TRIPLEX logos research - a bit of help needed

I have been researching the TRIPLEX logos on Jaguars for quite some time. Here goes a fairly complete sheet with logos for different glass of the e-type. https://i.postimg.cc/wvTzYXcv/ALL-LOGOS-e-type-for-print2.jpg As you can see, I am missing some of the logos, for example I do not have any ’64 gl...

Re: Air intake trumpet

Would it not be the same silver as used on the headlamp scoops?

Re: Camshaft plugs - necessary?

What I wonder about is weather this possible leak through the adjuster plate is not a way to lubricate the timing chain setup..

Re: Camshaft plugs - necessary?

Thanks Andrew,

The bolts are there just to turn the cam..

So, if the plug is not there, how was the system pressurized? Is the sprocket adjusting plate blocking the oil ??

Camshaft plugs - necessary?

I am finally almost done assembling my head and am wondering if the plugs at the front of the camshaft should be installed. The original ones do not have them, however the ones from Kent Cams do: Kent Cams: https://i.postimg.cc/MpkdDZZ8/DSC-0913.jpg Original: https://i.postimg.cc/x8J3vhWC/DSC-0916.j...

Re: RHS Undershield Panel - special edition for 1.5?

Could it be special to 2+2??

My friend's car is also a 2+2, late 1.5 car - 1E77309BW.

RHS Undershield Panel - special edition for 1.5?

Could this panel on an e-type S1.5 be original?

The SPC for S2 (and S1) show the panel looking different:

Was the 1.5 special or this is home made?

Re: Opalescent Golden Sand Colour varioations

Many thanks for your help -

The darker colour has a definite orange/red tune in it which makes it darker.
The 'later' lighter shade seems more pale, so similar to what you describe Chis.

Most interesting - it would be great if we could get Alty Ian to comment.

Function of L position on BW8 automatic gearbox

I am trying to diagnose my friend's problems with his BW8 gearbox. I am not a fan of automatics, and I have a feeling it works differently than the more modern units. I understand L means "Lockup" not "Low", but how does it function? I presume D1 allows to drive in 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear and is a equ...

Re: How necessary is it to blend in the valve seats?

Well, Chesman has offered to redo the seat. As I am in the UK in 2 weeks, I will bring it over and have it redone there. They have done 3 heads for me and this is the first one there is a problem with, so I m optimistic. I do not think the seat is loose, but I have no way to check it as I am away th...

Re: How necessary is it to blend in the valve seats?

Well, I have no idea how Chesman (UK) did it, but however I turned the valve around to check if it's sealing properly, the gap was always in the same place - so the valve was (and still is) straight.

Re: How necessary is it to blend in the valve seats?

Just to make sure I am clear on this - I measured the 'space' available for the spring height across the cylinders, and here is how it looks now: Spring height space - Inlet [in] 1.1457 1.1697 1.1563 1.1484 1.1579 1.1575 Spring height space - exhaust [in] 1.1543 1.1614 1.1606 1.1539 1.1622 1.1610 Sp...
