Re: Restoring Carburettors - Tips, Methods ?

I always use a vertical/ turret milling machine to drill the holes in the shaft, also you need a taper pin reamer as the pins are tapered . I can clamp the shaft in a vice & plot the hole in the centre of it , it does help having a machine shop. It is worth going to find your local machine shop & ge...

Re: Instrument bezel replacement advice please.

Hi Simon. Its best to fit the glass to the bezels first & then twist them on to the instrument case. With the small instruments you can get the glass in the bezel with the tags turned over first. With the speedo etc you will have to place the glass in the bezel & then bend down the tags, then twist ...

Could you tell me the colour of the wire going to the upper brush holder in the picture.
Also for a RHD car should the crank on the motor rotate anti clockwise.

Re: Cost of new glass

No I just ordered it, thanks to Angus taking his original screen there & Pilkingtons modifying their mould tool all is now well.
Buy the way I have a S1 FHC just check that the screens are the same.

Re: Cost of new glass

I had a new screen for my FHC last year from Pilkingtons & it was a perfect fit no problems at all.
They were also very helpful.
It takes longer to fit the chromes even when using the original ones.

Re: The end for the MOT for vehicles of historic interest

You will still be able to take your E-type & have it tested if you want to. When they stopped testing pre 1960 cars I still had my XK120 tested every year. Just had my E-type MOT yesterday ( passed) & the tester confirmed just bring it back next year. I know some people will not bother & stop but it...

Re: Plastic sleeving on tabs for harness/fuel pipes?

You can buy PVC sleeving from Auto Electric Supplies in a large range of sizes which means you can get a size which is a good fit & no need to use the heat gun. It only costs pence per metre so you can try a few different sizes.
