Re: FACTORY FIT - Series 1 3.8

Hi Ian I encourage people to question what is written in this thread as it forces further research and ultimately a better understanding of the car so your comments have not been in vain. As regards the NIVOCODE sensors the only Jaguar documented evidence we have is the August 1961 SPC illustration....

Re: FACTORY FIT - Series 1 3.8

Found this one of four photo's attributed to Jaguar (Belgium) of 77 RW during the demonstration runs at Geneva March 1961: https://i.imgur.com/ma6kYya.jpg Looks like the Sovy sensors caps are unmarked. A report by Norman Dewis on the Geneva show demo cars had this to say: "Brake fluid leaking from r...

Re: OBL = $565k

Arguably sourcing original parts? Also I see the bonnet was missing so making a new one with the original shape louvres would have taken a lot of time to complete.

Re: FACTORY FIT - Series 1 3.8

The subject of bottle sensors/caps was detailed by Geoff Green earlier in the thread http://forum.etypeuk.com/viewtopic.php?p=44369#p44369 but happy to continue the discussion. I have not looked into it myself. According to Geoff there were three colours of Sovy sensor caps - black, red (used on Lot...

Re: OBL = $565k

The review view mirror on 885018 also is incorrect - should have the pointed (not curved) stem.

The one fitted is from a later car.

Re: Series 1 header tank

All 3.8's were fitted with the Marston radiator at the Factory. Yours, along with the header tank, is an after-market item. Jaguar issued the C25070 brass radiator which appeared in the parts bulletin in 1965 as a replacement for the Marston but it had indented sides. Everything we know about 3.8 r...

It has the wrong bumper seals - they should be thin.

The brake bottle caps should be NIVOCODE

Re: OBL = $565k

Yes, repro 'Jacuar' spinners with black paint. Shame as it is a rare car. For that money you think they would have sprung for an original key fob!

Re: Car jacking

The spinners should be tightened to 220lb/ft. Three whacks with a lead hammer usually achieves that (wheels off the ground, spinner hand tight). With Lionel's tool you start by tightening the spinner with a torque wrench until muscle memory teaches you how much force to apply. After that a 3/4" sock...

Re: Diff oil leak

Check the breather on the top of the diff has not been blocked. Pressure builds as the oil gets hot and it gets forced out.

Re: Series 1.5 wiper motor

The DL3a wiper motor was indeed only fitted to S1.5 USA LHD cars which is a shame because it is a far better solution than the DL3 because the park control is on the motor itself and can be adjusted easily. No problem in converting it to RHD parking as you just need to rotate the paxolin disc on the...

Re: Car jacking

I should point out two things: 1. The Porsche jack is so strong you can use it to jack the car under any appropriate point the nub will safely fit. You can also adapt a rubber pad to fit the nub e.g. https://i.postimg.cc/nV6Mg6ny/s-l1600-1.jpg 2. There are two styles of Porsche 944 jack - one with t...

Re: rolling road figures

The guys at the rolling road thought the end plate of the K&Ns were close to the bell-mouths h, so tried a run without filters, expecting to see a power increase. Refitting the filters didn’t reduce the power though, so they’ve stayed on for now. The problem is the sharp edge to the intake's either...
