IRS cover

Dear colleagues, I just discovered that there is no cover above the IRS in the boot floor. :seeingstars I think someone has cut out the floor to exchange brake pads. I canˋt believe that. I have just some damping material above. https://s1.postimg.org/9lmhzum58v/20171007_153918.jpg This car has to b...

Re: Rear light lenses

Hello Marek,
Thank's for your advice.
So I will just keep the SNG parts and be happy that I got everything working again.
Best regards

Rear light lenses

Dear colleagues, I had to buy new lenses for the rear lights of my 71 S3. The spares from SNG fit well but the red coloured areas are much lighter than on the original lenses. Are there parts available which come closer to the original or might my originals (unfortunately broken) have darkened over ...

Re: Series 3 idling

Hi, my carb specialist JPA, close to Hamburg Germany, has recommended to me to use stronger springs on all 4 carbs. They fit without any change to the carbs. I have just finished the complete overhaul of all carbs but have not mounted them again so it will take some time until I can report about the...

exhaust

Dear Forum colleagues, before trying to start the engine I have to buy a new exhaust system for my 1971 S3. The pre owner has removed the mid silencers to get a better Sound (see other posts concerning sound). The rear silencer is so much corroded that it collides with the body if I tighten the moun...

Re: Fuel Pump Wiring

Hi,

do you want to know the Routing of the wires or the wiring of the pump itself?
The wiring is quite easy (I used an autosparks harness) and is quite well shown in the wiring diagram.
(41 is the pump, white + wires). There is no fuse! so I will ad a fuse by myself.

Re: Power steering problem

Hi,

don't apologize, I always take a lot of pictures and then, when it comes to assembly again, just the pic I need is not there.
Even one week after I have taken some things apart I can't exactly remember how it should be.

Don't give up

Re: Vacuum leak V12

Just one short comment.
The pipes are listed in the SNG catalogue in the section carburettor mountings (at least for my EV12)

Which material did you use?

Rubber or clear plastic hoses?

Re: battery gauge

Hello Marek,

mine is definitly damaged, I have tested it with a laboratory voltage source and it doesn't work at all.
The coil must be burnt.

battery gauge

Dear forum members,

can a battery gauge instrument be repaired?
The pre owner of my car has already disassembled it and the internal wire around the bi metal is burned.

Are there spare parts available (or repair sets)

Best regards

Re: Stromberg carb temperature compensators

Hello Marek,

Mine were completely stuck in different opening positions.
I think they might work after cleaning and adjustment for some time, but are they really necesssary?

Perhaps someone un the forum has already tested the differences between blocked and not blocked.

Best regards

Stromberg carb temperature compensators

Dear forum members, my carb specialist has told me that I should screw the temperature compensators to completely closed position because they never work properly and are not really necessary. It is better to have them all closed than having different bypass volumes. What do you think, what are your...

Re: direction indicator: left one does not blink

Hi, if you remove the rear left lamp completely, you can access the ground cable. It is a short one with bullet connector directly at the rear side of the housing. It goes from the housing to a left side ground connection point behind the tank. I have just replaced this connection and I could access...

Re: engine oil dipstick

I think I found the solution! :bouncyyellow: The bracket must have been fixed directly with the lower left flange screw of the carburettor!. It fits and I found a scratch mark on the carb flange from a notch that inhibits rotation of the bracket! That must have been the solution until implementation...

Re: engine oil dipstick

Hi, I understand that but it must have been fixed somewhere for at least 40 years and the clamp is also there. I think Jaguar changed the fixing some thousand vehicles later (mine is no. 1570). In the parts catalogue there are also 2 different brackets, one is definitively for the boss you mention. ...

Hello forum colleagues, how (and where) is the tube for the engine oil dipstick fixed to the engine?? On some Pictures of engines I saw a clamp beside the carburetter flange at the inlet manifold. But mine has no threat for a screw :seeingstars: Mine is completely loose and only held a little bit by...
