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. ...

Re: engine oil dipstick

Hi, Mine is a very early 71 and it has no threat in the induction housing. ( the boss is there) There must be a threat at the block behind the heat sheald I have a got a steel bracket with the car and the pre owner has told that a workshop has forgotten to fix it some years ago. Seems to me that I h...

engine oil dipstick

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...

Re: speedometer

Hi,

thank you for the hint.

I can't find a source for these sleeves at the Moment so I will try alternative solution.

I hope it will not shrink due to the high temperature of the bulbs

speedometer

Hi, another question just coming up. I thought that the control lamps (tank, high beam lamps, ignition) don't work. But they work perfectly, only problem is that when I put them into the speedo I can't see any light in the indicators (blue, yellow, red) Looking into the holes it seems that the color...

Re: heat shields

Hello Marek,

thanks a lot.
For me that's good news.
The carbs are out anyway and the rest of the inlet manifold I also have to take out.

Best regards

Re: S3 Stromberg Bypass Valve

Hi Dennis, you are not alone! I also found 2 of 4 floats beeing upside down. Choke cables secured with wire instead of clips. All idle screws completely screwed out and the pre owner was wondering why the car was only running on choke. All 4 carbs had different settings of the jet needles and the ne...

Re: S3 Stromberg Bypass Valve

Hi Marek, do any problems occur when they are permanently blocked? I'm also just overhauling all carbs of my 71 S3 and found that the new gaskets are slightly different from the old ones. The old, installed ones have a bypass cut away so that air can permanently go through the valve even if it's clo...

Hi, can the exhaust manifold heat shield be removed while the engine is in the car or is this impossible. At the moment I don't exactly know how to remove the spring and the rear bracket (will it fall down after the spring has been removed?). I want to clean the engine but with the heat shield in pl...

Re: Plug for the S3 in Classic Car - Buy one now!!

Hi, a cheap one was the only possibility for me to get one. It will be my last "Oldtimer" and I want to work on it for the next years. For me working on a car is like a therapy after a hard day in the Office (a kind of ZEN of repair). I have been very much aware that in the end I will spend the same...

bonnet support frame S3 1971

Hi,

can someone tell me if the part I marked in the attached pic (some kind of flap) is necessary or not?

The pre owner of my car has cut it away (don't ask me why :banghead: )

Best regards

Re: Plug for the S3 in Classic Car - Buy one now!!

That's exactly why I bought a cheap one. The good ones are already expensive.

I wanted to have one and even if it takes years to get it back into good condition I'm already sitting in it in my garage and dreaming of the day the engine will start for the first time.

If I come to the conclusion that the original loom needs to be replaced I will use a new one from Autosparks. Most of my time I try to find out what the pre o...
