Remove the switch and jumper the wires to check if the problem is in the wiring or in the switch. In both my e types I have had what you describe happen and both times it was a failure in the switch. The switch can be taken apart and repaired quite easily or replacements are available.
Hi John. I have not done it myself but it is almost surely doable as there is a small wiring harness available for sale. I see it periodically on ebay plus have seen it listed in the catalogue of one of the common vendors. Can’t remember which one.
Welcome. Have you already inspected the car or is it sight unseen? Either way here is hoping it exceeds your expectations. Purchasing an e-type is always exciting

As I have my car presently completely dismantled I was thinking of putting a restrictor plate in the filler a few centimetres down from the top to prevent the larger diesel nozzle from entry. Does anyone know if such a thing is produced commerc...
Retry on the pics. Mounted on rotisserie and ready to take to the blasters when the weather improves. I have had no response to my question about recommendations for media type.

Stu. Not so much greedy as poor impulse control! A little history. I bought the first e back in the early nineties. It is the 4.2ots that I am working on now.
