Re: Engine out

I have removed and reinstalled my engine and gearbox as one unit quite a few times by myself and it is a relatively quick and easy task with a standard mobile engine crane. As mentioned when it comes out it is all a bit top heavy and can tip so be careful. I remove the radiator and top cross member ...

Re: Made in Taiwan

As Abowie said, where do you think parts like these are made these days - there is nothing wrong with Taiwanese industry - for that matter, there is nothing wrong with Chinese parts as it is the businesses that commissions the parts are the fault - the Chinese just make to the standard and costs ord...

Re: oil smoke on startup

Isn't 20-50 oil a bit heavy for a brand new engine, I would have thought 20W-40 would have been more suitable.

Re: Foam deadening

Sorry but they are leather, does it really matter?

Re: Series 3 roadster 1972

I assume you want to know if the head restraints can be raised or lowered - answer is yes - just pull up or down.

Re: What is this ? Dynaplastics Hardtop ?

The rear of the cabin area is curved - that has a straight flat window so will not match the contour of the body - so most likely not for an etype.

Re: Series 3 headrests

The headrests are adjustable and there is a standard bracket to guide the seat belt on later cars.

Re: Boot Floor Drain tubes - S3 2+2 FHC

As what Rob said - the branched pipe takes water (spilled fuel) from under the fuel filler flap and water from the left side rear door gutter, and the right pipe takes water from the right side rear door gutter - there should be holes at the bottom of either side and if you look from under a small p...

Re: newb wondering what it takes to fit a V12

Daniel,

Anything is possible, indeed Jaguar did it to the Series 2 2+2 coupe in development work for the Series 3.

But as advised - why would you?

Re: How to fasten seat belt retainer

I cannot speak for later series 3 but early series 3s did not have these clips as they did not have retractable seat belts. As a result early seats do not have the mounting points for these clips in the seat frames. I understand later seats do but I am not sure.

UK specs dont have that - I assume just vents into the expansion tank near the fuel filler.

Although Garry's advice to have it tuned is sound, London is very very different from Canberra !
My figures are from when I lived in Hambledon in Hampshire and the car was used most days - is an auto as well.

Having said that - figures here in Australia are the same.

Re: mPG

I kept detailed fuel records for my V12 - worst ever is 12.5mpg and best ever was 17.5mpg - normally around 14 -16mpg.

So at 7.5mpg you have an issue - get the car tuned/looked at.
