Re: Inertia seat belts

I'd recommend speaking to Sue at FDTS, very helpful and made up a very good set of inertias for my FHC. Being skinny I needed a better option than the stalk to clip the belt into which would hold the belt too far forward for me. She made a set with webbing instead, much neater and safer.

Re: Original Late E Series II refresh as it unfolds (Aug 1970 Build)

Dana, all looking great, but have you considered changing the rear lights to those made by MarekH of forum fame? They are LED and include reverse lights. The advantage is you can fit the straight exhaust rear pipes rather than the wheelbarrow ones.

Keep up the good work :yellow:

Re: Maintenance Repair Manuals....PDFs

Elliott, look in the knowledge section. However, as is emphasised there, everyone should buy their own copy of the Jaguar Manuals, all available to buy online, and the pdf versions are there to print out a page or two for ready reference. https://www.amazon.co.uk/JAGUAR-MODELS-LITRE-SERVICE-MANUAL/d...

As you can see it is a very friendly and helpful forum and David Jones (Heuer) manages it very well for the benefit of so many people. Let's hope you'll get lots of useful hints and tip...

Re: Federal spec air filter

Steve, you've done a fine job. Beware of movement that will happen when the car is driven, especially of the engine bearers are a bit old. You may find some catching against throttle linkage or pipework. Not to get you overly concerned, but do some checks to make sure it works in action on the road....

Re: brakes stays slightly applied after stop

Elliott, it sounds like you may have sticking master or slave pistons. You can confirm that if you jack up the car, apply the brakes and see if any wheels are free. If all are tight it might suggest it's the master at fault. A complete flush of the brake fluid would be in order as it's hydroscopic a...

Re: RHD 3.8 Instrument panel wiring.

Richard, are any of the wires for optional items or those that were fitted during later years of production and Autosparks include them to cover all options? Can they (not the disgruntled employee :lol: ) advise?

Re: Interior chrome edging strip

Paul, would an option be to find a strip of metal that could be chromed after you've bent it to shape? Especially if you use a shrinker/stretcher tool to bend the strip it would make a mess of any chrome already on a strip, but you could shape if nicely to fit, trim to size then send off for chromin...

Re: Bump Stops in rear arches

My bump stops were removed, presumably, when the fat 205/70 tyres were fitted.
I've searched for the parts shown in that other thread "Ohlins bump rubbers #00563-03" but to no avail.
Does anyone know of where they (or an equivalent) can be found?
Thanks

Re: Brake bleeding problems - silicone fluid

Silicon fluid isn't compatible with some of the seals in older cars designed for DOT4. Which might be the cause for some of your problems. Though it's interesting to hear you say your father's car ran with it. If Angus can get a seal set for the E to change all of them to silicon compatible that wou...
