Re: Hi Torque starter motor

Jiminsd, My wife thought the E was bank account sponge, then at first opportunity she came out with me after the mini rebuild....she’s now not so concerned about the costs, she smiled for hours! Sadly not so many smiles as a drive in her Smart Roadster gives her...I’m very definitely second to that!...

Re: E-type in Norway

Vegard ,
I know that I have viewed a very old post but your problem then is one that troubles me currently.
My handbrake light is constantly on, the switch is ok and there are no loose wires in the dash.
What turned out to be your solution. Any comments welcome.

Re: ser 3 driveshafts

send your old shaft to Dave Mac and ask him to measure and duplicate. In the unlikely event that its not correct, then its his problem.
dont think you'll get any problems though.

Hi everyone,I must confess to being slightly perturbed that no one has this information, can any forum member recommend a website for information? Has anyone done this task themselves...I’m sure they have.
Any info much appreciated.
