Re: History tracing

Welcome to the forum
Have you been in touch with Jaguar Heritage to get a certificate? Also the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club https://jec.org.uk/ can be very helpful in talks with the DVLA.

Re: Colour

Just to throw another variable into the mix. My Light Blue S2 was parked next to three other light blue S2s last year. No two were the same (correct?) colour. :shrug:

Re: Wiper motor parking issue

Andy, why not try looking at Beaulieu Auto Jumble this weekend? Or Stoneleigh in October. The armature will probably fit other wiper motors and you could compare with items down there. Did I read somewhere the basic unit is similar to one from a Scimitar? Is it the same park switch as a mini and the...

Re: Rob Beere

Their clutch easy bleed kit seems a very good idea. Planning to get one this autumn when there's time to fit it.
Very helpful, friendly people to talk to and I know of a few people on the forum who have had engine work/rebuilds done by them and have been very pleased.

Re: RIP Andrew Waugh

Very sad to hear. It'd be nice if there was a way that the family could be aware of these condolences as I'm sure they would appreciate the respect so many people had for him. RIP Andrew

Re: Carb jet height/depth conundrum

An update after driving the car with the above jet height/depth set up using the Gunson. The fuel consumption has improved to circa 23-24 mpg and that's motorway cruising at the national speed limit, no loss of get up and go, either. I'm pleased with that and will accept the conundrum regarding the ...

I've just renewed mine and tried to get track day cover included. Footman James gave a sensible quote to include it, Peter James would charge a lot, but what they both emphasised is that Participant to Participant Liability is not included. So if you stuff your pride and joy into someone's recently ...

Re: Carburettor banjo fibre washer leaks

Visiting Burlen to buy washers, they showed me a selection which were of different diameters and certainly wouldn't fit nicely into the shoulder area of the banjo and I don't think the ally washers will at all.
They didn't seem at all concerned about the poor fit :shrug:

Re: Carburettor banjo fibre washer leaks

Phil, those fibre washers are poor IMHO, although they do an aluminium washer alternative but I've found that can be just as prone to leaks. The faces of the fuel bowls and pipe joints can often do with a good skim to get them flat, I've found, but that's a complete dismantle job. Oh for a decent ru...
