Re: Foam deadening

Peter
Jaguar factory used leather for a small number of parts: top of the seat (sides are vinyl), the backrest front surface and - for manuals- the gaiter of the gear stick. Concerning the materials used for trimming you may check the homepage of trimming shops, e.g. john-skinner.co.uk

Re: Foam deadening

Hi Peter the common foam sheets (supplied by trimmers and the foam used by Jaguar as well) are open cell foam; i.e. if the area around the sill gets wet, the foam acts like a sponge. I used for my car a closed cell foam (the product is called Armacell, 3 mm thickness with adhesive layer, got it via ...

Re: Thread size of front brake bleeding nipples

Hi Andrew, Simon and Steve
Thanks; I understand: I will order non-return bleeding nipples with both thread sizes to make sure that I can install them directly after removing the old nipples. The supplier has already agreed to take the non-fitting parts back.

Re: Series 2 and 3 Headlamp chrome trims supplier?

Hello Simon
Last year I also strained my nerves with the chrome beading. With modest success as far as the fit is concerned. If you manage to find a source for the brass profiles, I would also be very interested in it.

Thread size of front brake bleeding nipples

I am interested in replacing the brake bleeding nipples of my E Type Series III by non-return valve bleeding nipples. One supplier claims metric thread size for front brake bleeding nipples: M10x1x16mm. Is this correct?
Thanks and best regards

Sieve in oil suction pipe // thread oil sump

Today I wanted to do an oil change before the winter break. I noticed that the oil drain plug was only loose in the oil sump: I'm surprised that I didn't lose oil there! After draining the oil I had to find out that the thread of the oil sump is messed up: there is a helicoil like wire spiral in it,...

Re: Adjustable power steering

Thank you for your comments. I think the charm of the kit lies in the fact that the servo support can be regulated by the valve. Building the device is certainly not rocket science, but I would have to buy the necessary tools, which in my opinion would be more expensive than the kit. Best regards Ho...

Adjustable power steering

I am thinking about buying the adjustable power steering kit from Rob Beere.
Who has experience with this kit: are there any disadvantages, is the installation complex?
Thanks and best regards

Re: Door Drain Hole Shroud

Simon Yes, you are right: I also like pragmatism. If you take a closer look at the shrouds, the first thing you can come to is that Jaguar‘s (British Leyland’s) penchant for saving money is the reason for the change in this part with the introduction of the Series 3, especially since two pop rivets ...

Re: Door Drain Hole Shroud

Hi Joe I have not found a supplier for the shrouds for series 3 (shrouds for series 1 and 2 -BD 20878- can be purchased from the usual suppliers). However, you can easily make them yourself; they have a simpler shape than the series 1 and 2, as you can see on the attached photos of the original seri...

How to fasten seat belt retainer

Dear all How to fasten the seat belt retainer (BD40747) to the seat, I assume BD35681 is rivet nut (?); are there standard drill holes in the seat back or do you have to drill them yourself, is there a template for the drill holes? Thanks Holger https://i.postimg.cc/sXTbsjFj/8-DDAD579-C61-A-4844-85-...

Re: Trying to locate BD38047 Seal retainer

George,
I‘d recommend refurbishing the old part (if still available): I had to experience that the repro seal retainers have a very bad fit.
