Re: Air conditioning experiences

No this car is a long way from me - as you indicated this is still the left hand drive system where the one Holeshot has in his car is a RHD system that I have not seen before. I agree that there was no real reason why RHD cars could not have had AC - numbers would have made it worthwhile. On this c...

Re: Air conditioning experiences

I am surprised that some of the Guru's have not been along to discuss your factory RHD A/C. I wonder how the Concourse Guides for RHD cars would now have to be rewritten as currently A/C in a car would drop a heap of points.

Re: Air conditioning experiences

That dash arrangement is a mirror image of the LHD version - so no cutting required. I have never seen or heard of that before and I have been into Series 3s for 35 years and looked extensively into A/C for RHD series 3s. I am surprised the Series 3 authenticity experts have not been along to discus...

Re: Air conditioning experiences

Hi Hilton - certainly looks like the LHD AC in your RHD car. This is the LHD version https://farm1.staticflickr.com/844/43630036861_18406dc950_z.jpg E Type AC4 by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/150171671@N02/] If yours is the same as the LHD version it will have the right hand end trimmed to fit...

Re: Air conditioning experiences

Hi Hilton - my understanding is that factory A/C could only be fitted to LHD cars in the Series 3. However dealers often fitted aftermarket A/C as part of the delivery process. Here in Australia A/C could be specified when a car was ordered but was fitted locally, from local units by the dealer prio...

My Jag is a UK car with original AC fitted.

I am assuming that if it has original AC it is a left hand drive car?

If it is RHD what AC has it got as the OEM A/C was for LHD only.

Thanks

Oh yes - it is peak season (terrorist season) for grey nomads up north as it is cold down south. If you havn't got your site by about 3.30 in the afternoon - forget it.

Re: Fresh Air Vents

Turn the heater off, turn on the fan (or drive real fast) and you will have cold air coming out the standard vents under the dash or even the demister vents on top of the dash. That air comes from the front of the car in a duct on the passenger side of the engine bonnet air intake. When the air come...

Re: Fresh Air Vents

My car is a Jul/Aug 71 build and it has the vents under the dash on either side. These are feed via the trunking built into the bonnet that feeds air just on the passenger side into the fan and heater box. The round knurled knobs on the front of the dash control the air to the under dash vents and a...

Re: Removing 4.2 Engine

Thanks for the discussion - will be pushing the car out of the garage today to turn it around so that there is space for the engine hoist.

Cheers

Re: Removing 4.2 Engine

Thanks Andrew - it is a T5 built by Mal Woods in Brisbane with his rear housing - and sold retail by Spitiri.

So it is a drop below then :cry:

I will pass on the message.

Removing 4.2 Engine

My neighbour has a 66 Series 1 4.2 Coupe which as a T5 gearbox. Two years ago he had to remove the engine/gearbox to fix something and noticed a small oil leak of gearbox oil from the bell housing. For better or worse he decided to not do any thing about it. In removing the engine/gearbox he raised ...

Re: Mud flaps for Series 3?

A had generic mudflaps on my car for years and they worked fine - unfortunately with a black car and black tyres they do not stand out in pics of my car. They just screws to the inner wheel arches with self taper screws. They were the standard rubber style similar to these. https://www.motoquipe.com...

Re: Gearbox cover - series 3 ?

Does a manual gearbox cover fit the auto transmission tunnel which is a bit wider than the manual.

I also did a conversion and was sent a fibreglass version that fits the auto tunnel but the top where the gear lever comes out at the top.

Re: Feeling a little low!

Noting of course that he does not have 70 series tyres fitted - he has 65 series and while there is not a lot in it, it may be just enough to scrap high bits.

Re: Feeling a little low!

The cars are naturally low - get the correct tyres (or the 215s if they fit) and adjust the front suspension up on the snail cams.
