Re: Torsion bar help

Hi Neal,
They have been out of the car for nearly one year.
Your solution is the most logical.
I just bought a new pair but I'm going to set up the one I have.
Thanks!

Re: getting a wheel 'orf!

Hi
You could check if the spinner isn't a bad aftermarket in first.
If not, tighten normaly the spinner, do a short travel and try to undo it and see what will hapen.

Torsion bar help

Good morning everyone, I'm having a problem with my ride height. I used the tool according to the Jaguar 17"13/16 ( 45.24 cm ) drawing to adjust my original 1965 torsion bars which are in the right side L R. The bushes of the lower and upper wishbone and the anti-roll bar were tightened once the car...

Re: General Handling S2

Hi The E-Types are very flexible in suspension compared to your BMW. The brakes also have a very strongly accentuated distribution at the front. When you brake hard, the "mass transfer" causes the front to plunge and the rear to lift. If at this moment you give a big push on the accelerator, the rea...

Re: Engine rebuild - almost done!..

I bought a cheap rev conter connected to the coil
From the car I used the water temp and oil pressure dash, the power contact and the push to start the engine.
I also used a switch for an extra fan on the radiator.
Thats all

Re: Engine rebuild - almost done!..

Why don't you built a mini jig to put your engine on ? Built a small wiring. Connect the minimum of the exhaust. COnnect the radiator. Connect you fuel pump to a jerrycan and start your engine out of the car. You could also validate your clutch and gearbox. If here is a fault you'll can repair it re...

Re: Speedometer cable clip?

Hi, Yes it's for the speedo cable. You'll find it in a lot of supplier. " The clip supports the speedometer cable where it runs over the geabox. The brackets are different for LHD and RHD; part #C17410 for RHD and C18128 for LHD and available from Richard Smith or SNGB. This is the fitting on a LHD ...

The front frame has just been repainted. the bush of the header tank and the radiator are new. I looked at all the photos ...

Re: Spinners stuck and wheels stuck on!

Hi, Certainly a stupid question but do you turn in the good way ? The "undo" on the spinner is'nt the same for left and right. If the way is ok, the last guy who touched your wheels tightened them too much. Try with a "truck" ratchet 3/4" and a long bar. If it's very tighten a hammer is going to hur...
