Re: DISAPPEARING BRAKE PEDAL

My guess would be air in the system. Suggest you start by fully bleeding the system using new brake fluid (it should be changed every two years anyway).

Re: FACTORY FIT - Series 1 3.8

Good to hear from you Dave! Dealers placed customer and stock orders for the car with their Distributor who then placed the orders with the Jaguar Factory. The Factory had little sight or interest in the final destination other than the cars were bound for the USA and the records would only show the...

Re: Sovy Failure

The originals I bought were cosmetically very good and barely required any cleaning. After fitting them though they leaked. Here is one of them: https://i.imgur.com/C7WQJsa.jpg You can see how this one split. I did try to weld a repair using a kit designed for the job and even used plastic from anot...

It was posted on Facebook by an onlooker so JD or their current owners can not ask for it to be removed:

Yes Ralph, but to be fair they are not subjected to rapid fluctuations in temperature or the stresses and vibrations in the engine bay.

Not that it makes much difference unless you have a very early car but please can you add the model and date to your signature. Have you got all the pieces?

Re: Oil levels

A member here had his engine ruined by filling with excess oil (quite a lot of it though). Once the level in the sump rises to be in contact with the crank the afore mentioned frothing occurs and the oil pump can't deal with it.

Re: Oil levels

Likely you have been overfilling. What you have done is the correct thing by filling with the correct quantity and then 'marking' where the oil level sits on the dip stick. Going forward top up to that mark. Unlikely any harm will have been done. Things go really badly wrong if you over fill to the ...

Re: Quick Release Steering Wheel

My garage is alarmed and I do not remove the steering wheel when it is in there, other than for easy maintenance access. I only remove it when I leave the car away from home. So not a problem.

Re: creak in the steering column

Firstly it depends whether you have the felt bushes or the Elastollan ones. The felt reproduction ones are very thick and you need to soak them in a jar of oil for a couple of weeks before using. The Elastollan (plastic) are better but you need to modify them to fit your car. With the column on the ...
