:yeahthat:

Also torsion bars are progressive, coil springs are not.

Re: Dynamo conversion

Fosseway use a Nippon Denso alternator within the C45 case so you get the look and brilliant reliability.

Re: FACTORY FIT - Series 1 3.8

Nesting Box Spanners Complete sets of the correctly marked and sized nested box spanners are very difficult to find.

Re: Non-eared Spinners

They do so because the lopped off ear spinners and tool are no longer produced. But those spinners are 'wrong' on the S1 cars supplied to Germany/Switzerland. If you want to replicate them you need to buy eared spinners and hacksaw the ears off. You still have the problem finding the tool of course!

Re: Radio console - speaker cover panels for 3.8

You will need the radio console, speaker grills, ashtray and panel assembly brackets together with the knurled knobs and chrome plated screws to hold it all together. You will need new tapped mounting holes. The cover is the same. All cars from 850752, 861254, 879803 and 889030 had the later trim. J...

Re: Jaguar Sport V5C

Never heard of a Jaguar "Sport". Can you provide more information? All V5's I have seen have the correct description but back in 1966 someone could well have registered it as that rather than E-Type. Strange though given the high profile of the car at the time.

Re: Radio console - speaker cover panels for 3.8

Your car would originally have had the black vinyl dash and centre console so not the alloy dash of the earlier cars. It would also have had the speaker housings you describe - basically the 4.2 style. This change happened in September 1963 from cars 850752, 861254, 879803 and 889030. It would also ...

Silver or white - your choice, both are correct although probably silver on your car. I prefer to use Tippers plates http://www.tippersvintageplates.co.uk/ as they will handcut the characters in the correct 1960's font if you ask. Framptons are cheaper but you will get the current modern computer cu...

Re: Dynamo repairer in Cambs/Beds/Herts/Bucks area?

Get the engine warm, remove fan belt and start car - it will be OK for a couple of minutes. If the rattle is gone then your problem is either the dynamo, water pump or jockey pulley. You can remove the jockey pulley (usually the source of rattles) and run the car without it, if only to test.
