Re: MOT tests.

That is a really good point Andy.

Lots of touring planned next year for E Type 60th and the MOT for tours is a good reminder.

Re: MOT tests.

Hi Chris I agree - I have my S2 tested each year. Keen to get that independent view of the car. Whilst keeping it well maintained and serviced it gives peace of mind that all okay. It is also a formal log of mileage of the car too. Nice feedback for mine at its recent MOT. The tester could not belie...

Re: LHD to RHD conversion query

Phil Run a length of electrical wire into the bulkhead and then through the pipe and then back out through the bulkhead exit hole. This then helps to pull the pipe into position. I was working alone so tied the ends of the wire together behind me so I could move back to tension the wire with both ha...

Re: Lamp alternative

A quick follow up question.

Can you fit these LED bulbs in the main external lights too; without any other alterations?

Re: Series 2 Headrest Removal -Help!

Nigel There is a spring clip retaining the headrest. It is on one side of the chromed tube and will need to be pushed into the tube to allow the headrest to be removed. With the seat out of the car undo the bottom of the leather seat back so you can slide your hand up inside the seat. I used a hacks...

Re: Am I ready to fit the engine in??

Hi Tadek I refitted my engine exactly as you are planning to. I used a scissor jack (motorcycle jack to be accurate) to position the engine just a small distance above the engine mount brackets. Plus a trolley jack for the gearbox. Axle stands under engine frames. Picture Frame and Bonnet frame a bi...

Re: Heater hose C18987, diameter fitting adapter C17421

Another thumbs up for the Fosseway silicon hose kit. Love all of their stuff and the hose kit is no exception.

I agree that a bit of trimming is required on the smaller bore hoses. I like that so you can get the precise tension on each hose.

But another strong recommendation from me.

Re: BEST ENGINE OIL!!

This is a very interesting topic and I respect there is an element of personal preference.

Just checking that my choice is okay?

Penrite Classic? I change my oil and filter every 2,000 miles.

Would value views.
