Re: 123 and tachometer

Have you checked inside the distributor where the weights are? Is that all cleaned out and no muck or gunk. That did cause a very hard to trace misfire on mine a while back.

Re: What happened here ?

The heritage certificate was issue to Victory Classic Cars in the Netherlands. This is ER Classics. https://www.erclassics.com
They should have a paper trail of who they sold it to after Jan 17.

Re: Speedo Dial in kmh

SNG and SC both stock kmh versions, I suspect from the same supplier - probably Smiths.

Re: Speedo Dial in kmh

Please let us know how you get on. The polycarbonat dial face they picture does have the full beam light in the wrong place for an etype. I also suspect that their faces will be flat, whereas the original is a formed shape - dished into the middle. I expect this is to allow for the height of the jew...

Re: Speedo Dial in kmh

Replacement gauge faces are available from some of the usual suppliers. However, I haven't seen one with both mph and kmh on the same dial. It is either one or the other.

Re: Advice on removing S2 bumpers please

Doesn't it have to be the regulation at the time the car was first put on the road is the applicable one? and of course, each country will have its differences - hence the long list of variations when it comes to lights, bulbs and clusters.

Re: Advice on removing S2 bumpers please

Hi

The reversing lights on your current mod are already bright enough :) I'd be interested if it would be possible to use them as fog lights. e.g. white on reverse, red on a new fog light switch.

The 2 references I used for that complete info was Clausiger and xkebooks, and in turn referenced the Jaguar Service Bulletins. I will freely admit, a good, indexed library of the complete set of Service Bulletins would be a very useful resource. As far as I am aware, there isn't a complete set avai...

OK. On the Series 2 which you have there were 3 camshaft pairings. As you were reading 618 or 819 if it was upside down, you have the second pairing. C.14985 Inlet Camshaft; Engine Nos. 7R.1001 to 7R.8687, 7R.35001 to 7R.38854 C.13081 Exhaust Camshaft; Engine Nos. 7R.1001 to 7R.8687, 7R.35001 to 7R....
