Re: Heater box

Hi Jem, I'll work on the lever. When the flap is closed, the lever seems to be too hight for a good return mouvement. Your spring seems to be above the axle instead of below Unscrew and turn anti clock wise the lever for some mm and see if it's better. After you could change the routing if you want....

Re: Covering for instruments panel

Hi The best for doing this is the " Vinide Leather Cloth" From Martrim . Very thin, 1/32" ( 0.8mm) it's a very good product. The vinyl from BAR or other has a too thick knitted backing it creat a wave around the dash when you mount them which isn't pretty. Prefer neoprene in spray to glue it on the ...

Re: IRS - Shock Absorbers - Plan B ?

Sorry but I'm not agree to change the balance of a car, E Type or other. Mix the dampers change the way the car is going to react. Not really when you drive quitly on our small French roads that you like so much but for sure when you'll need to brake hard under a thunderstorm. That's why I don't adv...

Re: IRS - Shock Absorbers - Plan B ?

Hi Glenn I'm not agree with Marek this time. The dampers front/rear are normaly built to work together on a specific car. If you are in race it's different, you could want a specificity on your rear or on your front with different dampers but for a n " everyone car" there is not any interest. Apart ...

Re: Sheered cam cover stud

You may be able to buy one of these glass shelves thick enough to regain the flatness of the cam cover.
The glass is obligatorily flat.
GR400 / 600 or 800 grit sandpaper with oil on the glass and gently rub the cam cover over the sheets.
Thats what I did and I reduced the leaks dramatically.

Re: Torsion bar ears spline wear?

As usual, a "clonk" can come from a lot of places.
This car is a box of resonance !
Proceed by elimination to find the proper solution.

Re: Torsion bar ears spline wear?

Hi Chris, Difficult to think of wear on the splines of the torsion bar ear, it doesn't move so no friction. I also had a "clonk" in front when I arrive into a bend and for me the solution had been to change the bushs of the anti-roll bar. Simple to find if it's this. dismount a link between anti-rol...

Re: Scuttle top casing cover

Hi
For those who would have any interest, I ordered " Vinide Leather Cloth" From Martrim to do the job.
Very thin, 1/32" ( 0.8mm) it's a very good product.
Prefer neoprene in spray to glue it on the aluminium you'll avoid some acumulations of glue.

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.
