’t for Surge's 3.8. I would agree with Simon that they are there to prevent wa...

Re: Door water deflectors

Interesting Angus, I wasn't aware of the nylon receivers I just have the ordinary steel ones, through the drilled holes.

Were they fitted to the Series Ones?

I will have to look into that.

Thanks,

Re: Oil pressure take off

You say you have a capillary gauge.

I had a problem getting oil pressure with mine and it turned out to be that the connecting capillary tube had sprung a leak behind the dash.

Very messy. :shock:

Just something to check.

Hi Donal,

Remove the bolts from the shell, it is much easier to re-fit that way.

Re: S1 4.2 gearbox bellhousing bung

Bryan,

That is not an original Jaguar access hole, or at least not E-Type; I expect someone has done a DIY job.

Edit: It has been pointed out to me that this hole does appear on 3.8's and early 4.2's, so sorry for the miss-information.

Re: Float level ? S1 4.2 does not start

Hi Carsten,

I think you are going off on a tangent; nether the springs or the needles would stop it from starting, they would just affect the normal running.

Re: Float level ? S1 4.2 does not start

Good point Christopher, but in my case it has worked.
Perhaps letting the air in more easily is what helps :scratchheadyellow:

Re: Float level ? S1 4.2 does not start

I have had some success in the past on initial start up by un-screwing the damper pistons completely and just leaving them in the pistons and then trying a start. My understanding of this is that it allows the pistons to rise easily, thus allowing a richer fuel mixture into the engine. I could be wr...

Re: Float level ? S1 4.2 does not start

Hi Carsten,

You say it starts on spray but then stops.

Could it be bad fuel or perhaps an ignition problem?

Re: s1 4.2 dipstick tube

When I was doing my engine, the tube was flush with the top of the block. I assumed that it had been broken off and ordered a new one from SNG. When I received it I was surprised that it was just the same as the one I had pressed out. No threads on it, it just presses in flush with the block. https:...

Re: Cant rail beading

The bonnet chrome strip is long enough for the FHC, I used them on mine.
A little needs trimming off the end, but it is made of brass.

You have to be very careful with the shaping, otherwise it will kink.
I used the cant rail itself as a former (without trim).

Re: Sweating Cohline hoses

Is this a problem confined to the round reservoirs as most of comments appear to be from people with 3.8’s? My reservoirs were bought from SNG several years ago 2015?? They are the square reservoirs and have a substantial metal tube support for the hose spout. My reservoirs are fine and I can find n...

Re: Chrome trim straightening advice BD19293 and BD19294

I have had some success in the past using a piece of shaped wooden dowel to massage out the dents in a similar way to paintless dent removal.
I have protected the other side with masking tape while supporting it against a 'dolly'
