Re: Rubber bushes on wiper motor mounting plate studs

Re: Instrument bezel replacement advice please.

Hi Simon. Its best to fit the glass to the bezels first & then twist them on to the instrument case. With the small instruments you can get the glass in the bezel with the tags turned over first. With the speedo etc you will have to place the glass in the bezel & then bend down the tags, then twist ...

Andrew.
Could you tell me the colour of the wire going to the upper brush holder in the picture.
Also for a RHD car should the crank on the motor rotate anti clockwise.
Many thanks Neal.

Re: Cost of new glass

No I just ordered it, thanks to Angus taking his original screen there & Pilkingtons modifying their mould tool all is now well.
Buy the way I have a S1 FHC just check that the screens are the same.

Re: Cost of new glass

I had a new screen for my FHC last year from Pilkingtons & it was a perfect fit no problems at all.
They were also very helpful.
It takes longer to fit the chromes even when using the original ones.

Re: The end for the MOT for vehicles of historic interest

You will still be able to take your E-type & have it tested if you want to. When they stopped testing pre 1960 cars I still had my XK120 tested every year. Just had my E-type MOT yesterday ( passed) & the tester confirmed just bring it back next year. I know some people will not bother & stop but it...

Re: Plastic sleeving on tabs for harness/fuel pipes?

You can buy PVC sleeving from Auto Electric Supplies in a large range of sizes which means you can get a size which is a good fit & no need to use the heat gun. It only costs pence per metre so you can try a few different sizes.

Re: Cadmium Plating

Hi Richard. There is one in Exeter South West Metal Finishes , who I know well but they only do MOD & aircraft work. They don't like doing car work in any type of finish & do not like doing strip & re plate work. They only plate new work this is because of the contamination risk to their tanks. Even...

Re: Cadmium Plating

Be careful with Zinc Nickel as you can get a build up a round the edges of holes which can then brake off. This is a problem which is coming up when going over to Zinc Nickel from Cad. When its used there is often a chamfer added to holes to stop this. I use Zinc & silver pass on E-type parts with g...

Re: Polishing/cleaning rocker covers and inlet manifold

Most of the firms that do plating also do polishing as most times its required as part of the plating process.
Adam Howell do good work & state in their advert they do rocker covers etc.
Also Castle Chrome.
It is best to take them off to get them polished the first time.
