Re: £300K Series 3 anyone ?

We clearly all have a different view on what an Etype is! Personally I love the handling and drive of an early 3.8 and To me the point of having/driving an old car is to enjoy the experience of an old car. The Eagle “kit cars” and other etypes redesigned to drive “like a modern car” are absolutely f...

Brake pedal box rebuild

Hi all I’m putting my Kelsey-Hayes pedal box back together All’s fine except I’m not sure where to “set” the brake pedal on the splines on the shaft Is there a rule of thumb or is there a particular angle I can set it at in relation to the pedal box itself for example (I took it apart some time ago!...

Original front sidelight lens

Hi
I need a couple of the ones I believe Marek was producing.
Is he still doing them
I’ve sent him a PM although I’m never quite sure if they get there😊. It says it’s “sent” so I guess that’s ok?

Re: Stalling on over run with the clutch in.

For the first 1000 miles or so my rebuilt engine did this at times. I’m wondering if the engine just needs to bed in a little ? Mines fine now
