Re: SNG Barratt

Julian, can I ask about the Horn Push Assembly (C16070) you sell? Unfortunately, it does not replicate the original, colour, size of Growler. Is there a reason for this, for example copyright? In that JLR will not let you make exact copies? Or you decided against in case you were infringing copyrigh...

Re: Evans Waterless Coolant

Evans did a presentation recently where they said their system was the same as in Spitfire's Merlin engines as they ran on pure glycol. I had to correct them and point out that although RR first tried glycol only cooling they soon found out that a mix of glycol and water gave better cooling. Evans' ...

Re: Tyres

I've a 2014 year Michelin 205/70 R15 with less than 2000 miles use and still in good condition. If you are buying Michelin then this could be a useful spare. One way of reducing your total expenditure :shrug:

Julian, welcome to the forum and thank you for your willingness to put your head above the parapet. Unfortunately most of us, me included, are too willing to remember the bad experiences and not all the good ones. The good ones are much greater than the bad ones and I'm very grateful for the help I ...

David, you say the lead shot was in S1 OTS, do you know why it wasn't used for the S2 or S3?

Re: Overwintering ...synthetic petrol

what is the current legislation regarding the use of fuel containing ethanol in light aircraft? I seem to remember it was illegal, is that still the case? Simon With the caveat that I've hung up my headset, ethanol and aircraft fuel systems and engines don't go well together. Attacking rubber compo...

Re: Overwintering ...synthetic petrol

Get out more, Simon :wink:
Let's throw a cat among the pigeons and suggest you use aviation fuel, 100LL, which has the advantage of not losing its octane rating over the winter and is a far more stable fuel than car petrol.

Re: FACTORY FIT - Series 1 4.2

David, are all these recent additions coming from Steve's car you mention above?
Is there a story to be told of such a low mileage car in such good condition?

David, why not chat to Angus Moss: https://www.mossjaguar.com/index.html He has imported and restored quite a few E Types and will give you an honest appraisal of what is involved, also, if you give him all the information you have from the seller he could assess it, as best as can be done without i...

Re: Heater comparison S3 Vs S1/2

Richard, thanks, I bought one of those from Clayton Classics at Beaulieu. It should help. As I have an S3 heater, which with a bit of adjustment could fit an S2, then it seemed worth finding out from those who know whether it could work as an upgrade, with one of the curved deflectors and perhaps a ...

Heater comparison S3 Vs S1/2

There are various upgrades for the heaters on the S1 and S2, using Fiero parts, options from suppliers for new motors, fans and heater matrixes. But how does the S3 heater compare? The fan shroud is deeper and the fan looks deeper, though the same diameter. Is the heater matrix more substantial? Any...

Re: Door mirrors

The "lifesaver check" is still valid on modern cars as much as on an E Type with mirrors.

Re: Door mirrors

Tricky, from what I've read door mirrors were optional extras often fitted by the dealers. I fitted mirrors to both doors on my S2 and feel much happier in traffic giving you better situational awareness, especially for seeing the idiots barrelling up behind you, whether trying to overtake or at spe...
