windscreen washer pump

Dear forum colleagues,

is it possible to source a new rubber gear for the washer pump?
Sounds perhaps ridiculous but I want to keep my old pump.
All aftermarket parts don‘t look like the original one.

Heater pipe bracket

Dear forum colleagues,

I found a loose bracket C35017 on a heater pipe at the rear of my V12.
The pipe goes from the heater to the engine block.
I have no Idea, where it has to be fixed.
Can someone give me advice or send me a picture? :helpsos:

Best regards

Fan temperature sensor

Dear forum colleagues, taking the cooling system apart I found that the housing for the Otter switch is completely corroded. But only from the outside :wow: I even have holes which go completely through the material. I don't know how this could happen. Now I want to install a coolcat temp sensor. Ca...

Re: Rad air control flaps

Dear forum colleagues,

I'm just restoring my original radiator and two of the flaps mentioned here are missing.
Are these rubber flaps really necessary?
I saw that the available new aluminum radiator parts also have no flaps.

Thank you for your advice

Re: Manifold heat shield springs

Hi,

it is quite easy, there is a bracket (C35944) "behind" the manifolds.
So you put the heatshields on, put the spring through the hole and hook it in the bracket.

Re: timing mark

Hello Marek,

thank you for your advice.
I have checked the position of the central bolts relative to the A1 mark.
It looks like in your picture.

I will check TDC position again.

timing mark

Dear forum colleagues, I have searched the forum and the WEB to find info about the crankshaft timing mark but I'm still confused. On my 1971 E the mark A is exactly at 12° after TDC if I turn the engine into TDC. I have checked the camshaft postition and I also checked if the piston is really at TD...

Re: Stromberg Temperature Valves

Hi, after reading a lot of posts in the forum (and discussion the item with a carb specialist in Germany) I have set mine to closed position using the fixing screw. Doing so it is easy to reactivate them without bending. Most of them were stuck in closed position anyway. You can find a lot of differ...

Re: Series 3 2+2 1972 - Ignition Issues

Hi,

from my point of view the orientation looks good. At least it is the same like my carbs have.
But the holes look quite big. :hammerdrill: ?

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:

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...
