Re: Dash trim detail help please

Thanks Simon Can’t see the images for some reason? I have some spare hockey stick trim after BAS sent me double my order so that should be the right stuff. Fortunately the dash panels came up nicely with a bit of elbow grease, I did get my trimmer to recover the dash top tho which I’m very pleased w...

Dash trim detail help please

I’m putting the last bits of trim and door rubbers on the car at the moment, I have the trimmed ‘triangles’ and a post hockey sticks ready to go on but I can’t remember if there should be a bit of black vinyl stuck to the ‘wings’ that the dash panels bolt to at each side, at present painted metal ma...

Re: oil filter housings?

Be very careful if you are playing with 3.8 blocks, for example putting the oil filter assembly off a mk2 on to a block used in a mk9 will result in zero oil pressure, in some applications Jaguar used a steel plate sandwiched between the block and oil filter housing to block off relevant oil passage...

Re: Series one Independent rear suspension (IRS) overhaul?

It’s not too difficult to do the diff output seals and pinion seal so I would do those on yr new diff, also use the later pinion seal. Don’t be tempted to replace your rear coil springs with modern repro ones from the usual suppliers as they are rubbish and will give the wrong ride height. Rear spli...

Re: Interior grab handle to A Pillar fixings??

Hi Robbie

Thanks very much for that, much appreciated, it feels like a bodge but if it was good enough for Jaguar it’s good enough for me - and I spent plenty of years hanging on to the one in my dads car as a kid so it’s obviously strong enough!

Interior grab handle to A Pillar fixings??

Does the grab handle chrome fixing attach to the A-pillar via self tapping screws or is the pillar threaded?

Thanks

Re: Front Screen Side Trim Fixing

Just to echo the post above re the quality of fit of the repro trims, I’ve just fitted a set of SNG roadster screen chromes and they are very poor, I will be hunting out an original set to re chrome in the future, if your originals fit nicely I would find a decent chrome restorer and get them done r...

Re: Water pump

‘New’ pumps are available but the parts aren’t interchangeable with the original units as far as I know, if you have access the a press then fitting a rebuild kit to your original unit isn’t very difficult.

Re: Inside engine block. Glyptal or not?

My engine had been left in a wet chicken shed for 30 years with the Head and sump off so had even managed to rust inside where oil had once been. I had it acid dipped and machined and then used Glyptal (spray can from frosts) on the inside and timing end as once cast iron starts to rust even when cl...

Re: Radio console

Here are some photos of mine (4.2) but I’m guessing yours is a 3.8 looking atbthe soeaker panels? You can get a new front plate from Martin Robey for £18 which nicely covers where the aperture has been made bigger for a radio. https://s15.postimg.cc/4rzu51lkr/3_D64_B72_B-962_C-48_B8-_AC0_E-417_C886_...

Can anyone help with a few photos of an original 4.2 ots interior please, specifically where the screws that hold the fibre trim panels adjacent to the interior light on the rear bulkhead go and also how the trim panels which cover the B-pillers are fixed, particularly at the bottom.

Thanks both, bulletin says they were introduced in 1964 so the repro must just be poor. Time to get the grinder out.

Re: When we’re half shaft UJ dust shields introduced?

In answer to my own question it looks like the later uprights had more clearance to allow space for the dust covers,does anyone have a car with these early uprights AND dust covers? https://s31.postimg.cc/jdy6gz1mj/07_E4_EF41-81_FE-4511-_A06_A-_D00048_F04_B77.jpg https://s31.postimg.cc/b8g4it5nv/CDA...

When we’re half shaft UJ dust shields introduced?

I’m getting to the end of the mechanical stuff on my 1966 4.2 but am struggling fitting the outboard UJ dust covers. I bought an original second hand one which clears the rear hub upright (just) but the repro one from sng for the other side has no chance of clearing. The car is up on my ramp so the ...

It’s intereating you mention adjustment as I’m the making along the same lines.

Re: Brake bleeding problems - silicone fluid

The pedal consistently travels half way before resistance is felt, an additional half pump of the pedal immediatel...
