Re: 1st and 2nd gears locked

Thanks for the feedback! Most refreshing to have confirmation of a fix as some posters just 'hit and run'.

Re: Service & Spares Bulletin Database

Epic work Phil. Do you want to put them in the Forum KB? I have the JHT CD copies of the Bulletins but they cannot be shared digitally as they are protected by Locklizard :roll: although I can get digital copies of individual bulletins if I need to. I also have a full set of Service Bulletins (colou...

Please do not use the 'Attachment' option for photos - it is meant for pdf or Word documents. Use the 'P' logo at the bottom of the editor page to upload your scan as a photo. Better still follow Geoff's advice and sign up for a free IMGUR account https://imgur.com/ - simple and easy to use.

Strikes https://i.imgur.com/CiwLT5J.jpg It is easy to overlook the impact of social unrest in the UK during E-Type production.

Re: Top 10 E-Type models

The decision to develop an all synchromesh gearbox was taken by Jaguar Directors in early 1961. Norman Dewis was testing the in-house Jaguar gearbox (in a 3.8) during February 1963. In January 1964 Claude Bailey reported: "The sample production gearbox built up with gears made from the second produc...

Re: Cylinder head paint

If you don't have pumpkins then what do children carve for Halloween ? My heart bleeds for those poor British children carving turnips and in a pinch parsnips or large radishes. 😱😱 The children dress up a life size straw man in period costume and carry him about in a wheelbarrow begging adults to d...

Re: Cylinder head paint

They did have the original old gold paint or "pumpkin" as Dr. Haddock referred. That color was the subject of much debate years ago and the factory (according to some) disavowed it's existence and only claimed to have used Bradite Old Gold. No other variant of gold anteceded it's use it was stated....

The same small spacers can be used between the radiator and the tie bars. The 4.2 cars used four BD17648 packers between seat slides and floor and four BD13529 packers b...

They are NOT! Connect them to the voltmeter and you will destroy it. It is a simple conversion providing you do it correctly.

Re: New Developments In Rear Crank Sealing

Never used one but I seem to recall you are supposed to superglue the ends together, which in itself convinced me to stick with a rope seal left to soak in a jar of oil for a month before fitting. Did your try glue Rory?

Re: S2 4.2 L engine rebuild - any other things to consider at this time?

The problem with tubular manifolds occurs when a big bore system is fitted. With standard 1.75" bore pipes the 'extraction' of gases at low revs is not as much of a problem. Classic Fabs overcame the problem by using venturi's in the silencers which works to an extent. But if you are going to fit a ...
