Re: Scuttle top casing cover

I ordered some thin vinyl from Hutsons.
We'll see if it's near the original.

Re: Scuttle top casing cover

Hi Simon,
So I ignore ...
The parts I refer are the pannels under dashboard but the Jaguar book call them "scuttle top casing assembly".
I need to cover them as near as the original for I think the original trim is now no longer available.

Re: Brake master cylinder won’t dismantle

Sure a drink ( or more ) work fine...
Perhaps gently with a inertia hammer fixed on the circlips ?
It's very annoying when we don't understand the WHY of the problem. :banghead:

Re: Brake master cylinder won’t dismantle

With the bulge of the body I thought it was the servo.
Sorry I did this but didn't remember any problem.
Do you try with pressure air ? Beware your eyes.

Re: Brake master cylinder won’t dismantle

Hi Ian,

Do you fit out the "stop pin" locate at the botton of the hole of the inlet connection ?
Look the knowledge base / serie 2 / brake

Re: Firing Order

Hi andrew
It's a pity I didn't read this before!
I know the solution now for an other time.
Hi Peter
You belive right :bigrin:
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...
