Re: Impact noise on each bump

I wanted this to be the solution so badly... But I did the job right. https://i.postimg.cc/sX0wPpMs/20200908-152647.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/5NvW0tr6/20200908-152713.jpg What I did notice, though: 1 - The engine/gearbox assembly is not in line with the gearbox mount. No more than 5 mm but still. We ...

Thanks Steve,
I set the engine stabiliser yes but I'm going to repair what I did wrong, so I'll be obliged to unscrew it and I'l recheck it after.

Re: Diamond Jubilee E-Type's

I think I understand that the price could be (there is no official price for the moment) £600,000 for the OTS + FHC pair. If people can buy these cars, it's perfect for them, right? Like the vast majority, I can't, but that's not a problem at all. Jaguar employees have work to do, the image of the E...

Re: Clutch/ engine / ? Problem

Keith What I can advise you to do is to go to an EType racing specialist because that's what your transformation looks like. Someone who knows the gearbox/clutch/racing engine chain well and above all knows the parts and the settings that are specific and vital for this kind of transformation. A rac...

Re: [edited] Spin on oil filter vs retrofitting OEM filter housing on Series 1

Hi, Missing. I'll forget the washers you have. You must used the thicker seal. With a knife, "cut" or " break" the interior angle of the seal, oil it, and it will fit more easialy into the grove. You'll must to push hard anyway. Don't tighten the canister just like that, you must centerlised it prop...

Re: Clutch/ engine / ? Problem

Hi Keith If in neutral the small idle is about 700 rpm steady, I will look at the clutch release bearing. It looks like with the gear engaged, the clutch depressed, you still have a drive that stalls the engine. The rattle could come from the bearing also. When the clutch isn't depress and with the ...

Re: Building an Engine Test Bed

Hi Rory For the two engine supports I did them removable and adjustable for the width of the engine. Also I did the head seperate with an axle so that I would necessarily have the right angle when I put the engine on its supports. The tube was 40x40, 30x30 is a bit thin. I also buit an arch to use t...

Re: Engine hoist load leveller

Hi
Nothing is impossible but it's certaily not easy to do by the side.
I did it several time by the front with a similar engine hoist 350kg at the last hole. I changed the sliding bar for a longuer one. Even if I decrease the possible weight, there is no problem, with a leveller it do the job.
