Re: Restoring / Rechroming Wiper Arms - RIVETS!

Hi Paul,

I have a similar problem. I thought of actually remaking them.

If you do not find them, we might team up :-).

Let me know,

I thought I would report that the bracket fits correctly on the original Jaguar muffler.

Re: Rear Bumpers & Rubber Lip Seals

When you grind, do not overheat the bumper.

And let us know what it was you grinded off.

I can bet Bill it was copper :bigrin:

Re: Rear Bumpers & Rubber Lip Seals

Hi Stu, It looks like it's a result of a re-chroming process. The layer of copper applied on badly corroded bumpers gets thick. The plater sand it down on the outside, but they are unable (or do not bother) to sand it in the inside. This is the way the bumper grows in thickness and in weight... Espe...

Re: Nylon fuel pipe

Gents, I think you are trying to make rocket science out of something quite simple. :-)

Just heat up the banjo, heat the pipe a little so that it's flexible (50C is enough) and slide it in.

If you overheat the pipe, just cut a bit off.

Re: central armrest for late 3.8 hinge arrangement question

Looks great - many thanks!

Yours is a '64 right?
- did you have the hinge stop originally?

I know it was there on the S2 and possibly on the 4.2 versions..

BTW, we have exactly the same colour combination :-)

Did you by any chance leave the original upholstery?

central armrest for late 3.8 hinge arrangement question

I am not quite sure how to assemble the armrest hinge assembly could anyone help with some photos please? There is a hinge, a metal plate called stop plate (BD26002, at least on the 4.2) I am missing photos of how this is assembled together. There is also a piece of plastic that should stop the armr...

Re: Nylon fuel pipe

I bought it at length from Aston (it was actually not that expensive and I wanted to make sure the quality is OK) but it extended few cm over next 2 days. I am not sure what will the outcome be. HOWEVER, on a previous attempt I bought one from an e-bay seller in US and his extended considerably over...

Taiwan, officially is _the_ "Republic of China".

I think there is nothing wrong with parts made anywhere in the world, as long as they are made RIGHT.

Re: Lucas 2FP pump

Thanks - yes changing the wires is understandable, as otherwise it would run in the opposite direction.. :-)

However, as the pump body is earthed to the car, the body of the fuel pump becomes now negatively earthed, but I guess since the wires are reversed too, it will not cause an issue.

Re: Lucas 2FP pump

I thought I would revive an old thread. I managed to purchase a NOS 2FP few years back for my e-type. Once I finalny cleared all obstacles to install the fuel tank, I wanted ot fit the pum and test it - unfortunately it did not work. I took it out on a bench, and all it could do was to pump the fuel...

Re: looking for TRIPLEX logos for '68 & '69

Thanks so much Gerry,

The side windows look definitely original, but I think the front one and the rear might be original, too. The '69 was the year when TRIPLEX switched to the painted logos.

What's really a mystery is the monthly dating system on these '68 glass pieces.

Many thanks!

Re: looking for TRIPLEX logos for '68 & '69

Gerry, The side window sees to be from '68, as there is a dot under "E" in toughened. Can you take a look at other (TRIPLEX) glass? What is unusual, is that the monthly dating (as opposed to quarterly dating) started from January '69.. So, either the dating method actually came in earlier or the you...
