Re: Factory cadmium plated parts

Robert, Of the items you have coloured green, we would not plate the upright or steering arm (paint black) but the others can be plated. I would certainly not plate the stub axle or hub as you will never get the bearings on/in. We do plate the upper and lower wishbones and their pivot shafts. Boltin...

Re: Factory cadmium plated parts

Hello Robert, I'm no expert in this area but work with an E-type restorer nearby. First, I cannot enlarge your pictures because you have saved them using postimage.org. That does not work. You need to use postimage.cc (see here: http://forum.etypeuk.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=10280 ) Second, I think no...

Re: Robbed by a supplier ?

Yes, I agree with Stu. Clamping the cover before welding is no use. What is require is even pre-heating of the whole part before welding. It would need to be put into an oven and heated to at least 200°C before welding, then there would be a chance of it remaining straight. In my younger days I boug...

Frightening experience

I had a rather frightening experience last evening, out in my S2 FHC. I overtook a large smoking Merc MPV, gunning it in third, went to change up once past and the rev counter went full scale as I dipped the clutch. :shock: I didn't get it into top, cutting the engine immediately and coasted for a q...

Re: Fuel Tank sender unit

... the volume of vapour inside is minimal and probably has little oxygen there. Actually the explosive range for gasoline vapour in air is quite limited and in general the vapour saturation level in a petrol tank will be well above the UEL (Upper Explosive Limit) which is only ~7.1% vapour by volu...

Re: Help me with my rev counter conversion/rebuild.

If you get the tacho converted and use the 123 distributor, you will likely need to install a 6800 ohm resistor in the wire from the coil to the distributor. This solved my tacho sticking: See post 14: http://forum.etypeuk.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=11024&p=102047#p102047 EDIT. Actually, the resistor d...

Re: Core plug removal method

I think the reason the small plug was not removed is because it is on the oil gallery, not water, so is not subject to corrosion. Therefore safe to leave in place if it did not leak before ....... before what? I might ask myself :roll:
