Re: V12 Engine Instruction Manual

Probably as a result of the then recent launch of the XJS, the 1976/77 52 page A5 TASS booklet is a reduced combination of two earlier papers. One presented by Walter Hassen - Director and Chief Engineer Power Units - to The Society of Automotive Engineers in January 1972 in Detroit and an earlier o...

Re: "Torpedo" armrests/door pulls????!!!

Hi Tim
Don't know if you are aware but S Type and 420 saloon part numbers are the same as for E Type S1 2+2 torpedo type (BD26078 BD26079). You could try a wanted add in the JEC classifieds as well as here.

Sadly not any more it seems - although the Moss UK website clearly shows a fully foam structure seal, what I received today was yet another example of the extended solid rubber lower sec...

Re: what went on these 4 protruding bolts in the boot back panel ?

They look rather like studs which would carry the mounting bracket for the boot latch on an OTS. Perhaps a repair panel meant for an OTS used sometime in the past? Others will know.

This is an S3

But you cannot pull them out without major surgery on the seat.

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: 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...
