Re: Replica Marston radiator for 1962 3.8 FHC

I think Fosseway is also just by Jaguar for their projects. At least that's what Fosseway told me few years back.

Re: Routing of the starter cable on a 3.8 - again.

Many thanks Andrew.

Do you have any photos of the way it gets to the bottom rail on the LHS? The natural way would be the upper rail....

Routing of the starter cable on a 3.8 - again.

There are posts on the forum that say the cable is routed on top of the the bottom rail of the picture frame and there are photos that say it's routed under the top rail. http://forum.etypeuk.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=8309&hilit=starter+cable http://forum.etypeuk.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=3488&hilit=sta...

Re: S1 (4.2) vs S3

You should try a Austin Healey 100.

The 4 cylinder, almost 3 liter engine can start in _any_ gear. A very low reving engine, too.

Re: Engine parts recommendations

Mike,

I think Mahle should be available for pistons and (all) engine bearings except for the thrust washers.

SNG sells them, but they maybe others.

Re: Sng manifolds.

Julian, You should probably add that if the carburettors are unbalanced, they will crack as well. One will be much hotter than the other and this will cause cracks sooner or later. BTW, there are enamelling companies here in Poland still, if you loose the one you have now contact me. They have done ...

FL5 Flasher Dated 5/62 for grabs

I have no affiliation with the seller, but there is an e-type flasher for a late '62 car on Australian ebay:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/233733482427?ul_noapp=true


A bit expensive to ship to Europe, but for Aussies with a late '62 car a good deal :-)

Re: Am I ready to fit the engine in??

Well, It was easier than I thought! The engine went right in. It's still suspended, in order to unladen the frame, but it's secured on the gearbox end, the reaction plate is in and the anchor brackets for the torsion bars are all in place. I just need to tighten it all up. I have the picture frame i...

Re: Service & Spares Bulletin Database

Phil,

Fantastic work --

I just wanted to say that (almost) any PDF can be OCRed and in turn made searchable.

If you place all the PDF's in one directory, using Crtl-Shift-F you can actually search through entire library of PDF's.

Let me know If I can be of help with OCRing,

Best Regards, Tadek

I am couple of weeks into assembly of my S1 3.8 FHC '63. I think I am ready to fit the engine in, however before I do try to fit it in, I turn to the collective wisdom here.. I will be installing it through the front, with the picture frame off. Once the engine will be in position (but still support...

Thanks Bob. Have you by any chance found any other clips except for the ones mentioned on JL on the post I did??..
