Re: S3 Radiator recommendation and Alternator charging.

Hello Adrian,

I think checking the diodes like you already mentioned is the right way to start.

Re: water pump

Hello Nigel, hello Simon, I have decided to send it to SNG and they can judge if it can be reused. Both engine and pump side show wear due to cavitation problems or corrosion. Thank you for your advice. I will continue the restoration (of course) because my wife bought the E for me to avoid that I s...

water pump

Dear forum colleagues, each part I remove from my car seems to be damaged. I'm already thinking if it is reasonable to continue the renovation. Today I just wanted to remove the water pump to send it in for refurbishment. But I found heavy damages due to cavitation. :helpsos: The pump body and the e...

Re: Why are my cooling fans on strike?

Hi Martin,
Which fuse did you check?
Also the one in the engine bay?
Do the horns work(they use the same fuse like the fans)

My E burned the fuse because of a faulty horn and then the fans stopped.

Exhaust manifold

Dear forum colleagues, I have just found a cracked exhaust manifold on my car. I have already read an older post by Marek to replace pairs with those from new production. One question. Can I replace them wirh the engine in the car or do I have to take the engine out? Best regards Sven https://i.post...

Re: Serious miss

Hello Bernie,
very easy. there is a drain plug(screw) in the sump of your tank. Just look under your car, left side rear end under the tank. There you can completely drain your tank.
Best regards

Might be interesting for some of you.

Re: tappet clearance

Dear Marek, everything worked exactly like you described. Only thing I found a little bit difficult was to get the bearing cap nuts back on because it's necessary to compress some valve springs. It should be easier if someone helps. But finally I got everything back in. Of course I use a torque wren...

Re: Silencers

Hi Bernie,
I just checked my set.
The front pipes have an outside diameter of 51mm and fit into the silencer without any effort.

I think you can use the silencers only with the Bell pipes.

Re: Silencers

Hi,

I would ask SNG if those parts can only be used in combination with the stainless steel pipes.
I have a complete Bell system from SNG in my garage but still wrapped.
If you need support I could measure the parts for you.

Re: tappet clearance

Today it was warm enough to start working on the tappet clearance. I found it very easy to take the camshaft out. For the tappets I used a strong magnet. Fortunately there is no wear visible. Thanks again for your comments. Beeing new to Jaguar the forum is really helpful for me. :thankyouyellow: ht...

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...

Dear colleagues, time to close this post.
