Re: Dashboard Gauge rubber seals

Thinking again I used Danbury Hydraulics. They have an eBay site. Purchased a complete set of both inner and outer seals.

Re: DVLA Problems registering my US e type

Hi, I need to register my US import. I have the original title and the forms from the DVLA but was under the impression that I would need at least an initial MOT ( even though it’s exempt by age) . Are you saying that yours didn’t need this MOT in order to get the age related number?

Thanks

Re: Speedo cable issue

Before you drive any holes are you certain that the drive is on the left hand side?
I was confused for a moment as I’m certain that mine is on the RHS. On checking the SNGB website they also show it on the right.

( of course I may be wrong)

Re: S1,5 OTS Door Trim

I have a series 1.5 OTS built in mY 1968. I’m fairly certain it’s never been apart . It does not have armrests.

Re: Armrest on cubby box moving sideways

Hi, if you haven’t yet purchased the piece that secures the armrest from moving then one is for sale on eBay just now.
Item number 202302981966

It’s in the US but looks a genuine part.

Re: Spare ignition keys

I bought some spares from an eBay seller “andyvanchimney”.

First set were great, new and unused. Second set not so great but useful.

Plenty of sellers on eBay but most of these just cut from new blanks which I didn’t want

Re: Stoneleigh 2018

I must admit I came away slightly disappointed. Picked up my preordered dash panels from Hutsons but that was all. I noticed that some of the regulars were not pricing goods which always makes me wary. I intended to pick up much more but it just didn’t happen. I guess internet buying has reached our...

Re: Body plugs - advice required please.

I reckon that these plugs fit in the holes in the rear panel usually covered by the number plate.
Fitted from outside .

At least I have (had) 4 holes in mine and found 4 plugs like yours and that’s where they ended up !

Re: "...remove bolts securing propeller shaft..."

I’m sure others will comment but it looks to me that your bolts are in the wrong way round. I thought that the bolts should be fitted so that the nuts came on from the rear (axle ) end with the bolts fitted through the gearbox flange.

Re: "...remove bolts securing propeller shaft..."

By pinion fitting I mean the flange on the end of the gearbox.
The comment by Marek about splitting the prop sounds a good thought

Re: "...remove bolts securing propeller shaft..."

If it’s of any use I’ve just refitted my prop and had similar issues at the gearbox end. The locking nuts had been reused and were showing signs of being rounded and were very tight. Aware of any potential issues I didn’t want to risk destroying the nuts completely so spent a while selecting the clo...

Thanks for that, do you still need the horseshoe shaped brackets that secure the calipers to the diff ?or do the calipers bolt directly to the output shaft cases?

Hi, I’m in the middle of the same job. If you speak to Hutsons they will send you a priced up schedule of parts required.

Series 2 rear çalipers on a series 1

Some time ago I noticed a posting on here about fitting series 2 rear calipers to a series 1. I think this required some grinding mods to the caliper bodies. I now can’t find that post despite a good search. So if the original poster ( or indeed anyone) has this detail I would be interested. Thanks ...
