Re: Preferred supplier of interior trimming kits?

Hi Barry.....Bas, Aldridge, Skinners etc......plus others all supply good quality products....however its down to who does the trimming...the above will do a great job...but if your doing it yourself its possible to get a great end result....but if does take a lot of time and effort.Steve

Re: pre-programmed curves on 123 ignition - help please?

The problam with comparing the 123 curves with the "correct" curve in the service manual is that the correct "curve" is from a distributor test bed 50 odd years ago.......a slightly worn engine and different fuels available today will probably requirer a different curve than the "correct" one..........

Re: pre-programmed curves on 123 ignition - help please?

Hi Mark.....if your thinking of a 123 then the "Tune" version is obviously the best....you can program in any curve you want......by going with the standard type you are taking pot luck.......Steve

Re: E SI with XJ6 SIII oil filter housing-filter bypass?

Hi Layne....yes i can see the photo......however i do not know if it would actually be unsuitable......it dosnt look as robust as the 2995A.....but dont forget the standard filter for an E type is a paper element with no other valves...Steve

Re: OIL CAPCACITY OF 1971 S2, 4.2, 2+2

Hi Mike....too much oil could cause a problem the crankshaft can slap in to the oil and foam it up so lots of air in it then the oil pump cant pump the oily foam..or oil seals can start to leak more...is your dipstick the correct length...is your engine block from an xj6 they had a longer tube that ...
