Differential output flange not true?

I am wondering weather this is common. My differential output flange (the one sitting on the output shaft and the one that you bolt the rotors to) is not true. They are are untrue by about 0.1mm, which I think is quite a bit. It results in much higher values at edge of the rotor (about 0.6mm) Is thi...

Re: Series 1 bonnet wiring loom fixation points ?

NOTE PLEASE: the measurements I have given to you are for the narrower net!

There seem to be 2 types and I just realized this after buying off ebay the wrong one :-(

Anyone knows for which e-type is the narrower net??

Fuel Pipe Clip C3727

This clip was always a small problem, as I could never source them looking like original and the repros that SNG sells brake very easily. They are used on XKs but also I think 2 are used on the S1 near the IRS. I have discovered one looking original: https://www.mgbits.com/contents/en-uk/p6046_Clip-...

S3 hub cap medallion for S1 horn push?

I read somewhere, that the S3 hub cap can be used for horn push. I was wondering if this is true and does it involve any modifications?

The horn push button does have the brass insert, I presume the hub cap does not :-)

Re: Upper late S3 steering column modification?

So, here is the final result: http://i.imgur.com/CjDNpui.jpg There are 2 possible drawbacks: 1. I had to machine my steering shaft down to 28mm (originally it's about 30mm, however mine was damaged). The brass contact collar is 28.7mm, meaning that once the bearing is inserted, it cannot be removed ...

HK2520
HK2820

5 GBP in total here if you take Timken or Torrington.

Not the highest investment you can make in an e-type....

I just need to machine the parts. 2-3 weeks and I should be able to show results.

Upper late S3 steering column modification?

I was wondering about a fairly simple and pretty hidden modification and I was wondering if anyone thinks there might be something wrong with the idea. Instead of using the Vulkollan or other plastic rings, I could simply use 2 bearings as on the photo: http://i.imgur.com/QQ8Tnnp.jpg?1 It does not r...

Re: Blower motor spindle

Machine the casing so you can get the 3 pronged clip out. You can see it's hammered in 4 places.
replace the bearing brass ball and re-fix the clip.

Even if you do not brake the clips while trying to put the ball back, you will bend them beyond the point of return.

Re: 3.8 Indicator white plastic cancelling ring

Simon,

Does this setup require the plastic ring?? I can't see it in the part's manual..

I have a '63 3.8 and am wondering if I need the plastic cancelling ring - it was not there when I bought te car, but then the steering column was in a mess..
