Re: Quick Release Steering Wheel

Simon, you’ll have to add one of those bosses to my ever increasing list of needs and wants, please :wink: I agree with your point of leaving the steering on full left or right lock and always try to do that when parking. Removing the steering wheel might deter the opportunist thief from trying in t...

Re: Unknown Parts

Graeme, the accelerator pedals are different LHD to RHD which will help explain why these look different and the lack of cut out in RHD carpets. Have you got the SNG Barratts excellent catalogues for the E Type with all parts very clearly shown? SC Parts also have clear parts catalogues. These will ...

Re: Garage / workshop

Tony, you need a pretty Swedish au pair to keep the workshop tidy for you 8-)
Even better if she knows the difference between a spanner and a screwdriver
“Do you want a screwdriver?” “Not now love, can’t you see I’m busy” :lol:

Re: looking for early FHC rear light seals

You could try COH Baines (https://coh-baines.co.uk/), whether they also supply the ones Barratts sell I don’t know but a lot of owners go to Baines

Re: Wipers won't stop

Gerhard, most electrical problems take a lot of time tracing the individual elements. Please take the switch out and check each part. If that is ok, then you can look at the park switch in the motor. Unfortunately, this can be the problem of needing to eliminate each part of the circuit to find whic...

Re: Wipers won't stop

Gerhard, can you tell us which series your car is, wiring changes with series (add it to your signature at the bottom)
Can you easily remove the switch and check the connections against the wiring diagram to see if the switch shows correct continuity in each position?

Good luck

Re: Chocks Away !

Dave, a slight correction to dates. The prototype K5054 first flew on 5th March 1936, it was the first production Spitfire K9787 that was flown on 15 May 1938. Still they were both Spitfires :wavegreatbritain:

Re: Rear Suspension, ride height

Steve, et al, my car on standard springs and Jeremy's on CMC's spring both sit about 8 inch IRS plate to ground and the front and rear wheel arches are the same height and the cars look symmetrical fore/aft. Mine also has renewed front suspension parts and all dimensions were correct. How does 50EE ...

Re: Door lock in handle slot orientation? Up, Down, Both?

Chris, I think this is where the difference with (some) 2+2s is, Simon's is an OTS and like the FHC the lock is in the handle push button. All helps to confuse :shrug:

I was sooooo tempted to say that originally they would both have been the same way up just to send Simon into orbit.....

Malcolm, aren't 2+2 locks different?

Edited to add: I do wish you hadn't posted that Malcolm, it'll set him off again. :roll:

Re: Garage / workshop

Thanks Steve, they might help. I was also thinking of it being used to store one car above another, hence the thought of two posts. Could do with the extensions you posted above to support by the wheels so no load is left on the IRS for long periods. But that is a good suggestion, must collar one or...

Re: Garage / workshop

I wouldn't mind finding a two post lift where both post are on the same side, one for the front, one for the rear of the car with arms to reach out far enough. That way I wouldn't have a post in the middle of my double garage and the two posts could be bolted at the side wall and not take up space i...

Geoff, that mark on the front wing is merely a scratch sustained while running a police car off the road during a high-speed chase
Phew, that had me worried it might have been serious

Though notice you spend ten times as much as me to get the same springs :wink:
