Re: Car jacking

+1 for David's recommendation. I carry a S2 version (no ears on my spinners) along with a large, extendable socket bar, permanently fitted with the pre-requisite 38mm socket.

Works a treat and no risk to metalwork.

Re: Cooling Fan Relay location

Thanks for that Tom. Very interesting. I will have to reposition mine.

I am missing the fan motor plastic covers too.

It never ends!!

Re: Cooling Fan Relay location

Glad it's been helpful Andy - project looking great.

This photo should help (bit of non-original chrome on mine).

Cover for car

Off to collect my car at the weekend and looking forward to getting some miles on the new engine over the next few months. I have decided to treat it to a new dust cover (for internal use in the workshop only). Research has shown me there are a plethora of choices and costs so thought I would see if...

Re: Brake servo heat shield

I agree with others Malcolm I don’t think you have the correct part there. I have SS down pipes and can still fit a shield on the inner side of the frame. Hopefully we can have a look and compare notes at Wroxhall on Sunday. Mine gets an MOT tomorrow and a pickup from the engine builder on Saturday....

Re: Rubber trim glue?

Jamie I use this in the workshop and always very pleased with it. Good quality adhesive and the bottle design makes it easy to apply. It does not clog up either. It will have been an Amazon or EBay purchase. Regards Ash https://i.postimg.cc/6qXSsxh8/5-B33-BAC0-5721-4570-88-AF-10-B2-BE407-A1-D.jpg

Re: Rubber trim glue?

Hi Jamie Another vote for superglue - get good quality industrial stuff. It is definitely one of those products that you get what you pay for and, as others have said, just on the very edge of the bumpers. One other tip that may be useful. When I was refitting the rear bumper unit I was unhappy with...

Re: Oh no! Engine frame damage, could it be repaired?

Hi Nick Sorry about your news on the frames but as others have said it’s not a repair job. That said, you live in the right part of the world for a lot of old specialist skills that will be lost in the next decade or two. I found a small crack in my engine block that was stitch-welded in Willenhall....

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...

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 ...
