Re: steam

Ok, I purchased the Harbor Freight pressure tester. It's not the most elegant and well made tool, but after wrestling with the universal adapter for a few minutes, I was able to get the cold system up to 15 psi. There were two leaks, and I think I got lucky. First, the big right side hose was leakin...

Re: steam

If it helps, I have smelled coolant in the past when driving and I have had some steam coming from the same place. It's pretty dry right now so I am pretty sure I didn't go through any puddles.

steam

Hi - I own a 1967 E-type FHC with a stock 4.2 litre engine. I took it out for a drive this afternoon, and when I parked it upon my return, there was a bit of steam coming through the louvers on the right side of the hood /bonnet. I turned off the engine and it went away pretty quickly. I started up ...

Re: Hardura Panels

Aha! There is that extra piece of insulation between the hardura and the metal. Thanks for posting this!

Re: Hardura Panels

Thanks for the info!
So, what you are showing me mounts directly below the dash? No extra layer of insulation in between?

Re: Hardura Panels

Simon - the hardura I bought has a thin layer of insulation built into it (I believe they all come this way). What I removed from my car was the hardura + an extra layer of jute insulation, which was sandwiched between the hardura and the bulkhead. Is this correct, or do I not need that extra layer ...

Re: Hardura Panels

Thanks for the replies! The previous owner used a really thick glue to hold the panel in place. It appears to be a glue that never fully dries, and I will be cleaning up a pretty decent mess prior to installing the new panel. One other question (for now) - The hardura I removed had jute between it a...

Re: Hardura Panels

Alan - I believe you are referring to the plastic piece that slips under the dash lip. I am talking about the soft vinyl piece with padding/insulation on the back which spans from the top of the footwell carpet to that shorter plastic piece. The previous owner used some kind of thick glue to hold it...

Hardura Panels

Hi - I will be installing a new hardura panel on the passenger side of my series 1 '67 E-type coupe, under the dash.
Is there a "best" way to do this? I have read about people using glue, magnets, or even velcro. This is a new job for me, so I am a sponge awaiting advice.
Thanks,

Stephen

interior footwell upholstery

Hi - I have a '67 series one FHC. There is a vertical piece of upholstery in the passenger compartment right below the dash, roughly 14" x 14" with sound insulation on the firewall side. It has come loose, and I am unfamiliar how to re-attach it. Any advice?
