Re: another voltage question

I had a similar problem recently. Traced to bad earth connections. Where the gauges are concerned, there is an earth connected to the copper plate of the centre dashboard. Test this for connectivity through to chassis earth on it's own, and all other earth connections in the area.

Re: Jaguar E Type Series 2 - Pressure sender failures.

you can even re-use the wire for the electrical oil pressure sender as an override for the fans. it reaches from the switch to the relay perfectly.

Re: OTS Boot Floorboards

Supporting rail is part BD19055 on the S2. available at SNG, perhaps other suppliers of choice also. It all looks the same as the S1. Cross referencing the part numbers in the catalogue should help.

Re: Jag E Type Series 2. 1970

I did have a look at a couple of cars there and got independent assessments done on them. Apparently the guys at BHCC are a bit chaotic in that they are kept extremely busy the whole time and the assessor was left standing a while even though he had booked an appointment and the inspection ramps.

Re: Share a top tip

also left over filter pieces from vacuum cleaners or cooker hood filters can be cut and put in place. Very effective. They don't noticeably restrict airflow, I'm sure there will be a little but I haven't measured with a gauge.

Re: Mud flaps for Series 3?

I ended up putting a clear self healing protection film on those areas underside. Most dirt will now rinse off, although that doesn't prevent the splatters being there in the first place, but does give the protection against stone chips etc.

Re: Distributor problem

I had a similar issue. Cleaning out and an overhaul of the distributor fixed all. The weights were gunked up. The Distributor Doctor is the place to get a thorough professional overhaul. If it's not producing any spark at all, check the cabling to the coil. The csi ignition unit may also have moved ...

Re: wiring

The diagram in the S2 Service manual is correct (assuming you have original parts).

This may help you.

Re: Royal Jaguar?

JLR Classic have commented that they are looking how to bring the change of the original motor to the electric version to market. This is a fully reversible mod according to JLR Classic. Good on JLR for looking how to future proof classics (should one want to), and looking at the future while mainta...

Fuel Pump/Pickup Gasket

Hi What is the collective wisdom regarding the material for the fuel pump/pickup gasket on top of the fuel tank. C.22226 SNG have this as a cork gasket. Is this correct or is it better to use a rubber one? I've also got a limited choice of gasket sealant in the area. Basically PETEC. Choice of 3. Wh...

Re: 4.2 flywheel ring gear damage

If the holes need to be enlarged slightly on the bell housing for the bolts, then this is not quite a fully reversible mod that has been alluded to in years of other posts, or is this just peculiar to the Fosseway starter motor replacement. It would be good to capture some of these things / variance...

Re: Boot drain fitting

Hi Ah, I was thinking of the OTS. On the FHC there is the drain tube at the bottom of the back door aperture than you rightly show. It is part BD.19635/1 which is a piece of pipe 6 1/4" long. There is a drain tube also coming from the petrol filler box, BD.659/9 - 18 5/8" long BD.19032 is the Drain ...

Re: Is this from my car?

Yes. Fully concur with Christopher. It looks like the crank case breather pipe (C.28247 or C.28710 for US & Canada). It indeed does have 2 short rubber hoses (C.25263) & at either end as Christopher correctly remembers.

Re: Bump Stops in rear arches

My bump stops were removed, presumably, when the fat 205/70 tyres were fitted. I've searched for the parts shown in that other thread "Ohlins bump rubbers #00563-03" but to no avail. Does anyone know of where they (or an equivalent) can be found? For the S2 it is part No. C.25938 available at SNG. ...
