Re: washer bottle help

On my previous etype when the fitted pump failed as yours has I placed a generic pump behind the glove box and plumbed/ wired it in. No one would know and it worked successfully for years. On my latest car I had the same issue but this time purchased a generic pump then bored a hole in the top of th...

Re: S2 Ignition Switch Bracket

I agree a few of us could need this including me. When I did my RHD conversion I moved the switch to the other side of the column. Cant think why now but it was needed. I recall that I had to redrill the bracket to get the screw holes in the correct place to avoid fouling. Or have I done it wrong! Tim

Re: Member Scammed

A truly disturbing occurrence. I have always found forum members to be honest and trustworthy. I have sold items, bought item from members, have given away things that I don’t need and received items free from other chaps. It’s part of what makes this such a great resource.I’m grateful to be part of...

Re: S1.5 question

I placed mine on the LHS
The bulkhead has captive nuts in the correct place.

Radiator expansion tank goes on the Right, again fixing points are present.

All a bit tight with throttle linkage, pipes and cables.

Re: S2 IRS rebuild

Make your own remote bleeder from bits of spare brake tubing . Save the £100 and send it to me.

As with my earlier post I’m changing my diff ratio ( actually Alan is doing the technical bit) I’m doing the easy stuff.

IRS = FUN ? It’s bloody heavy dirty work.

Re: Nuts & Bolts

I use Spalding nut &bolt on eBay. Excellent service and prices seem reasonable

For jaguar specific stuff then I use Win Perry (wjperry) also on eBay.

No connection to either other than as a customer

Re: Clutch Slave pin clip

And this is what I find so great about this forum, people go out of their way to assist others. Either by advice, humour or other assistance. In this case offering to take time to make a part.

Good stuff I say.

Re: LHD to RHD conversion query

You don’t need to remove the centre section but you will need to gain access to the space between to bulkheads via the centre dash. When I did mine I replaced all of the vacuum and water pipes. Not difficult but fiddly.

Plenty of threads on this and doing the RHD conversion

IRS removal

I’m changing my diff this winter so I need to drop the IRS. I’ve done this a couple of times before over the years so I’m aware of the process and issues but this time I want to try something different. If I remove the drive shafts completely ( which I need to do anyway) I can then gain access to th...

I’m changing the diff on my car from 3.54 to 3.07 as such I need to recalibrate the speedo. I know I can send the unit off and have this done but has anyone tried to do it themselves using maybe an internal speedo gearset from another model. Just a thought - it can’t be that difficult to work on the...

Re: Which seal to use on sump gasket

From what I recall my sump gasket had a cut out around the seal for the front end but not for the rear neoprene seal and overlapped the seal edge. I think I stuck it to the crankcase using a sealer recommend by Andrew Bowie who posts on this forum. Used a bit of wynns gasket maker to “glue” the seal...
