Re: choke cable replacement advice needed

Morning All.

Dash removal panned for the weekend to replace both choke cable and heater cables.

Extra question? How easy is it just to remove the front part and leave the strip next to the screen, or does it all come out together, hoping not to disturb the air vent ducts etc..

thx in advance

XJS to e-type S3 v12 dipstick conversion

Evening All

Success today, XJS dipstick converted into S3 v12, thx to the info from Bob and Marek

Removed 8mm from the top of the dipstick sleeve, so all measurements on the protruding dipstick match a standard s3 v12 into the block. As per measurements supplied.

Job done. :-)

Re: front brake discs replacement

Hi All

Have decided to replace bearings as well, as the cost is not too great and using the books Santa has delivered looks an easier job then first thought.
