Re: FHC interior trim details

Hi Paul,
I hadn't the car near me so it was by memory and I was faulty.
I just check and the part which is covered with vinyl outside is not covered inside. It's painted gloss black.
Sorry, I did this there's a long time now.

Re: FHC interior trim details

Paul, That part is covered with vinyl outside and "in the box" with a sort of velvet but somebody could correct me. What I'm sure is that inside the finish state isn't paint. It's like a big glove box, so it must be trimmed everywhere. I look at the "B.A.S." web site they call the back part n°18 "Cu...

Re: FHC interior trim details

Hi Paul,
All the parts you can see when you are inside the car are covered.
If I understand well, the back side of the upstand behind the seats ( the part with hinges ) is trimmed both side.
The boot board are side/side in their jonction with very small gap
Hope it help you

Re: Value S1 Jag e-type 4.2 LHD Roadster

Hi Paul, Really I think the good question isn't " how much this would cost to buy?" but " how much am I able to spend to restore it?" For the car n°1 you just be persuaded that you are going to need a lot of money to have a valuaded car at last. Even if you are a pro for bodywork, mecanical and othe...

Re: Minimum thickness of the tappet

Thanks Christopher, I understand and didn't want to lose the valves!
I use old Shims for the new one.
The side with the old trace of the valve is machinning and place against the cap.
The intact side is against the valve.

Minimum thickness of the tappet

Hi all,
To have the good clearance on two exhaust valves I need to use a tappet in 0.0835 and one in 0.0845.
The minimum size we find is 0.085 and of course I 'm going to make the one I need but is there a problem using these extra small size ?

Re: Rear hub carrier - colour?

Hi Malc It is very difficult to paint aluminum properly and durably especially when it has been in contact with oil, grease and road pollution for 50 years. It is much easier to maintain if it is left as natural as it was originally. To clean them use brush and plenty of degreaser. We have "Restom" ...

Re: Rear hub carrier - colour?

Hi Malc,

It must stay in aluminium naturel.
No way painted.
Clean them and it will be ok for every body...

Re: Oil Pressure fluctuations

Hi Garry,

First change the sensor, it's cheap. After you'll see.
If it's the original sensor, it's well known to fail easily.

Re: Union Jack

It's preferable to have a Quick release steering wheel . Of course.

Arriving at a hotel with the steering wheel in your hand, people find you a little weird.
With the bag too ... but better

Re: Brake slave cylinder

Hi Thim, What I see is that your spring isn't compress and the pin isn't in place. The pin is inside the piston and dont block it as your's. The spring comes in support on the pin wich is just alittle bit longer than the axel. The difficulty is to compress the spring so that the hole's pin is free. ...

Re: Speedo drive cost

Hi Michel,

I worked with "Speedograph" and the work was really great !
Internal and face in KM/h.
The cost is arround 200£ depending of the work and the state of your original speedo.
With the radars we have, it's better to be at the right speed now
