Re: Cooling Fan Relay location

Hi John
You're absolutely right. It fouls the RH fan motor. Over it goes.

Re: Cooling Fan Relay location

I went for a more muted colour tone, and for the upward pointing option. The fan motor connections are marked 1 & 2 but theres no guidance on the wiring diagram as to where the supply & earth wires go. I'm assuming if I have this wrong, the fans will run backwards?

Re: Cooling Fan Relay location

Ahh, sharing the inboard coil mounting bracket screw. That explains why the hole in the bracket is so large.
Thanks everyone.

Cooling Fan Relay location

Some time ago I discovered a mystery bracket in one of my boxes of bits, and have just discovered that it is to mount the cooling fan relay to the picture frame. But exactly where? Can someone post a pic please? Ta. Ash - You can probably see one of your wiring diagrams in this pic? Thanks again. It...

Re: Throttle linkage fouling

Hi Greg Hi Andrew When I took the picture everything was loose, so gravity had pulled the horizontal bracket down. I have now set it as high as it will go and used some round washers to shim it away from the bulkhead. I know the washers that you mean Greg and thanks for the heads up. I have a load o...

Re: Throttle linkage fouling

Hi Chris Hi David The inner fulcrum lever can only go on one way round. In the picture the linkage is partially disconnected and the lever has fallen into the position in the picture. Once properly connected, the lever will have rotated 180 degs clockwise. I have photos of how it was when I dismantl...

Throttle linkage fouling

I've just refitted my throttle linkage and I find that the horizontal bracket assembly slightly fouls the windscreen wiper motor and therefore will not sit properly against the bulkhead. It's not a lot. To cure it I will probably need to shim it by 5mm at each of the bracket. But I'm wondering if it...

Re: Refitting IRS question

Hi Anthony Thanks for the heads up on my hubs. I double checked them and they are fitted correctly. When I bought my C2 I found that all 4 hubs were incorrect. Lefts on the right and vice versa. All 4 hubs on the Corvette are the same as the front hubs on the E Type. Held on with 5 nuts. So no speci...

Re: Speedo Cable

HI Jeff
Yes, my car is RHD. I found lots of odd clips in one of my many boxes of bits, but not the right one. I'm assuming it's secured just to stop it clattering around and chaffing on something?
Looks like I'll be making something up.

Re: Refitting IRS question

Just a quick update on my IRS which went back in very easily. The motorcycle lift was a godsend. It's one drawback is that it is designed to move in the fore and aft plane with rollers rather than castors at one end, and this was going to be an issue. So from the picture you should be able to see th...

Re: Speedo Cable

Thanks everyone. I think I might have seen this clip in one of my many boxes of bits. My engine and gearbox are now fully installed, but I'm thinking that the bell housing [ sorry Jeff clutch housing ] bolt may be accessible from inside the car. My cable is grey so maybe an original item?

Re: Refitting IRS question

Thanks for all of your input men. I've picked up a 600 kg capacity motorcycle lift on Gumtree which I think should be useful as it has quite a big platform for the IRS to sit on. And it was quite useful when I fitted the gearbox as well. Ash - Yes I've already fitted the remote bleeding kit. And how...

Refitting IRS question

It's my understanding that refitting the IRS is easier with 2 of the mounts fitted to the IRS, and 2 mounts fitted to the car? So, has anyone found that one of the combos works better than the other. i.e. fronts on the car and rears on the IRS or vice versa? And has anyone tried bleeding as much air...

Re: Drive belt part numbers

Hi Ash These are the belts that I ended up with. I got the alt belt right first time, but had to try 3 different sizes of W/P belt before I got it right! I had to shim the alternator slightly forward to get it's pulley properly lined up with the W/P pulley. ATB Andy https://i.postimg.cc/qqr8DCzW/IMG...

I'll get back to you next week once both belts are fitted. I only have the alternator belt fitted at the moment.

Re: Drive belt part numbers

Hi Jerry On the web, I've managed to cross reference the Dayco part numbers that correspond to the Jaguar numbers as Alternator 10A0825C and W/P 13A0775C. So your numbers confirm those to be about right. Your W/P belt length of 790 is 15mm longer than standard, and someone else has an 800 length bel...

Drive belt part numbers

I've just looked at a major suppliers catalogue for some new drive belts, and they seem to me to be overly expensive. I'd like to fit them before the engine goes back into the car. Can anybody help with some generic part numbers or widths and exact lengths. I know you can measure them with a piece o...

Can anybody identify this manifold??

In amongst the bits that came with my car is this manifold which appears to be brand new. It's not for my car I know that, but can anybody identify it for me? It will fit the rear position on my head, so I'm guessing that it's for a 4.2 engine?? Thanks in advance Andy https://i.postimg.cc/P5T2p253/I...
