Re: Driving during lockdown

For the Rememberance services, there were reduced restrictions on gatherings, particularly if outside. I was driving back from taking the dog for a walk and was surprised when I saw about 25 villagers gathered (albeit very well spaced) and a handful of uniformed personnel paying their respects, at a...

Re: On all four

Great work. It’s always a morale boost to be able to tick off a milestone.
It seems like only yesterday I was at the same point!

Great paint colour by the way!

Re: Bracket

What car have you got? - put the model and year in the signature so you can get more targeted responses.
Don’t remember seeing a bracket like that when I restored my S1 3.8.

Re: Fed up as a washer drops inside the timing case cover

If it’s of any use, I bought a Nacot wireless HD endoscope from Amazon £20. It connects wirelessly to my iPhone, has some hooks and other attachments and has been really useful.

Re: Nuts & Bolts

:yeahthat:
I printed off the nuts,bolts,washers etc codes from the forum and covered the pages in plastic film as I used them so often (in conjunction with the various spares books) to get the correct items.

Invaluable!

Re: Nuts & Bolts

Some of the parts suppliers list the sizes, as does the Jaguar parts catalog in most cases.

Re: Indicators not working and Positive earth

Hi, You might be able to get at it by removing the underdash trim panel either side of the steering column that are normally held in place by self tappers. I seem to remember that there are a whole load of single and double bullet connectors that get tucked into the bulkhead on the steering side of ...

Re: Indicators not working and Positive earth

Not boring Tony - problems with indicators seem to pop up quite regularly on the forum so it’s always useful to see how they are tested and (hopefully) resolved. Looking at the wiring diagram, it looks like there is a double bullet connector that takes the green wire live feed to the flasher, choke ...

Re: Indicators not working and Positive earth

Hi Tony, I’m assuming you have a 3.8 given the positive earth config. If the wiring is standard, then there should be a switched power feed from the ignition switch (white) to fuse 7. Then a green from the other side of the fuse to your flasher unit. I believe this also feeds the choke and low fuel ...

Re: Quarterlight seal

Hi,
This might help as it shows the orientation of the seal on the driver’s (rhd) side.

Yes, the car was lhd originally and this pic was taken during strip down. The first photos I posted were during the restoration after the rhd conversion. The dip is now on the right side!

Re: Photo required please

You could probably make one, using the rh as a template. When I recovered mine, I found that vinyl suppliers offered samples for free, which was enough to recover both of them. On the 3.8, they are just thin metal, but you could use thick plastic or tin instead.
