Re: Quick Release Steering Wheel

An interesting discussion of which I've read only the last 2/3 pages. I have a friend nearby who is a long time (50+ years) member of VCC/VSCC and personal restorer of 8+ classics. He expresses to me an opinion about how I should leave my car in the garage (which is integral but can apply to others)...

Re: SNG Barratt Hillclimb

Just to add my heartfelt thanks for an excellent day, To Julian, Sarah and all the guys from SNGB helping today. Despite the miserable wet start to the day there was a fantastic ride up the hill in the F-type, propelled by Julian, boy it had some go and grip. Then 2 runs up the hill in my E, I manag...

Re: fuel & temp gauge reading to high.

Do you have the part number for this improved version voltage stabiliser as SNGB parts catalogue for both S1 and S2 cars say part no: 148876J is no longer available and offers no alternative.

Re: Spinners self tightening??

Thanks for all your responses. I'm going back to the restorer's today to get this fixed before going to Spa. Yes, there was quite a bit of dry grease on the cone which I cleaned off with WD40. The hub cone is just the same. After I first saw David's comparison of the repro spinners against originals...

Spinners self tightening??

mmmmm, I'm not so sure just now. I bought a BMW 3 series jack to use on travels because it is smaller, fits in the spare wheel well and is easy to use. So I had to try it out before going to the Spa Classic races next weekend. It lifted the car easily and I just happened to lean on the rear wheel an...

Re: Drive belt part numbers

Not sure if this will help or not, as when mine was being rebuilt we had difficulty finding the right length belt for the alternator (or more likely the water pump - A.D. don't you know :roll: ), and I have a non-standard alternator. However belts were: Water pump: 13A0790C Alternator: 10A0813C 10 a...

Re: Insurance

I agree with Steve3.8 RH was the best value I could find and with return of salvage in case of total loss. Agreed value based on photographs and valuation from the restorer. Took a few days only and cost an extra fiver ½ way through the year. Excellent service with no cost to advise I'm taking the c...

Re: Firing Order

Do you remember that on the Jaguar, the cylinders are numbered 1 to 6 from the rear of the engine.

No. 1 cylinder is close to bulkhead, N0. 6 close to the radiator.
