Re: Brake Warning Light

Hi Alan, the microswitch is at the bottom of the handbrake handle. I seem to recall that it is easy to adjust but you do need to remove the tunnel cover. Sorry

Re: Tyre pressure

Thank you, David. Being more pedestrian in my driving style than you or Jenks methinks staying with 32 all round might suit. However, you've given me something to think about.

Re: Tyre pressure

David, out of interest what differences did you feel you achieved with your preferred tyre pressures?

Peter, welcome to the forum. We'll enjoy hearing more of your E Types, both from years gone by and your present examples. You'll get lots of help and advice on here. From your years of ownership you might be able to help others

Re: First problem.. Series 1 advice sought please

You could try Ken Verity in Rotherham 07977 198350 (I think that's his number) Ken Jenkins is also a good man to contact http://www.ukjag.co.uk/stock/. He knows classic Jaguars very well and is the technical advisor to the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club. I'm guessing it is hydraulic from what you say. Good...

Re: Finding another Series 1 crank ?

Rory, is it worth contacting Ken Jenkins (http://www.ukjag.co.uk/stock/) to see if he can help supply one?
Otherwise would any of the engine restorers, Rob Beere, CMES, etc. be able to help? You've probably already tried them in which case ignore my ramblings :roll:

Rory, will all your photos be reinstated? For I find your comprehensive explanations of great use. I've even downloaded words and photos into word/pdf documents for ready reference.

Re: Royal Jaguar?

Imagine how good that car would be if they dropped an in-line six-cylinder in the nose.... :bigrin: And judging by the grins on the faces of the young men organising car parking at an event we attended in our six cylinder powered E Type over the weekend, then they certainly like the sound when give...

Re: 4.2 Clutch cover measurement

Steve, is it an internal or external measurement you need?
I've a clutch and gearbox sat in the garage, do I need to remove the clutch from the gearbox and measure somewhere inside?

Re: Intro from Texas

Welcome to the forum, I presume your name is Mike. It seems strange how people wish to change engines in an E Type for there's nothing wrong with the trusty XK 6 cylinder engine. So glad to hear you've got it back in place. This forum is very friendly and helpful so please feel at ease to ask any qu...

Simone, welcome to the forum. Lots of friendly and helpful advice here. There are a couple of people on here in Italy, I'm sure they may be able to advise. One thing is that your car is now old enough not to need an MOT, whether that'll encourage you to keep it on UK plates is up to you. Also, if yo...

Re: DAB radio for 1974 E type.

Louise, a quick search gave this: https://www.classiccarstereo.co.uk/

There are others around who deal in old car radios modernised to play DAB etc.
There have been comments on the forum, too.
Try a search here for "radio" and I'm sure you'll see some other ideas.

Good hunting

Re: DAB radio for 1974 E type.

Hello Louberry, there are quite a few radios that will do the job, e.g. https://www.caraudiocentre.co.uk/product_m-pioneer-mvh-x580dab_p-33241.htm Can you say whether your husband will be happy to fit it or need to have done for him? Also a budget would help. I've fitted a simple Pure DAB circa £70 ...
