Re: New member Greetings from the Bavarian Alps

They are also used for setting ride height. Coil over shocks are pointless bling on an E-Type and I speak as someone who has tried most 'upgrades'. I could never work out why you need coil springs and torsion bars especially as they work in different ways - torsion bars get progressively stiffer whi...

Re: Radiator Hose Lubricants

Yep, red rubber grease will allow you to remove the hoses in a few years time. Other products will weld them in place.

Re: New member Greetings from the Bavarian Alps

I think you will find the standard Boge shocks are the best match for the E-Type. They are as close as you can get to the original Girling. Coil-overs on an E-Type? :banghead: Norman Dewis covered 1,250,000 miles refining the E-Type so it fascinates me why people offer these bolt on goodies with no ...

Re: Which 185 tyre: Dunlop or Pirelli or Michelin ?

I have Dunlop SP Sports on my FHC and Michelin XVS on my OTS. The Dunlop's fill the wheel arches out better and look fatter than the XVS. However if you like driving enthusiastically the XVS's are the clear winner as they instill more confidence and hold the road better especially in the wet. They a...

Re: Mangoletsi ITG Air Filter from SNG

You will usually need UE needles (the filter allows more air in which weakens the mixture with UM needles). If you have a highly tuned engine you may need UO needles but if you are going in that direction you will need to set the car up on a rolling road. The Mangoletsi filter is made by ITG but in ...

Re: Wire Wheels Interchange

Ray Livingston used a method using plastic insulating tape and silicone adhesive. Basically smear the wheel with silicone (optional) and the wrap with insulating tape. Seems to work. Check J-L for more information.

Re: Phone / sat nav adaptor

Bear in mind you cannot just swap the leads on the standard lighter socket as the case is earthed through the console. You could replace it with one of the plastic bodied ones though but the auxiliary socket in the glove box is the best solution, not least because as you change gear you will knock t...

Re: Engine oil leaks

One other notorious area for leaks is the pipe between the oil filter and sump. This is because the current replacement pipes are of a constant bore whereas the fittings are a different size. And no matter how much you tighten up the clips there always seems to be a leak. The solution is to have a t...

Re: Phone / sat nav adaptor

Simply mount either a lighter socket or USB connector into the cubby hole and you can decide which polarity you want; it is made of fibre board so electrically isolated. More info here: http://forum.etypeuk.com/viewtopic.php?p=721#p721
