Re: Series 2 or Series 3 door pull handles?!

Hi Tim, S1 2+2 doors had a pointy armrest as did the S Type shown in the BAS catalogue. (My copy doesn't show any E Type with them fitted.) S2 2+2 had no armrests until around the middle of August 1969 when the moulded type were introduced and then carried on into S3 production. This is a S1 2+2 arm...

Re: Series 2 or Series 3 door pull handles?!

Hi Tim,
Part numbers for S3 and S2 armrests and 2+2 door skins are the same.
Pictures are from my S3. Fixing centres are 5.5ins.

Re: P-clips on Series 1 3.8 for a LHS car - help needed

Hi Tadek
Re the last image of the tacho drive cable P clip to inlet manifold stud. I have checked images of seven apparently unrestored 3.8s covering 1961 to 1964 and none have the clip. Six 4.2s in similar condition from 1964 to 1966 all do have the clip.

Re: Series 3 E-type V12 Air Conditioning Evaporator

Dick, I would be interested to know it but I don't have the car number. You could try contacting forum member Hilton (Holeshot) who had the car in 2018 although he hasn't posted here for a couple of years now. If that fails there are some clues to the likely build date suggesting it is not a particu...

Re: Series 3 E-type V12 Air Conditioning Evaporator

Yes I have seen that one before, for sale a couple of years ago in Australia I recall and suggesting a working system judging by the other images showing the hose layout entering the cabin on the left rather than the right side. But the fan is still in the LHD position in the RH footwell and the fas...

Re: Series 3 E-type V12 Air Conditioning Evaporator

Hi Dick, Whilst the compressor was made by Frigidaire in the US, based on this label still half attached to a unit from a 1971 S3, the evaporator was made by Delaney Galley Limited in the UK. https://i.postimg.cc/zB1cpc7s/AC-Delaney-Gallay-Evaporator.jpg The company has an interesting and varied his...

Re: Fuel pipe routing

Hi Tadek, I certainly don't have a database, that would imply an organised system! I had a look at the clips visible on images showing the brake pipe running along the chassis rail. No "P" clips are visible, only the four C5023 clips. The Parts Manual lists 2off C18461, described as Edge Clips but a...

Re: What Causes Petrol to Leak from the Exhaust

Hi George
Vacuum issues will only lead to weak mixtures, not rich. Have you checked that none of the carb float needles are sticking open. Remove air cleaners, turn ignition on to run fuel pump and look into each carb. (Don't start engine). Is fuel visibly squirting up from a main jet ?

Re: Meaning of numbers on Smith clock

Hi Robert I think the numbers you have left on the face of the clock are the remains of the original Smiths Reference Number. For a 1966 negative earth car it would have looked like this originally. https://i.postimg.cc/cC4xRD19/Clock-S1-3a.jpg Whereas earlier positive earth cars had this Reference ...

Re: Fuel smel in the trunk

Hi Steve Found I had bought some more 2240 for another job so I have some 5.5, 7.3 and 9.3mm bore. Not silicone flexible by any means but quite easy to achieve the minimum bend radii quoted in Cohline's spec sheet above. Less effort required than the equivalent size but thicker walled R6 and R7 fuel...

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...
