Re: 63 Coupe project, Where to begin?

There is a chap in U.K. compiling a register of 3.8 rhd FHC, his name is Gary Oxley and he is on Facebook, I am sure he would love to hear from you. He has stats for about 43% of the cars made.

I have this servo, bought as a kit from Rob Beere. His kit includes 2 brackets for mounting to the engine frame. I am building a LowDrag replica and have not installed the servo, nor does the braking system have the original KH servo, running it unaided as per original. If anyone is interested in a ...

Re: Help with Door Panel Identification

I suspect they won’t fit anything. They are meant to fit S2 swb doors, possibly also late S1.5 but are poorly made, which is why your chromes don’t fit.

Re: Which engine sump?

I can’t comment on any of the above, however, I have used on several occasions sumps intended for the military J60 engine. These are smooth sided with the drain plug fitted at the bottom. They fit both the 3.8 and 4.2. They tend to be under £600 and can be found on e bay, Rob Beere or Chesmans.

Re: Oil Pump

With regards to oil in the camshafts on start up, the design of the head is such that there is sufficient oil held in the cam area to bathe the followers and cam lobes so they have oil on start up.

Re: hand brake adjustment...

Instead of a split pin, consider using a sprung R clip, which aids removal the next time.
