Hi Rory, It's like the hotel. If you take a room in 4 stars you have all the chance to receive smiles and good service. If you take it in a 2 stars you receive ... a key! But of course, and in all case, you could find an exception. for all the time I spend on my E I prefer the higher quality parts e...

Hello all,
I have difficulties to find these 3 parts at the same supplier.
I easily found the 5/16 olive and the 9/16 nut 24 UNF - 5/16 but not the female fitting for the nylon hose.
Can you help me ?
Thanks
Mich

Re: Electrics, wiper motor

Hi John, Sure at their time they had smaller hands than ours ! Complicate - and not only for securing - contributed of the charme of the old jaguar, no ? With an E Type you have to do the mechanics with your head before your hands. For the clip, it's quite simple to climb when you have those "ears"....

Re: Electrics, wiper motor

Hello John,

Good job.
Just a think, the hose you disconnect is a air hose for the reservac tank and the brake assistance.
For your clip, didn't you loose their two "ears" ?

Re: Seeking advice re engine parts

Hi Pete, No problem with the timing chain from SNG. I didn't like the new hydraulic tensiner so I made a mix between old and new. I kept the box and only change the piston. It's working fine. For the clutch, take the same size as your old of course and ask a trade mark item Ask them to sale you the ...

Zinc Plated

I have a question about the color of the zinc plated. I just collect from a professional my zinc plated parts and I'm not very pleased. I ask him to do them in zinc white but on all the wishbones, fulcrum shaft etc... there is some yellow shadows. It's not "gold" as the screws of the new cars but it...

Re: Rebuiding SU Carbs

Hi Alan,

Did you check there is absolutly nothing into the hole ?
Did you try to screw it without the seal, the washer and the spring ?
It's odd to hurt a thread at the end of it, normaly you make a mistake at the start.
