My E isn't on the road since 1 1/2 year. It's a too long time.
This detail is going to stay a detail ( but also a thorn in the side)
Thanks all

Re: Firing Order

Jerry, Steve, I remember very well this page of course. It's important. 45° angle, the small half is on the left the largeur on the right. You check this without the head on the engine so it's really easy to see that the 6 and 1 are at their DTC. I think my mistake came purhaps from the nuts hole on...

Re: Removing rear wheel bearings

Hi Tom, On the seat of the outer wheel bearing ( Timken 18590-18520), there is two notches. Clean the inside hub very closely and you'll see what I mean. You can easily remove the wheel with a axle and a hammer. You work from inside to outside. If you can, warm the Aluminium hub to make the iron whe...

He or she is consumed by the notion that there is a better Jaguar to be had in trade for the one(s) in the garage. Most of those afflic...

Re: Wire Wheel Spanner

Funny!
When a key is usually indicated to tighten 1/2" bolts, what do you use to loosen them?
If you are happy with your piece of wood, it's ok for me. No problems at all. :shrug:

Re: Wire Wheel Spanner

I bought the one which cost 169.00€ and it's not a big price for the tool I received.
They are obliged to give a so big torque.
1 - They don't want any responsability if there is an accident.
2 - They say by this hight torque that their tool can resist to this.
Intelligent marketing.
