Brake screws

Hi all,
I've received the Kit of parts to rework my Servo and master brake cylinder.
However, I want to change also the specific screws used to connect the brake fluid tubes on each assembly. They are all rusty. I dont know where can I get them.
Does anybody know this ?
Thanks for any feedback.

Not sure of the speedo I've got

Hi,

I've got a speedo with my S3 car but not sure at all if it is the good one.
There is only one blue light for the Headlamps.
The smiths part number is 6330/36.
It is maybe a part for an MK2. I dont know.
If someone have information, let me know.
Regards
Michel

An engine in a clean condition under an a S3 bonnet with the same condition for the 4 Stromberg is wonderful. But how to do that ? For the copper parts, it is easy with some muriati...

Mark, Phil many thanks for you answers. I've tried the link from you Mark. I send my request to the Florida administration. Because they have only 10 years of record, they cannot give any information for a car used until 1981. I will then try to get a better feedback with the Jaguar Heritage site. I...

Car's History

Hi, I've got a restoration project S3 for now a few month. I do not have any paper as the guy who sold me the S3 did not care of them. I just wanted to dismantle the car and sell the parts.

:D Hi every body, I'm in love with the E-type for a long time. Tis seems to be always be something I cant aford. However, I've found a S3V12 from 1973 with a good price! But with a lot of work to do! Well that's what I wanted. I've retored in the past 2 stroke Kawasaki mototcycles ( 350S2, 400 S3 ) ...
