Re: Jaguar Sport V5C

You are correct Steve regarding the name of the car thats at least what was possible to register in uk in the old days. But this is not intended for uk so I thought a question wouldn’t harm

Re: What causes plugs like THIS??

Could it be some kind of additive in the fuel that has been mixed in totally wrong proportion? Or oil/water from the crankcase breather pipe?

Re: Knob for heated rear glass switch

If it’s of any help I have made a few for my C type project in brass because they are the same. I can make another one but you have to sort out the chrome yourself.

chrome beading

Hello everybody!

Does anyone know if it´s possible to find the chrome beading pipe that runs along the "Crash Roll" roof cantrail on a FHC? It´s a round tube with a slit exactly the same type as on the bonnet to wing beading but slightly smaller in diameter.
Part nr BD.24414
