Re: Buying MWS wheels

If your in the market for tyres as well Blockley seem to be able to do extremely good deals on mws wheel packages, worth giving them a call.

Re: Drivers side footwell vent - trimmed?

Yes I’ve done all that many times but can’t see a photo of a series 1 rhd 4.2 footwell, plenty of series 2 thanks to Chris Vines excellent Reston blog hence the question.

Re: S1 & 420G similarity

Hmmmm interesting, I guess they could be from an Aston ££££££££ or a Rover, I keep trying to buy random HD8’s on eBay for spares but they seem to command a premium, I’m short of one of these spring anti skid washers, doesn’t seem to make any difference but would be nice to get the last piece of the ...

Re: S1 & 420G similarity

Dud info on the carbs I’m afraid. From recent memory the main body castings are not the same, due to drillings for the fast idle levers and the opposite side adjuster screws being transposed, same as they are on most (all?) other Jag SU HD8 carbs drilled for manual choke but fitted with the AED dev...

Re: Brakes upgrade

Vented alloy Coopercraft on the front of mine and Coopercraft uprated cylinders on the rear. Nicely made and easy to fit. Only bought the fronts as they were new secondhand and cheaper than buying new solid disk Coopercraft calipers which I have on another car and are more than enough for the road. ...

Drivers side footwell vent - trimmed?

I’m putting the last bits of trim in the car (s1 4.2 ots) and am a bit stuck with the two pieces sent by BAS for the drivers footwell. The larger piece is obvious but the thinner piece that runs adjacent to the transmission tunnel covers over the heater flap area, it’s also bound around the full edg...

Under dash mill board panels

Does anyone have any photos of the fit and contour of the under dash mill board panels please, I have the three piece kit from BAS and would like to know if they are supposed to be shaped to follow the contours of the dash panels. Also are there any attachments to the dash front panels or do they ju...

Re: Rear hub carrier - colour?

Get them vapour blasted, probably only £10-15 and provided you wash them once in a while they stay good.

Re: S1 & 420G similarity

Don’t write off the 420g carbs completely, the HD8 main body / butterfly assemblies are the same as e type, the dashpot & piston assembly (which must be kept as a pair as they are machined together) can be made to e type spec by milling the top of the dashpot down and re tapping the thread for the d...

Inner wheel arch rubber strips

I’m fitting the useless rubber strips to the inner wheel arches of my car and having bought a ‘kit’ of the metal retaining strips I’m not sure if my 1966 car should have the two rubber strips attached to the near side inner wings of the bonnet adjacent to the heater duct. I’ve found photos of cars w...

Re: Is my bonnet missing a bit??

Thanks for all the replies, unfortunately I can't see the images :cry: Well it looks like the better spare grille I had restored is for a series 3 so I've put my less than perfect original on by the two bottom fixings which is fine for now, the original bonnet definitely had the two rear studs engag...

Is my bonnet missing a bit??

I’m trying to fit the power bulge grille to my restored (second hand) bonnet and can’t remember how it was retained originally, I can see the two holes for the bottom bolt fixings of the grille but there is nothing for the two metal studs on the back of the grille to push through and be retained by ...

Re: Advice on rustproofing treatment please?

Another vote for Dynax here, always used to use waxoyl but was never particularly impressed. The Dynax doesn’t suffer the issues of having to be heated to apply properly like waxoyl does and it flows and creeps very well. I bought two spray cans and have done the entire car with it. It takes a day o...
