S2 OTS locked out of the boot

Hi all Soooo.... well... yup. I was adjusting the boot latch today on my Series 2 OTS and closed it. Unfortunately I had not fully tightened the release cable and when I pulled it to open the boot lid, it just came straight out. So the question is, where is the access to flick the boot lock open aga...

rubber on torsion bar shields and LH mudshield and handbrake aperture!

Hi I got replacement torsion bar shields and a LH mudshield as mine were all missing. From the parts catalogue there are meant to be rubber strips along one side of each of them. I have the rubber, I just can't see how to attach it to the shields. The wheel arch rubbers are riveted with the strips, ...

Re: Noisy / whining gearbox

It is the bolts from the bell housing to the gearbox adaptor plate, held by the tab-washers that have come lose. There is a hole at the bottom of the bell housing, and looking you can see. Currently there is one bolt with the tab washer hanging down where its pair has come out. I remember at the tim...

Re: new wiring harness

Autosparks. I'm pleased with them. Deal with them direct. They sometimes supply the dash loom with the newer T5 bulb holder fittings instead of the original. Check this if you are going for concourse. Also, if you want anything extra adding in - think of it now. You can get it added to the loom. Rev...

Re: Noisy / whining gearbox

Well, I've managed to locate at least some of the cause. Had the car up on the lift today and I can see that some of the bolts securing the bell housing to the gear box have come out and others seem somewhat loose! So that will explain the excessive movement and some of the new noises. Horrible job ...

Re: Noisy / whining gearbox

Yes, the gear box is 8 months old, so still under warranty. Not something I really relish taking out and changing though. Dropping the whole engine out etc. Maybe in the winter. The noise however that is concerning me, is how it acts in neutral. This is new. Also that it rocks from left to right. Th...

Re: Noisy / whining gearbox

It's a Jag-T5 from Elite. I was thinking it is more of a problem with the clutch to gearbox / throw bearing from the noise.

Noisy / whining gearbox

Hi I've noticed my gearbox is now starting to make some noise, especially when I go into neutral. If i depress the clutch, the noise goes away. It also makes similar noises when I take my foot off the accelerator. I made a small video, and it also seems to be moving left to right a bit. This was dri...

Test with a ohmmeter the switch contacts are connecting as you would expect.

I've had 2 switches from a well known supplier that only connected the 12v feed on the low position and not the high position.

Thank you very much to everyone. I took the carburettor covers off on Saturday and found with the rear carb, the whole piece incl. diaphragm lifted up together. The diaphragm seems to be stuck in an "up" position. So I cleaned it all up (there seemed to be a bit of dirt in around the sides etc.). To...

Suddenly running very rich

Hi After some very wet weather last week and the weekend I started the car on Tuesday, only to have it spluttering terribly. It appears it is running very rich - evidenced by increased fuel consumption, and the smell of petrol from the exhaust. It idles roughly, not much acceleration power etc. I'm ...

I can confirm also. White wire (from Rev counter on a S2) to + Red wire from Petronix to + Black wire to - black and white wire that was there is now redundant. Interestingly the wiring diagram from Coventry shows the white wire from the Rev counter to the -ve terminal on the coil. This had me stump...

GPS signals are better with a clear view of the sky, but depending on how good the receiver is, will work behind glass and metal, as long as the shielding is fairly minimal. These units also have a GSM receiver, which will triangulate according to mobile masts. Pretty much the same as the features a...

Oil Return Hose

Hi At some point on my travels through the www I saw a supplier for the Oil Return hose C31171 superseded by C20552 (from the oil cleaner housing to the pipe on the sump) - who had made the pipe ends different diameters to match the connection points. This is an area where I do tend to get weeping l...
