Re: tappet clearance

Hello Philip, for Aluminium cylinder heads this is different. I just ask because for my actual VW van from 1989 the workshop manual show 2 different values for valve clearance. One is for a "warm" engine, one for cold. Fortunately it's too cold in my garage at the moment so I will not proceed at the...

Re: tappet clearance

By the way, does anyone have experience with the ambient temperature the Jaguar workshop manual refers to for tappet clearance adjustment?? Sven By the way, there is no temperature mentioned for measuring (e.g. 20°C) Normally the manufacturer mentiones a temperature. At the moment there are -2°C in ...

Re: Series 3 carb removal

Hi, I think you have no chance to get a socket on the nut. Also a ring spanner is not possible. I used a normal spanner, it has not been too difficult to remove the carbs. I acessed the nut from below. Of course it took some time because I could always only turn some degrees :wrench: And then turn t...

tappet clearance

Dear colleagues, just a short sunday morning workshop question to those with more experience than I have. Checking the tappet clearance of my E I found that I have between 0.007 and 0.012 in clearance. On the A bank 5 valves have 0.012in which is minimum as I read. Because so many are out of toleran...

Re: fuel pump

Dear colleagues, time to close this post. Today I have disassembled the pump and found: 1) 1 pump chamber half filled with dirt from the tank because the pre owner drove without strainer 2) points on one side out of order because the axis for the point has been installed in a wrong way 3) one way va...

Re: fuel pump

Hi,
I think it has been "repaired" by the pre owner. Might be that this is one reason why he couldn't get the car running again.
I will install a new electronic SU pump from Burlen.

If I find time I'll disassemble the old one and take a look at the one way valve.

Dear colleagues, again I'm confused about my E. :seeingstars: Today I have tested the fuel pump of my E V12. The body has two markings: Top and Out (in this picture on the top of the die cast body, below the sheet metal dome). pump (002).png I thought that out means that "out" is the outlet port tha...

Re: Clips for balancing pipe

Dear forum colleagues,

seems to be that no supplier can provide the parts I'm looking for.

Basically no problem, I just wanted to have the original ones.
Perhaps I can find parts during a spares day.
Or I have to make a trip to Beaulieu autojumble (If my wife agrees :bigrin: )

Best regards

Re: Clips for balancing pipe

Dear Craig, did you see my photo of the original part? The parts you mention, available from nearly all suppliers like SNG or Limora are not the ones in my car (and in the parts catalogue). They might be correct for a US car with more pipes for the emission control system but they are not correct fo...

Clips for balancing pipe

Dear forum colleagues, I'm searching for "original" clips for the balancing pipe of my 1971 S3. The original part in my car is completely different from the ones I can get from Limora or SNG (white one in the pic). Seems to be that the actual parts are for US spec and not for european cars like mine...

Re: Greensand Color

Why not keeping it?
The E SIII is a child of the 70‘s and in that age colours which seem to be strange today were normal.
I would be happy to have such a rare color.

Re: trim color

Thank you for your replies!

I think it will be best to order some larger samples (bisquit looks good) and then try to find the one that
looks best (including the opinion of my wife!)

trim color

Hello forum members I'm wondering which trim color my 1971 E has had when it left the factory. The heritage certificate indicates "beige". At the moment the car is trimmed in black but I have found some original sections under the seats trimmed in beige vinyl. I have got samples of beige vinyl from ...

Re: Fan Motors

The original connectors were moulded rubber male/ female Lucas bullet type two way connector. Kevin is right, the brush kit doesn't include the rubber connector whichI'm looking for. Too bad Autosparks doesn't sell them, they inlude them in their looms bot don't provide cables for the fan motors. O...

Fan Motors

Hello Forum Colleagues, the pre owner of my car has ruined the cooling fan connectors of my S3. Now I'm looking for replacement parts but I can't find a supplier who sells just the short fan motor cables including connectors or the connector sleeves (rubber) alone (I have asked Autosparks already) c...

Re: Cable/Hose

Might be my E doesn't have it because it is a german car which doesn't have the Emission Control System used in the US.
