Re: 3.8 FHC Door Detail

Great, thank you George.
Happy to take any more in case there are slight differences with other cars.

3.8 FHC Door Detail

Hello forum, Would someone somewhere in lock-down world be able to post a photo or two of a finished car (3.8 FHC) showing the same part of the door as is being pointed out in this photo (where the window frame enters the door). I live 3 hours from Melbourne and am not allowed to travel to look at o...

Re: Wipers - RHD bench test video

Sorry Joe,
Just measured the two arms & mine are identical. I’ll come back your comment if I have trouble on installation with the travel of the wipers. Thanks again for the tip.

Re: Wipers - RHD bench test video

Thanks Joe, There’s no conversion here - my car is original RHD Australian delivered. We were careful when we dismantled it to label the arms (assuming they were correct). Thanks for the heads up. I won’t assume everything is spot on when we re-install it. It was just nice to see it operate after do...

Wipers - RHD bench test video

Hello all, For your viewing pleasure.... I apologise if someone has already posted this but I couldn't find one if the past week of searching. While avoiding the big wide world, I wanted to make sure my wipers would work when I am ready to put them back in the car. I am posting this video to help an...

Fuel and Brake Lines

Hello all, I have given up looking to find the correct location of the brake and fuel lines underneath the car, and how they are connected to the chassis. C10268 or just C10406# ? I cannot trust what we pulled apart is correct and would greatly appreciate help/direction/photos to run these lines cor...

Re: Firewall “cut-out”

Thank you both Christopher and Mike. We will use your information to keep the project moving - just what we needed. And thank you, Christopher, for the tip about it not being a “mount”. We will take your advice and refer to the manual and fit it correctly. Australia is a great place to restore a Jag...

Firewall “cut-out”

Hi, My 3.8 FHC is undergoing a full restoration. Before my ownership the car sustained damage to the firewall where the rear engine mount attaches, as per photo (not my car). We have welded it up but need to make the cutout where I have circled in yellow. If someone could supply dimensions A (to the...

That’s the answer.
Won’t be needing that for a while so I can now store it correctly.

What’s this ?

Hello forum, Just a quick simple question. Could someone please tell me where this bracket belongs (assuming it came from my 1964 3.8 FHC in the first place!) ? I presume it forgot to get labelled on the tear down and I have searched and given up. Once I know, I can put it in the correct box until I...

Re: IRS - Shock Absorbers - Plan B ?

Thank you all so much for your prompt responses. I have never been comfortable once I discovered that I had different springs, so I am happy to take the advice to either get them tested as they are or to replace them. We feel my car was raced a bit based on the panel damage and hasty repairs so the ...

IRS - Shock Absorbers - Plan B ?

Hello all, I am doing a complete rebuild on my ‘64 FHC 3.8 and need 6 new shock absorbers. I can get hold of 4 rear Boges, but am struggling to find front ones. Apparently Boge have stopped making them for the E Type. So the question is : can I mix Boges on the rear and something else on the front ?...

Re: Fitting Gearstick shifter

Thanks Bill for your measurements.
It all makes sense now !
I will go back to the suppliers & won’t have to leave the car in second gear after all !
An email is on its way.

Re: Fitting Gearstick shifter

Thanks Andrew,
Looks like my Thackery doesn’t have that diagonal cross-over bend in it & my Tufnol washers also look too big.
I shall persevere.

Re: Fitting Gearstick shifter

Thanks Geoff, I hope you’re correct. Here’s a another photo of part number C1929 recently ordered from the usuals. I agree that this would rip into the Tufnol washer, but I can only trust it is correct - this is the first time in my life I have encountered a “Thackeray”, so I hope it is correct. It ...

Re: Fitting Gearstick shifter

Thanks Bill,
You have reassured me that I have the correct order of parts, however as per my post #1 I come up 2.1mm short, so something is wrong with my parts - maybe my part A is of a different car? I would love to have that inside measurement.
Thanks,
Glenn

Re: Fitting Gearstick shifter

Sorry for the confusion Christopher. I have attached another photo to show my problem. The diagrams don’t show whether the washers go inside or out. It makes sense for the fibre washer to be adjacent to the shifter, and if the spring washer is outside there is too much play. Thanks Glenn https://i.p...
