Re: Continuous Fan

Hi Bernie,

not normal. PO has either bridged the otter switch (or OS is bad) or the AC radiator fan relay is continously on which again bridges the otter switch, makes the radiator fan relay which then runs the fans.

Re: Front brake caliper thoughts

I have a pair of S2 calipers hat I have just cleaned ready for a rebuild. They didn’t need new pistons so the rebuild costs just the seals. And a cat of paint (I’m too cheap to get them plated). However, I did split the calipers to clean them and that has left me with a dilemma. None of the seals k...

I've just measured a couple of washers that I think are correct bonnet spacers at 2.5mm.

The SNGB ones were a bit thinner and this made installing the bonnet trim strips difficult.
Thanks!

Re: Where to buy a "Bonnet Hardware Kit"

The one I bought recently from SNG Barratt had the wrong thickness spacer washers. Otherwise all the bolts are 1.4" UNC. Andrew, what was the thickness of the wrong spacer washers? I ask because I'm just installing a kit from SNGB and have no idea, what the correct thickness would be? Thanks, Manfr...

For plastic gears I would use silicon grease.

Re: carburetter screw sizes

Thank you all for your replies!

I've spent the better part of today tearing down the first of the four carburetors and identifying the screws myself. Actually, they are all unified thread with a mix of UNC and UNF.

carburetter screw sizes

Dear all, can someone explain to what kind of screws are used on the Zenith Stromberg CD175 on my '72 e type? I'm asking about (as an example) the screws holding the dashpod and the float bowl. Are those US screws (e.g. #0, #1, etc) of Britisch screws (e.g. BA0, BA1, ...). Please forgive this probab...

Neither of them. What you show in your picture are screw-in bulbs with an E10 socket.

Unfortunately, the parts manual doesn't list a part number for the gear. I will try Jenkins first.

Re: Source for distributor gear?

Thank you for the pointer to the distributor doctor. Unfortunately, they replied that they don't have the distributor gear avalable. I am a bit astonished that such a "common" item is unobtainable. Since it is made from bronze, it is made to fail before any damage is done to the driving gear in the ...

Re: A weird electrical issue

Steve,

the one thing the tach and the heater fan switch have in common is that they source +12V from the same fuse F7. I would check that the green wire from the tach is indeed directly connected to F7.

Hi, I'm currently compiling a list of all switches and relays in my S3 which also includes a diagram of the internal function of each part. Unfortunately, the circuit diagram I have doesn't show their internals. I have found internal diagrams for all relays and all but three of the switches. I'm mis...

Arjen,

great idea! When tilted on it's side, can you drag it along the floor? I have no idea how heavy the body is! The space in my garage is limited so when tilted sideways, I would need to drag it into the middle of the avalable space.

Thanks, Manfred

Replacing floorpans on an S3

Hi, both floorpans of my '72 S3 are rusted through at the front. Further, the car has been jacked up using the floorpans such that they are dented in the back. This means I will have to replace both sides of the floor, and replacing the full length may be the best solution. I have replaced the floor...

Since my latest restoration - a 1980 Porsche 911 - was finished, I was busy looking for a new project to work on in my spare time. Two weeks ago I spotted an interesting E type which perfectly fit my search pattern. I was looki...
