Re: Made in Taiwan

Possibly Steve but I don’t think so. I stupidly also bought some 3.8 ones only to find that the bolt hole spacing also differs.
These were non returnable soi put them on here for sale but no takers as yet.

Re: Made in Taiwan



Here you can see all three mounted !
Bottom one is the original, middle is the jaguar classic and the top one is the Taiwan copy.

The difference in the end fitting to the caliper is very visible

Re: Made in Taiwan

My retraction forks ordered from Jaguar Classic arrived today. Clearly marked “Made in Britain “ which pleased me! What pleased me more is that the appear to be much closer in shape and size to those originally fitted ( I still have the originals) The Taiwan reproductions look slightly thinner and m...

Re: Rebuilding lsd.

So I’m getting on with rebuilding my IRS after Alan Slawson changed the diff ratio. I’ve got the diff in place on the newly powder coated frame and have just finished getting the wishbones into situ. Whilst doing this it struck me that the bearing arrangement for the wishbones is complicated and fid...

Re: Made in Taiwan

Hi Steve,
Yes, that’s the part.
I’ve decided to return these and have ordered some from Jaguar Classic.

Maybe I’m wrong and the Jaguar ones will also be Taiwan ! Will soon find out.

Thanks for your help

Made in Taiwan

Just had a delivery of some parts from my favourite supplier. Don’t know why but I was surprised- maybe disappointed to see that they came clearly marked “ Made in Taiwan” . Not saying that these won’t be of good quality and will do the job, had I bought via eBay then I would have probably expected ...

Re: Sump Removal - Crankshaft Position

When I did mine (4.2 manual transmission) I had the woodruff key slot pointing to the 1 o’clock position when view from the front.

As others have said getting the clearance between the sump and reaction plate is the key.
Plenty of threads on this

Re: Diff weight/dimensions

Just picked up my diff from Alan Slawson. Looks superb and probably good for another 50 years.
Asked Alan about the weight. 48 kg was his answer and he should know, he’s lifted more of them than most of us.

Re: Ecosse Motorsport

No, it’s not classic fabs. They are still around.

Ecosse Motorsport could be classed as a competitor. Have been around a little while. Mentioned on here a few times.

Ecosse Motorsport

I was just idly browsing on google for exhaust suppliers and thought of the above.
They used to have a website but this has disappeared. Have they finished or maybe changed in some other way.

Anyone know?

I'd settle for a Mini skirted, 60's style leggy brunette dolly bird! The ideal optional extra for an E-Type.
I had one that came with my first e type.
Actually still have her, we have gracefully matured together. I don’t know how I could manage without her after 40+ years

Thankful
