Re: Early Browns Lane Cars

Don't think it is a Factory owned car as they had a published specific placement of the front number plate, and that is not it!

Try fitting a S2 belt: https://www.sngbarratt.com/English/#/UK ... 1e742f235b

Only cost you £8 to find out if it works :shrug:

Re: Loft insulation ?

Aston Martin DB4/5/6 used lambswool for noise insulation in cavities but that attracted moisture and caused rot. If you want to replace the insulation I suggest looking at the polyester acoustic wadding that is used in speaker cabinets or in furniture.

Re: Fan Belt Late S1 cars

Have a look at this thread: viewtopic.php?p=128591#p128591

Specifically:

C24291 - For the 4.2 cars the belt was changed to C24291 to accommodate the alternator pulley with its different diameter to the dynamo and had a 40.5" outside circumference.

Re: what to do

But do try to keep to a period Jaguar colour. Lots of choice and you can find examples of cars and paint codes in the Forum Knowledge Base.

Re: [edited] Spin on oil filter vs retrofitting OEM filter housing on Series 1

Yes, they modified the filter housing again for the S2 cars so it was a problem back in the day. At least you don't have to change the filter that often and whilst it may be a bit of a fiddle that is part of the joy of owning an old car :bigrin:

Re: Cigar lighter 3.8 E Type POSITIVE EARTH

One of the purple wires goes to the fuse and carries 12 volts, the other purple wire takes power on to the interior light via the switch. Suggest you fit a male spade crimp connector to the red wire and plug it into the existing cable connector. https://i.postimg.cc/Hs6JwPgs/male-blade-locking-paren...

Re: Cigar lighter 3.8 E Type POSITIVE EARTH

It is a generic lighter fitted to many cars of the period and some kit cars. The put the tail on in case someone does not have a crimp tool and wants to just patch into the existing wiring.

Red top Facet pumps are i believe cheaper..you will need a pressure regulator to ensure correct delivery....you will need to check specifications...flow rate etc....think they will make more noise.....Steve
The noise the Facet makes is intolerable IMHO, especially in a FHC.

The original bolt incorporates a hex head and washer as one pre-formed assembly:

If you are using a plain hex head bolt you need a suitable washer.

Re: [edited] Spin on oil filter vs retrofitting OEM filter housing on Series 1

I did the same although I did not realise the old ring was still in the housing groove :banghead: Use the new rubber seal and dump the old one. No need for anything else. No glue or silicone.

Try again, no damage other than hurt pride!

The drain bolt has a copper washer - size it by eye! Ditto with washer #4 - it is only there to keep the spring from gouging the felt washer.
