Re: Switch surround

I used Humbrol enamel on mine.

It was easy with it out of the car and all switches removed.

Re: 4.2 flywheel ring gear damage

How do you replace the ringear......machine it off or use heat to remove.....and to replace use heat again? Steve Hacksaw as far as you can through it, then split it with a sharp chisel and a bigammer. Simples! That's how I used to remove/replace the ring gear on my Cooper S's. But the impression I...

Re: New Forum Features

Re: New Forum Features

Thanks David.

However, I am using a Laptop running Win7 Pro and the same happens whether I use IE11 or Firefox, all of which are fully updated.

:scratchheadyellow:

Edit: I thought it might be caused by my Kaspersky anti-virus but turning this off and re-booting made no difference.

Re: Drive shaft UJ shields

Sorry chaps, they do perform a function. On the few E-Types that are driven on days other than when the sky is blue and the roads are dry the boot protects the UJ from road dirt thrown up by the tyres. The UJs are strategically positioned just where shit from the inner wheel arch dribbles down. Tha...

Drive shaft UJ shields

Does anyone have an opinion on the efficacy of the metal shields for the drive shaft outer UJ's ?

I'm told they don't do much and are more a nuisance.

I don't have any fitted.

Re: Steering shaft bent

You can see that the rubber moves with the moving plate of the flexible mount, so the mount is OK.

Definitely need a straight shaft. It may be that the universal joint also is stiff.

Re: Mystery misfire

Thanks for the kind words. Hugo, I pointed out that when the vacuum connection had been blanked off and the engine re-tested, it was still misfiring because the valve clearances on cylinder 3 had closed up, most likely because the new seats had settled further into the head. Although this got correc...

Re: Mystery misfire SOLVED

Solved at last :smile: Just to re-cap, the car came, known to have a misfire and the head was removed to check it out and odd valves were found, some slightly bent. So new valves were purchased and the head sent to the engine shop for refurbishment which included some new valve seats. When it was re...

Re: Thermic paint stripping

I don't think it will be that much of a problem. The company I work at part time just received a coupe body back last week. I think most lead resided about the top of the body by the front screen ends. The lead seems to stay on the car though not where it was originally put :roll: I didn't look roun...

Re: Mystery misfire

It remains a mystery :oops: The exhaust is clear. It still misfired with the exhaust removed. It's been on a old Crypton Tuner which has proved the ignition is OK. I don't know about any vacuum connection at the rear of the manifold. The manifold has been changed without effect so maybe a leak in th...

Agree, it sounds most likely either sunk float or sticking needle valve, but this reminds me of a problem we had with my carbs. I rebuilt my carbs with new parts from Burlen.

Re: Advice for a UK car registration

John, Sorry, I should have read your post more carefully. Your car is not a Jaguar so the JEC will be no help. However, I do not see why you have this problem, unless this car was originally registered in the UK and it is desired to recover the original registration. DVLA will not allow this unless ...

Re: Advice for a UK car registration

PM sent. In my PM I suggested contacting Michael Worthington-Williams or the E-type Club. Rather than the E-type club (which may be able to help - I don't know) certain clubs are authorised by the DVLA to process applications for registrations. In that case, the Jaguar Owners Club (JEC) may be more ...
