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_...

Series 1 4.2 ots interior photos please

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. I’ve gone throu...

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

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 ...

Re: Brake bleeding problems - silicone fluid

It’s intereating you mention adjustment as I’m the making along the same lines. I bought my rear cylinders second hand but new, the previous owner having upgraded, when they arrived he left a note saying not to forget to adjust them or they would drag. You can’t adjust them! When I stripped them dow...

Re: Brake bleeding problems - silicone fluid

I’m trying to eliminate any other problem parts of the brake system so I made a by-pass pipe and connected the master cylinder directly to the rear brakes only (no servo) and bled them. The pedal consistently travels half way before resistance is felt, an additional half pump of the pedal immediatel...

Robey scoops on mine, fitted them a month ago without problems.

I doubt M&C make any scoops they supply.

Re: Where to buy hood frame timber parts?

Thanks for the replies, has anyone tried the cmc one made from resin? It’s a nice idea but I imagine not very suitable for fettling compared to a timber one?

Re: Brake bleeding problems - silicone fluid

Right, servo is back off the car and I’ve opened up the vacuum chamber, this time it’s dry inside so the next question is: Is it theoretically possible for the servo to still be the cause of the problem but the pressure loss is now with another seal causing it to effectively back feed the servo supp...

Re: Brake bleeding problems - silicone fluid

While I have known a new old stock master cylinder on an xk120 to fail to bleed properly on silicone fluid, requiring a new seal kit to make it work I put that down to the old stock seal having gone hard. I really don’t want to go to dot4, the reason for putting dads car on silicone 30 years ago was...

I’m struggling to get a constant firm pedal on my rebuilt brakes, as part of the cars restoration I’ve replaced the master, servo, all pipes, fittings, rear cylinders and fitted coopercraft 4 pots up front. I’ve bled the system countless times, achieve a firm pedal but then within a few seconds the ...

Re: Seat Belt solution for S1 4.2?

If it’s an OTS there should be threaded fixings on the parcel shelf behind the front seats(one per side), a captive nut in the floor behind the seat adjacent to the B pillar and another captive nut on the transmission / propshaft tunnel down the inward facing side of the seat.

I’m re assembling my hood frame after blasting and painting and need to get new timber pieces for the front pan, unfortunately my car arrived with the hood frame already stripped.

Re: Front Bumper and Badge-Bar, tweaking them to fit to bonnet.

I wouldn’t be too hard on the last guy that fitted the bumpers, they are a complete bastard to line up nicely and it’s best to grind them to fit the shape of the car before chrome playing them. There should be an aluminium wedge between the bumper and fixing point nearest the gob and a round alumini...

Tab visible in this photo, I’m sure you could make something if yours are missing although it’s questionable whether they really do much.

Re: Struggling with headlight assemblies, what’s wrong?

It looks like the inner bowl may be series 1 e type specific which makes sense, the e type has the bowls upside down compared to other cars so the wiring exits from the top rather than the bottom hence why ‘standard’ inner bowls / build retainers make the bulb fix upside down, I fear another wallet ...
