Re: Series 1 4.2 roadster gear knob original

Ahh, I assumed the weight came from brass, never really bothered to check. On the other hand brass is non magnetic and I would have thought pot metal would not have that much weight. Interesting.

Re: Trying to find 191 LUA

Just received this from Richard Buck: "Hi, One of your members is trying to find E-Type 191 LUA - I owned it for three years.

Re: FACTORY FIT - Series 1 3.8

Air Conditioning It has always been assumed that air-conditioning was not offered by Jaguar until late in production. This leaflet was included in the owners wallet of car 886782 built in January 1963. I assume the air conditioner was fitted by the Jaguar importer or dealer in the USA rather than t...

The originals weigh about the same as a billiard ball. They are a heavy Bakelite type material with a brass core.

Re: Oil Filler Cap, Gap to Bonnet, and Improving Breathing ?

Don't see the need for the oil traps, they are only going to get gummed up. Just run two pipes straight out - simple and clean. The original gauze (or baffle on the first 500 cars) is still there to trap and return as much oil as possible to the circulation. This is the system used on those very ear...

Re: Oil Filler Cap - and gap to bonnet ?

It was Andrew Turvey at CMC who diagnosed the rope seal failure after 8,000 miles and concluded it was due to the crankcase pressure generated by my particular engine with 9.5:1 compression and trick cams. He felt the standard vent was of insufficient diameter and could become blocked (and I assume ...

Re: Oil Filler Cap - and gap to bonnet ?

and who thinks this is anyway unnecessary and a waste of time ? I am all for making useful changes but I think this is a pointless exercise for a road car. I had a problem with the engine in my OTS generating too much crankcase pressure which caused the rear rope seal to fail. Bear in mind this eng...

Re: Newby

really these details are the only external differences between the 3.8 and 4.2 litre versions Actually the resonators are also different on the 3.8 and 4.2 cars. Trivia: The Factory put the E-Type badge above the Jaguar one and as a result it has become one of the few cars in history known first by...

Re: Classic overalls

Pit lane mechanics wore white overalls both to make them visible to drivers and also the tight fitting meant there was a greatly reduced chance of the clothing getting caught in moving parts during wheel changes etc. In workshops and Factories the supplied coats (white, brown, blue, grey) often deno...

The round plastic one was Factory Fit. The leather one is after market and not particularly nice - the Jaguar script is wrong.

Re: Air filter assembly.

They are all made by one company and that applies to many E-Type parts. The market is too small for several vendors to go into production of the same parts.

Re: Headlight wiring and relay

The S1 did not use relays for the headlights as standard which is why we developed the headlamp relay upgrade. There is a relay for the horns though. Could be a change made by a previous owner.
