Re: Sudden complete loss of fuel delivery

Frank, It will be interesting to find out what this is. I have cut a couple of fuel tanks in half to be able to recycle the steel. Non explosive when in two pieces they say. One had been sitting for 15 years at least with some fuel (tank still in the car) and when cut in half I found the same stuff ...

Re: Rear bonnet grille

The BD.19178 Grill at Rear of Bonnet uses both two BD.17290 Thread Cutting Fix and two UFS.419/4H Screw with C.723/A washer to affix the grill to the bonnet. I think the BD.17290 is a sheet metal nut similar to Jaguar Stud Nut - BD-21040 Used in conjunction with BD-20887. As shown here: http://xks.c...

Re: Front Bumper and Badge-Bar, tweaking them to fit to bonnet.

Thanks for the in depth discussion of a procedure I will have to do in the future. I am thinking about the change in angle of the bumper blade as it is adjusted to be closer to the body in the horizontal plane referenced to the midline through the center of the car. Not a problem on the rear. The fr...

Re: Advice on diff input seal

Stephen, 3.8 diff pinion has two shim adjustments on the pinion with a set distance spacer, not a crush sleeve. One shim adjustment sets the dept of the mesh of the gear faces. The second adjustment sets the tapered bearing free play on the two pinion bearings. There are other differential shim adju...

Re: A different approach to Engine Stand Adapters

Great share of the sideways mounting. I will make a holder for my next engine rebuild. Here is a change I like that allows locking the engine in any orientation by clamping the round adapter tube in the engine stand holder. Slit the engine stand and weld two plates and add a bolt. Tighten the bolt a...

Re: Series 1 3.8 cooling fan

Yes, David you are correct with the B/D designation as there are suffixes on the part number and it depends on where you look. Lucas catalogs list with a B/D and later with a D only. The price listing only has the number without suffixes. In Jaguar parts books the August 1961 has a B suffix only and...

Looking through all my Lucas books I finally figured it out. All E-Types with the single fan have 78378 mounted on the engine side of the radiator pulling the air through. A second identical looking fan for Air Conditioned (AC) cars 78462. I have not found an AC book to confirm mounting and blade. B...
