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..

Re: 3.8 Indicator white plastic cancelling ring

I have one more question on the cancelling ring issue. It seems my striker has the 'tongue ' broken. It's probably part no c16451. This is how it looks like: http://i.imgur.com/gKfAiMG.jpg Anyone has a ring like mine and could possibly measure the total length of this tongue? I would be most gratefu...

Re: 3.8 Indicator white plastic cancelling ring

Marek, can you share a photo of the cancelling ring?

Also, I was looking for someone that remakes the plastic end of the indicator stalk - anyone out there does it?..

Thanks David.

I wonder if the silver one is not actually older..

Lucas PL700 Headlamps

Suits me, as being in Poland, I am in the clear. (not that there was ever an e-type delivered new to Poland... ) Anyway, ...

Re: Has the S1 bonnet been painted as one piece?

I do know how to protect the edges... :-) I have: - stripped the bonnet apart, - soda blasted, - removed all rust (there was not much), - cadmium plated all the fasteners, - then painted the all the assembly edges with the final coat. Finally the bodyshop realigned all the parts and reassembled the ...

Re: Has the S1 bonnet been painted as one piece?

I apologize, I must have phrased my question incorrectly.

My question is: how was the bonnet painted by the factory, originally, back in the 60ies??

I know he one can do it nowdays, I am interested how Jaguar did it :-)

Has the S1 bonnet been painted as one piece?

I have a quick question,
Has the S1 bonnet been painted as 1 piece?

I have a feeling it did, but maybe some panels were removed to facilitate painting of some areas (behind headlams, for eample?)

Re: Very early handbrake / parking brake calipers

Aren't these the same as on the XK150?

If so, they are not that uncommon...

Re: original profile interior

Hi, They are exactly the same profile as the BD19029/1 bonnet trim, which is available from SNG, for example. You just have to bend them to shape. Bonet trim: BD19029/1 - 53" The so called Finisher Bead comes in 3 pieces in 3 lengths on the later S1 cars: BD24414 - 51" - above the windows. BD20191/2...

Re: Koolmat 2018

Of course, though it comes in 5mm and 10mm thicknesses, so there are options.

And do not be fooled - there are disadvantages to it, too. It's fibreglass type material, so you have to seal (paint it) it properly.

Re: koolmat 2018

David, the Wikipedia page you mentioned contains the R value of Aerogel - Pyrogel same product. It's 10. I guess the higher value the better. Tadek Koolmat being an American company use 'R' values for resistance to heat flow, which is the ratio of the temperature difference across an insulator and t...

Re: koolmat 2018

David, The key question here (I believe) is not really how well it it glued but what is its thermal conductivity. I was trying to find the thermal conductivity of Koolmat, but without success. Styrofoam is about 33-50 mW/m-K (at 0C) Pyrogel is 20 mW/m-K (at 0C) (The thermal conductivity of course in...
