Engine Compartment Decals

Does anyone have any reference material regarding engine compartment decals for a late S2 FHC? SNGB supply a comprehensive collection of decals but I am not sure which ones I need and where they are located. Had a good look around the forum but cannot find any help. I note a couple of others have as...

Re: Brake servo heat shield

I have the Fosseway version fitted. Not cheap but, as with everything from them, a fine piece of precision engineering.

Re: engine running rough series 2 convertible

Correct Angus - plug has white in/out plus green. White connected across loom half of plug will remove the Tach. from Alan's circuit.

Re: Refitting IRS question

Looking great Andy.

Regarding the scissor jack, completely agree - a very useful addition to the workshop too for me this year. Used it to put the engine back in and probably the easiest I have ever done it.

Will be on the road soon...

Re: Refitting IRS question

That is a great idea James. Definitely one for the notes diary. Andy, my apologies if my post misinformed. I am not advocating that you need a team of weight-lifters to refit the IRS but it’s a big lump and even when well balanced on a jack some ‘firm hands’ on either side are useful at the moments ...

Re: Refitting IRS question

Hi Andy Would strongly recommend the Fosseway remote bleeding kit. Fitted one to mine before putting the IRS back in and it makes rear bleeding such an easy job. My only tips for fitting would be to get yourself a set of pointed pry bars which help align the holes. I also used old bolts to tap throu...

Re: Heater Box Flap

I presume it’s all brazed on the S1?

The S2 dismantles.

Weird...

But I spray painted mine as already discussed, powder coating is too thick for reassembly.

Re: Clutch master cylinder push rod length

That’s a great call Steve!

Grant, do you have the spacer that sits between pedal box and clutch master cylinder.

Zoom in on my photo and you will see it.

Re: Height to bonnet hinge point

Thanks both.

I just wanted to get some idea of what height my frame needs to be sitting at if I am going to get the bonnet on.

That gives me a ballpark which is all I need.

Appreciate the feedback.

Height to bonnet hinge point

Could someone do me a favour and measure the distance from the floor to the point on the front frame where the bonnet hinge is attached. My front suspension is all re-fitted but not setup accurately. I was hoping to get it back as-is to the engine builder to setup all of the front end geometry profe...

Re: Clutch master cylinder push rod length

Hi Grant I think it would be a pretty difficult job to replace that spring without the pedal box on the bench. Without any connection to master cylinders these internal springs will return the pedals back to their resting position. If you need any other photos let me know - I have collated a lot ove...

Re: Clutch master cylinder push rod length

Hi Grant Mine is much closer to the length of the old one. The spring looks like the one that sits within the pedal box to aid with pedal return. Here are a couple of pictures that may help. Sorry they are such a mess - they are the ‘before’ pictures. Cheers Ash https://i.postimg.cc/7L4jxMVm/74-AAB4...

Having restored all braking components over the winter (plus new callipers) I have a completely 'dry' front end to bleed. Hence my research on here to pick up as many tips as possible before I start.

Re: RIP Norman Dewis

Very sad news. He will not achieve his dream of 100 at 100.

Modern times use the term ‘legend’ far too often. But in this instance we have truly lost a legend.

A quick wiring question if I may. As background I have fitted new engine looms (AutoSparks). Obviously these come into the car and connect to various points behind the dash. All fine with the new connectivity but I have discovered a spurious original wire that I am not sure whether it has always bee...

Just a follow up note - belts arrived and both fitted a treat. Plus a spare of each in the boot.

Thanks for advice.
