Re: Filling in the blanks

James, have you tried contacting Jaguar Heritage for a certificate, it will give you the date of manufacture, the original colour, plus, more importantly all the numbers; engine, gearbox, body and car (vin). Hope this helps. Also there are a few Oz restorers on here who might help with the sale. Geoff

Re: Engine breather hose.

Lee, is it really necessary to keep quoting previous posts? It takes up valuable space and if you do need to quote it can be cut down to just the relevant sentence rather than a complete, long post.

Re: series 2 1969 FHC Tyre size

To get the correct rolling diameter you need the same tyres as the Series 3: 205/70 VR15.
Though you would be advised to try out standard 185-15s even if only to have a benchmark.

Re: What engine and box?

Peter, welcome to the forum, you'll find lots of help here. If you look in the knowledge section you'll see the difference between the normal FHC and the 2+2. In simple terms 9 inches longer and a couple of inches higher roof. Others who have done the work will chime in, but one of the popular manua...

Re: MOT Time!!

Speaking with DVLA about my tax renewal I was told you don't declare it until you've decided not to have an MOT. So when the MOT is due later this year, if I decide not to MOT then next June when the tax is due it will automatically register that the car does not have an MOT. Sorry, not the clearest...

Re: Fosseway brake upgrade

Christopher, can you imagine the skill of those in the RAF (and elsewhere) who were required to learn how to do as neat a job in a part of an aircraft they can't actually see when they are doing the wire locking, all done by feel.

Re: How many made

In the knowledge section you'll see information for converting from LHD to RHD, I'm sure you'll be able to interpret it for the RHD-LHD process. Can't think of many people who will have done that.
