Re: Norman Dewis: The Greatest Test Driver in History

What a great video, best wishes to Norman, I’m sure if you can get him in a car at 100 years he will deliver 100 mph.

Thank you for posting

Re: Insurance

I’ve had a good experience with Hagerty, agreed value on a laid up policy, easy to deal with and I felt good value.
I have no connection with them other than a policy holder.

Re: E Type equals what other classic

:wavegreatbritain: I’ve always liked the idea of an S3 Rolls to go with my S3 E type. There is is a strong link back to my favourite childhood TV program Thunderbirds with Lady Penolopy and the every cool Parker driving the Rolls.

Re: Centre Arm Rest storage box for series 3 V12

Bob and Yves, Thank you for your contribution. It most helpful to understand that a 2+2 armrest should work for me. Yves my thought was to make an armrest to ordgional size and spec as indeed you have done and may I say yours looks superb. I can now see a clear way forward. Many thanks for everyone’...

Centre Arm Rest storage box for series 3 V12

Hello

My complete centre armrest and storage box is missing!

Are series 2 and series 3 armrests boxes interchangeable? Ie if I fit a series 2 armrest to a series 3 car will it be correct in size and appearance?

Appreciate your assistance

Kind regards

Nick

Hello Simon, I’ve just recently swooped my nonfunctional oil sender for a new SNG one. It seems on the earlier V12 the sender is very inaccessible, later it was moved to the top of the engine. My method Raise car, remove front wheel, remove the splash guard in front of the vacuum bottle. Not easy bu...

Hello, Pleased to report some progress with my V12 1972 LHD import. The body needs some work to make it sound and I will be removing the engine as a part of the process.

Re: V12 Compression Test

Hi John,

Thanks for your comments and guidance, I’m waiting on my mechanical gauge arriving and then will need to get the car running prior to any oil pressure assessment so may be a short delay prior to reporting findings.

Many thanks for you contribution

V12 Compression Test

Hello, I’m starting to make progress with my series 3 v12 e type. I need to remove the engine to carry out some rust repairs and thought before doing so it would be sensible to check out the condition of the engine. I’m hoping it does not need a rebuild, we will see. I want to avoid if possible remo...
