Re: Original Late E Series II refresh as it unfolds (Aug 1970 Build)

Dana, all best wishes that the big C surgery will do the job and give you lots more QTR. You've a good car there and I've enjoyed reading about your restoration. May you have many more miles in her.

Re: New member

Welcome to the forum, you will get lots of help and advice here. You may find getting a 2+2 from the USA the answer as so many E Types went there. The big problem with E Types is rust in the body, which is expensive to fix. Try to look at lots of cars, not just 2+2, you'll learn what to look for. An...

Ash: 240mm to centre of bolt head. My front suspension was renewed and set up a year or two ago and everything was in normal geometry range.

Re: Acoustic Cameras

Jack Heuer insisted the winder be placed on the left to highlight the fact. He aimed them at the racing and pilot fraternity Was he left handed, assumed all pilots and racing drivers were left handed? Can't understand a reason for the winding crown to be on the left, except to be different? :shrug:...

Re: Britax Ignition switch

Chris, be aware the XJ6 column lock is a different length to the E Type one. My E Type key lock had been abused and I was able to transfer the key lock from the XJ6 unit. Also I needed a new switch part so have used that as well to make a complete new unit to fit an E. As Steve says you could just u...

Re: Britax Ignition switch

I was able to use an ignition barrel from an XJ6 to make up a new steering lock/ignition switch. It'll mean some modifications to the wiring out of the barrel, but do-able. Might be worth searching for one on fleabay

Our second Prescott with the E Type Register and my first time driving the E up the hill. It is a very fun day out, good people to meet, decent lunch in the restaurant (or take a picnic) and great views across the countryside. My leisurely drive up the hill broke no records (as Chris says, nothing c...

Palnut on steering column

Jaguar fit a palnut on the steering wheel/column as a safety feature to stop the main nut from loosening off. But why a palnut and not a shakeproof washer or similar? Wouldn't they do the same job? Yes, they are reusable which is one advantage but ten or more times the price of a shakeproof or lock ...
