Re: Fuel and Brake Lines

Should have read the first post properly as it did say 3.8 car.
What I said is correct for a 4.2 .
Sorry for the confusion .

Re: Fuel and Brake Lines

I have always run the fuel line on the drivers side for a RHD car, this is the same side as the fuel filter. It is fixed with P clips on the outside of the channel ( nearest the sill ) there are holes a long it for that reason. The brake line goes on the other side also outside the channel & uses sp...

Re: Re-commissioning Project

Hi Ed.
I am based near Crediton, when you get the car back to Devon I would be happy to talk it over with you.
As for hoses SNG or David Manners are all OK , I would stick with standard ones for now.
Good luck looks like a good project.

Re: A new direction in life

Hi Darren. Is it a change of job you want , or a burning desire to start your own business. If its the first with your skills any restoration firm would jump at the chance to employ you, knock on a few doors even if they have no adds for new staff. If its your own business how about working as a sub...

Re: Car jacking

I use a Thor nylon faced mallet No. 716 it has 2" dia faces & has a weight of 2 3/4 lbs. A big plus is that the ends screw in & can be replaced if need be & they will not mark the spinners. We use these hammers in the machine shop mostly on the mills to tap down parts before machining & they do not ...

Re: That’s what friends are for!

Hi Paul.
Looks like a great day, the XK120 is a lovely car to drive, I have been lucky enough to own & restore one.
Very different to drive than an E-type of course , but any XK engine is great to hear & drive.
Car looks great with the painted wire wheels.

Re: New battery recommendation

Hi Neil.
I use a Yuasa battery part number YBX3214 it fits very well . I have fitted a few & they last very well.
I get mine from BBL batteries good price too.
I have not had much luck with the old type of batteries I find the cases are prone to splitting .
Hope this helps Neal.

David. I zinc & clear pass mine , I dismantle them first then bead blast them ( you have to machine new pivot bolts to rivet over on re assembly ) then I get them plated. The ones on my FHC were plated about 6 years ago & still look good . I have just done the same on my DHC but very few miles yet. ...

Re: Help pls - Alternator voltage too high, blowing LEDs?

Many thanks Jeremy. I see what you are saying in that the diode just reduces the incoming voltage by 0.7 volts what ever that voltage is. It will not work if there is a higher spike in the voltage . You will also need to protect the extra brake light LED's that are part of the setup. I was hoping fo...

Did you need to cut the rubber in the window channel to get it to fit, or was there room for the bracket to slid in between the chrome & the rubber.
Thanks Neal.
