Re: Horn works when steering wheel is turned (very annoying)

Robert, it would help if you told us which series car you have, S2 has different horn control to S1.
Add it to your signature. Sorry can't help otherwise

Call the doctor? I think it's too late, Rory. You've obviously not been taking your medicine properly.

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' ...

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.

Re: Overwintering ...synthetic petrol

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: 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...
