Re: Brake control assembly - washer question

Re: Sovy Failure

I had 3 that were: - split at the seam (hose end) on arrival - hardly an assembly fault - split on the seam at the bottom, - leaking near mounting, either due to poor mounting or due to fatigue. In the last 2 cases they were not leaking after the installation, they were however leaking after a (shor...

Re: Sovy Failure

I will have to take a good look at mine -for my own car - I think they are actually not leaking, they are just yelowish. David, there was a very good article I saw somewhere (and foolishly did not save) which explained a process of restoring old plastic bottles. I remember a part of this process was...

Re: Sovy Failure

Marek, et al. The round and square bottles break in numerous places - not just the bottom. I think the problem is with the plastic that is being used. I have reported the problem to SNG few years back, but unfortunately all I got was a replacement. Which cracked as well. I have again reported this 2...

Re: Selling a classic car on French website?

Selling a classic car on French website?

Apologies, as this is not strictly Jaguar related... Hello to all French friends here... I have a quick question - I need to sell a Peugeot 504 cabrio I have, and I thought France might be the best country to sell it in. The car is unfortunately incomplete, but has a good body. Can you recommend a c...

Was the PPPP stamped on the nuts in the 60ies?

Re: C17544 special washer under air intake box wing nuts

David, once again, many thanks!

One more item relating to the plenum are the C4202/2 nuts used all the way from XK120. They were nickel plated on the XK120, but I would probably believe they were cad plated on the e-type?

Would you know if they were they still stamped PPPPP?

C17544 special washer under air intake box wing nuts

Would anyone have the original C17544 washer for air intake box wing nuts?

It's not a standard one, so it could be wider, thicker or might have special finish..


Would anyone help?

Welding 3.8 block?

I seem to have a problem with one of the water passages in the block:

Does anyone know how weldable is the iron on these blocks?

Or are there other modern methods that are better?

Sandblasting. This is mine on my '53 OTS. http://i.imgur.com/yQs0LuR.jpg Tadek I’ve noticed that Pilkington reproductions, albeit excellent, do not have the dots.

Re: Decoding Triplex glass numbers ?

I think it's LSG - Laminated, Sheet Glass Again, M12 at the bottom is a manufacturer code. The WG mark is interesting. On Triplex glass, there was a WF designation, meaning Front Windshield qulity, used since '65. Tadek I found with some surprise that my car has received a new windshield in its form...

Re: Decoding Triplex glass numbers ?

Here is a more definitive answer: AS1 means glass is with at least 70% transmission and can be used anywhere on a vehicle (by default used on the windshield), AS2 is used for side glass. TRIPLEX brand and trademark- the XXX logo. The logo was inscribed in a circle made of 4 arches for laminated glas...
