Blower motor spindle

I've just been doing some clean up work on the blower motor and replaced the brushes. Does anyone have any tips on getting the spindle back in the guide at the top? There is a 3 pronged guide to get spindle into. https://i.postimg.cc/yxTzR1P1/IMG-1576.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/NfgtcXs5/IMG-1577.jpg

Re: Steering Rack refurbishment

It depends. Does it have any play in it? Otherwise just a cosmetic refurb should be fine.

Re: Tyres

Very happy with my Vredstein winter tyres. They've performed for me the last 3 winters. They are 205s though. No 185s were available except for small van/light commercial specifications which wouldn't be a good ride. In the UK if you fit winter tyres you must tell your insurance company because they...

Re: Flushing out coolant system

Quite a strong solution of kitchen / dishwasher descaler, run it up to temp, let it sit for a week before flushing with a high pressure hose. This may have a limited effect on passages that are completely blocked. The descaler can only nibble at the ends of the blockage, rather than softening it alo...

Re: Horn wiring & lighting relay mod questions

I was just talking about this very thing today. After 7 months in place under the sugar scoops, my high beam relay failed and I was about to add this to the upgrade thread. From this experience I certainly advocate the added benefit from being in a waterproof enclosure under the sugar scoops or inde...

Re: Dishonest, Incompetent, Feckless ? You choose.

I feel your pain and frustration Rory. If you don't get any further with the remediation it may be time to get some professional advice on how to proceed.

Re: Soft top weights

It can be fitted to an existing one. Aldridge in Wolverhampton can do this although they don't tend to fit them when they do new hood trimming unless it is specifically requested - basically because some people don't like the stitching that can be seen. David's suggestion of glueing the "S2 patch" i...

Re: Refurbishing door handles/locks

You can change which key the barrels take by swapping around the parts in the barrel. If you want to get really original, you can ask Jaguar Classic parts (not Heritage), which key numbers your car originally came with. Here is an email I received from them. -----------------------------------------...

Re: Boot release will not open?

If I understand correctly, it sounds like the catch is releasing as the boot is coming up an inch. It could be that some of your luggage has moved during the drive and are preventing the hinges from moving fully. The normal boot opening issues have a couple of possibilities as follows but it sounds ...

I find it doesn't work so bad above the passenger footwell. The rear bulkhead in an OTS is a no no due to the wind turbulence.

Re: Difference btw US and European spec’s

You will definitely need to change the distributor if you change the carbs and want it running correctly. The water return pipe to the water pump is also different. It is a T piece on the US cars to cater for the secondary inlet manifold cooling circuit. And of course the inlet manifolds are differe...
