Re: How many made

Nice period features - Wolfrace? wheels and bullet door mirror. At least you are not burdened with the complexity of all the vacuum operated emission equipment fitted to US and later non US cars. Good luck with the recommissioning, plenty of knowledge here and on Jag-Lovers if you need help. Keep us...

Re: How many made

Of the 1790 RHD OTS produced 496 were autos, but for the number of manuals out of the 209 made in 1971, contact Faye McLeod, the Archivist at the Jaguar Heritage Trust Archive, British Motor Museum, Gaydon. All the e-type build records have been transcribed onto a computer database, so this sort of ...

Thank you for your detailed response, perhaps an appeal on jag-lovers might produce the information you need.

Hallo Roger Sadly I cannot help you with your specific question but does this mean your are putting together another of your excellent articles for the e type club magazine?

Re: Anybody seen this before??

Could be part of thrust washers item 29. Wherever it has come from the unit needs stripping, the rest of it is probably still in there and there is a reason why it failed.

Hi Des The Texas Certificate of Title (equivalent of our V5) should have come with the car when repatriated. If you don't have it and you imported the car yourself it may still be with the your shippers, otherwise try the person you bought it from or failing that contact the Texas Department of Tran...

Re: Rear bonnet grille

Hi Carsten You have a PM. I got a S3 mounting bracket from SNGB and tried to fit it. There are two holes in the bracket to allow self tappers to go through from the holes in the bonnet where the feet of the S1 grille fit and two holes for the fixing pins on the back of the grille to go through. The ...

Re: Rear bonnet grille

Hi Carsten The grille without feet is for an S3 (BD35935). The unthreaded studs pass through a detachable mounting plate (BD35934) and are held to it by spire nuts. The mounting plate is fixed to the bonnet via 2 self tapping screws and IIRC the distance between these is not the same as that for the...

Re: LHD RHD and windscreen wiper park position

Hi Colin, Ask for the Car Number (VIN) which will tell you if it was originally RHD or LHD (assuming the fraudsters haven't been there). 2+2 FHC LHD 1S70001 - 1S75183 RHD 1S50001 - 1S52116 OTS LHD 1S20001 - 1S26120 RHD 1S1001 - 1S2872 If the car is a manual but the Car No. has suffix BW, it was orig...

Re: Series 2 Automatic gearbox leak

They did say it was an engine out job, do you know if this is true? It looks as if the selector shaft has a flange outboard of the seal which would mean the shaft has to come out to change the seal. Whether this is possible via a combination of access through the removable plate on the left side of...

Re: Series 2 Automatic gearbox leak

There is seal on the manual selector shaft which might be leaking, transmission fluid may then spread and make it look like a pan gasket leak.

Re: Manually setting the timing?

You may have found the damper "1A" timing mark by now but in case not this is what you are looking for. I think the 1 is hidden under the paint I put on a while ago but the A is clear enough.

Re: Etype Series 2 Power steering rack

The XKEbooks S2 Parts Manual lists all the parts with part numbers for the power steering rack, pump, pulley etc. It has an exploded diagram of the power steering rack but the diagram for the pump kit has been left blank unfortunately. (http://xkebooks.com/)

Re: JD40 Sprocket Retaining Tool

Hi Nigel, No personal experience of doing this job - YET - but was the timing chain tensioner slackened off before unbolting the sprocket? If not could it have extended, effectively "shortening" the chain once the sprocket was no longer constrained by the camshaft. Bob https://s17.postimg.org/crnroz...
