Re: Early series 1 door handle seals

I think they used dum dum to seal the handle.

Re: Stoneleigh spares day

IIRC the event was run by the now defunct JCC? We had a stall in March and have to say, picked up quite a bit of business even though it was quiet (Julians mob weren't there ;) ).

Re: Am I overheating?

Paul,

while you have the Otter switch out, check the temperature range of that as well. Might not be switching off at the correct temperature.

Re: Top 10 E-Type models

I agree. I also believed that the last 3.8s were fitted with the later box but can see no evidence to support this.

Re: Noise at front of engine

Christopher, no problem (in fact, I didn't listen to the video as I have no sound at work so you are probably correct!).

Removing the belt is always my favoured option as it very quickly identifies where the issue could be.

Re: Top 10 E-Type models

Lots of early numbers in the early 4.2 range but none that I can see in late 3.8s.

Re: Top 10 E-Type models

Just checked the box. Casting date is 2nd October 63

EJ819 stamped in the same place as the Moss box and not on the top plate.

Re: Am I overheating?

Paul, it is the advance and retard you need to check. We had an XK120 where this had failed and caused overheating.

Re: Noise at front of engine

Take the fan belts off and run the engine (very briefly). If the noise disappears then it is in the water pump, alternator or tensioner.

Re: Top 10 E-Type models

We have just rebuilt an all synchro box with Aug 63 cast into the body. Numbers are stamped in the same place as a Moss box.

Re: Diamond Jubilee E-Type's

That’s very kind of you Ash but I’m not sure it’s the type of commission we’d be interested in without fully understanding the brief. Too many potholes to fall into.
