Re: VSE engine problem

Got 10,000 miles on my ‘62 3.8 rebuilt by VSE Slight “rattle” on start up from cold initially but disappeared after a short while. Great engine which just seems to get better and better No significant oil leaks Very happy Butlins are doing my second one which I’m sure will be excellent but if VSE we...

Ok
So the ad is misleading if modern changes made to the car?

Re: Body tag

I’m reasonably sure the tag moved in late S1 cars from inside the left bulkhead by the back door to behind the rear number plate?

Concourse condition?

Hi all Just saw this add from Peter Bradfield Ltd in Octane magazine “Original RH, restores to concourse condition and up-rated with 5 speed gearbox”! My ‘62 coupe is restored and has a 5 speed gearbox which was my choice and makes cruising on tour very relaxed...indeed many of us have upgrades whic...

Re: Noise in the front at very low speeds on a pothole or speed bump

Do you have new or original spinners as the new ones often don’t secure the wheels as tight as they could ?
Just a thought

Re: Clip/bracket for breather pipe

Thanks
Good view of the bracket
I think the 3.8 may be fitted to an inlet manifold stud instead of the position on the 4.2

Re: Breather pipe Clip on lnlet Manifold Stud C19007

Hi Richard
That’s a nice view of the water pipe clip
I’m more interested in the clip that holds the breather pipe(the pipe is visible in your picture)
Can you get a shot of it if indeed you have one fitted??

Re: Clip/bracket for breather pipe

Thanks that’s helpful
Don’t suppose you or anyone out there has a photo of the bracket that I need ?
Maybe dimensions eg distance of hole to secure it from the crooked end
Where does it attach??

Clip/bracket for breather pipe

Hi all
Hope you’re all well

I’m looking for part C19007 which attaches the breather pipe to inlet Manifold stud. SNGB don’t do it

Are they available anywhere or would part C16963 (rearmost bracket holding water return pipe to block)be worth getting and”adapting” to suit?

Re: IRS shock bolts

Richard Thank you , you are absolutely correct. I’ve just checked my 1962 pre strip down photo and YES the plain washer is under the bolt head inside the frame as on my last photo and there is NO washer under the nyloc nut on the outside This should make my nyloc nut sit perfectly Thanks one and all...

Re: IRS shock bolts

Interestingly I’ve just looked and I seem to have erroneously placed a flat washer under the bolt head too...this might explain why my Nyloc Nut JUST fits flush and has only a hint of thread appearing. I guess I’ll just leave it? Anyway a 2inch shaft on the bolt seems correct https://i.postimg.cc/C1...

Re: IRS shock bolts

What model is your car My S1 3.8 has one flat washer per Bolt and it sits on the outside of the frame under the nylon nut I’ve just measured the bolt and it has 2 inches of “shaft” The nylon nut is normal size (not slim) and is just correct The jaguar spare parts book shows ONE washer per top fixing...
