Re: Fuel injection on the V12 engine

The Achilles heel of MS is in the quality of the connectors and a couple of the components on the main board are badly laid out were to need to repair a unit. While this may be true of the kit, I went with the MS3 Pro for that very reason. It is pre-assembled, has much improved connectors(water res...

Re: master cylinder assembly diagram

Have you seen the "S III ROM & Parts Manual Errata" doc that Rich Mozetta(on Jag-Lovers) put together. It explains a lot and I believe the brake Master cylinder is the first thing listed.

Re: Borg Warner model 12 gear 2 vibration

Band adjustment is relatively simple. Just read up on it in the manual. I believe this is the most likely cause of your vibration.

Re: Help! Torsion Bar Quandry

Final Update! As I mentioned in a previous post, where the jackstands are placed DOES have an effect on the clearance issue that was the initial problem. Simply relieving the 1 spline preload on the torsion bars installed at 17.5 inches left the ride height too low. Looking at Ole's drawing and doin...

Re: Help! Torsion Bar Quandry

Update! After getting the car off the jack stands and on to the street I have found that even with about 10 miles of driving with the adjustment cams at their lowest setting, the front height is about an inch too high. I'm thinking that the jacking points I used at the time may have had something to...

Re: Help! Torsion Bar Quandry

Update! Just for the record, I had to close up the setting tool dimension to 17.5 inches before I was able to insert the torsion bars on both sides. Once they were in and indexed, I set the preload to 1 spline using the JD43 tool as directed in the procedure. Trial and error here so I'll know if thi...

Re: Help! Torsion Bar Quandry

Does anyone know what dimension setting tool should be used for uprated torsion bars? Surely, I can’t be the first to fit these.

Help! Torsion Bar Quandry

Has anyone else run into this? I am refitting my uprated torsion bars since they have taken on a set that leaves the front end a bit too low. They were installed new when the car underwent restoration some years ago. I'm not sure how they did it, but I am trying to follow the manual. I have the shoc...

Re: Rear Anti Sway Bar for SIII?

Thanks for the info everyone! After a bit more digging I see that SNG also offers a sway bar kit for the SIII and it consists of both the front and rear. There doesn't seem to be any offering of just the rear bar. I have already installed an uprated front bar many years ago and it has helped conside...

Rear Anti Sway Bar for SIII?

I see that XKs Unlimited is offering a high performance sway bar kit for the series III that includes both front and rear. Apparently they have for some time now, but it wasn't until recently that I knew about it. No one else seems to sell anything like it that I know of. Anyone familiar with what s...

Re: Changing a clutch a 9 to 5 job !

OK! :bigrin:

Good to know AP most likely has bogus data in their catalog as far as Jags are concerned. I'll be proceeding along shopping for a Chevy 10.5" with some serious clamping force.

Thanks again,
Steve

Re: Changing a clutch a 9 to 5 job !

Hi Steve, not an upgrade, just new. In the Series 3, the EXEDY clutch kit # 04021 does the trick. 10.5 inch, 10 tooth. Cheap, available from most suppliers. Its all you will need, and stay with old style heavy flywheel. Don't want to be reving the engine more then you have to in order to get moving...
