Re: alternator

So today I got my 12t workshop press and have pressed out the rotor.

No I have to remove the rear bearing and the slip rings.
Did no one do this before and can give me a hint if it is a straightforward job? :helpsos:

Thank you for advice :thankyouyellow:

Re: Clips for balancing pipe

Hi,

no I didn‘t.
Perhaps I will ask a student of our University to print some.

alternator

Dear Forum colleagues, next job on my list to get the E running again is the refurbishment of my Butec alternator. I have started disassembly to change the bearings which have really reached end of their life. Now I'm wondering if the unsoldering of the outer slip rings is really a DIY job? I'm afra...

Re: Exhaust manifold

Today I received new manifolds from SNG. Now I‘m confused because the new ones have much bigger threats for the heatshield :seeingstars: screws. Is this correct? Seeing that there are different heatshield I‘m now afraid that my old parts will not fit (I can‘t try at the moment) and that I will not f...

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.
Here two pics of my new tool to remove the spinners.
No need to use the copper hammer anymore.

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...
