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...

Re: Drive belt part numbers

Hi Ash
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...

Re: Can anybody identify this manifold??

Thanks for your replies boys. I think you're right Mark.

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...

Re: Where to mount rotisserie on rear of S3

Hi Davie I'm assuming the rear end of an S3 is not a lot different to an S2? If this is the case then these pics of the rear rotisserie mounting on my S2 might help?

Re: Hi everyone I’m the new owner of an e type

Hi Steve Although you are starting from a very low cost base, you will most certainly have to throw vast sums of money at this project if you choose to undertake it. And the final cost will vary depending on what if any of the restoration you can do yourself? Before you set off down this very bumpy ...

Re: What attaches here?

Hi Ash
When I trial fitted the heat shield, I found that the hole in the middle of the shield - arrowed in the pic - lines up perfectly with the lug. So I guess it's a forth attachment point for the shield?
Best of luck with your engine.

Re: What attaches here?

Hi Ash
I'm sure you're aware that if the shield is original, the insulating material will be asbestos. If you think to pass on what attaches to the lug, great. Maybe someone else will chip in at some stage?

Re: Upper Steering Column Bearings

Hi Steve
I've just found a source for the wavy washer thats part of the lower bearing arrangement. Mine was broken as I think is quite common. Let me know if you need to source one and I'll pass on the details.

Re: What attaches here?

Hi Ash Yes this is the underside. This is the rear part of the gearbox tunnel. The 5 holes on the LHS of the picture are where the rear engine [gearbox support] mount bolts to the car. I think I've got it right in this picture. The heat shield in question has a bracket [with a captive nut] sticking ...

I think that the front horizontal exhaust heat shield [C25101] attaches to the tab arrowed in this photo. Is that correct?
Thanks in advance.

Horn wiring & lighting relay mod questions

The picture shows 2 relays attached to the LH mudguard. The top one is alternator and the bottom horn. Firstly, I'm pretty certain thats how they were fitted in the factory? The horns were bolted to the bottom of the picture frame with all of the associated wiring contained in the engine bay, again ...

Thanks everyone for taking the trouble to reply. Fortunately, we're not too far down the road to alter anything.

Hi John Thanks for taking the trouble to reply. One thing that I've realised today is that the seal that runs up the rear of the window frame is the same section as the seal that runs up the Q/L hinge pillar.

What sort of gap?

I spent some time last week fitting and adjusting my doors, and trial fitting the window frames. I'm going to have another go in the next couple of days with some weight in the doors to simulate the missing components. I'm also going to trial fit the quarter lights to see what sort of gap there is b...

Thanks for that Steve. Also, the door hinge post in my car [pictured] was covered in carpet, but I don't think this was correct? I think it should be vinyl? And the rear wheel arches in my car had some padding on them with [more leather!!] covering applied on top. Should there be some sort of trimme...
