Re: Fuel pipe routing

Glad to help.
BTW The later type fuel pipe looks like cad plated steel rather than copper.

Re: Fuel pipe routing

Hi Tadek As a S3 owner I hesitate to enter the dangerous world of S1 originality but as no one else has responded here goes. I have a few images showing the ARB v fuel pipe routing area. Discarding those where replacement piping is evident, this leaves twelve images with what look like original pipe...

Re: Stromberg jet height

Jet outer land 2.5±0.3mm below the bridge face (orifice is 0.5mm lower). Data was verbal from Burlen Fuel Systems Ltd in Jan 2017 after they had consulted their drawings. It worked for me with factory settings of 16.5±0.5mm for float levels and 1.5psi fuel pressure. (sorry for mixing units) See also...

Re: Adjusting Stromberg idle mixture 4.2, 2 + 2...

So in that case the only option to get mixture adjustment through the range on the version fitted to S2 is to get Joe Curto to modify them to take the old style adjustable jet/ fixed needle set up. ISTR Joe is in New York.

Hi Mike, Plenty of reading in the links Steve has given you. As suggested, the screw you are pointing at is the "summer" or "winter" selector for the choke, so nothing to do with normal running. If the carbs are original, there is a limited amount of mixture adjustment available by removing the air ...

Re: Location of rear water drain tube from bootlid opening.

Hi Thor,
I have circled it. I think on the OTS it is joined with the fuel filler box drain via a "Y" piece just inside the floor but completely hidden by the fuel tank .

Re: Stromberg Temperature Valves

Hi Nigel The temperature compensator is an emission control device intended to compensate for variations in fuel air ratio caused by heat transfer from the engine to the carb body, eg when car is stationary. It is intended to be fully closed up until 45°C (approx) and fully open by 60°C. If you want...

Re: Correct length of IRS lower control arm for S1

Hi Philip The picture from the ROM shows dimensions for a S3 lower link. Rear track of S3 is 53.75", track of S1 is 50". AFAIK track increase of S3 was done by simply fitting longer bottom links and driveshaft from 420G. Leave you to do the sum to get dimension B for S1. https://i.postimg.cc/xCXV91C...

Re: Fuel return valve series 3 V12

When I first had my S3 and was trying to solve rich running problems, amongst other issues I found the return pipe blocked inside the fuel tank. It was adjacent to silver soldering between the take off and return pipes, done presumably to stiffen the assembly. Probably caused years ago by internal c...

Re: Fuel return valve series 3 V12

Hi Simon, My view is that the system you have now is normal for an S3. The "before" scenario is typical of a non recirculating system as fitted to the S1/S2 cars but the system in S3 is designed to recirculate fuel continuously to keep it cool enough to avoid vapour locks as underbonnet temperatures...

Re: Setting the carburettor jet distance below the bridge

Hi Nigel I imagine a small arbour press would be the ideal tool for the job and heating the bodies to about 200°C would reduce the interference fit, but I did it at room temperature and by drifting. If starting from scratch press/drive the jet in from the float chamber side. With the carb inverted a...

Re: Series 3 Drivers Footrest Location

Neat metalworking Ross. One point, the PM shows it attached with three screws rather than via the four holes you have incorporated. The use of three might define where Jaguar intended it to fit when you look at the metalwork behind the trim.

Re: Setting the carburettor jet distance below the bridge

When I rebuilt my carburettors (a few years ago) I went to great lengths to set my new carb jets 1.5mm (60 thou) below the bridge. The problem is that I have no more adjustment to try and get things a little more richer. Hi Doddsy - (sorry don't know your name) I would question setting the jets to ...

Re: Series 3 Drivers Footrest Location

Hi Ross, I have only seen footrests fitted to LHD cars - is yours still LHD? Those I have pictures of vary in shape (some flat, others curved) and position so I suspect some were fabricated locally then fitted to suit the owner's preference within the constraints of the metalwork behind the trim.
