I have an October 1969 E Type Series 2 2+2 automatic which we have owned since 1976 and to “celebrate” its 50th birthday I decided to blow the pension on a very expensive refurb. To reduce costs I elected to do a lot of work myself, IRS rebuilt, all engine ancillaries rebuilt, front suspension rebuilt, and internals, new glass and wiring etc. I have done myself. The bodywork and paintwork and engine rebuild has been completed by specialists and all this has cleared my bank account quite efficiently! I hope to get everything finished before next years 60th celebrations since we have taken the car to various 30th, 40th. And 50th events.

My current problem is part number C25804 - the short accelerator control rod that links the lever on the front slave shaft with the kick down relay shaft. my restorer sadly has mislaid my original part. I have fabricated what looks to be a suitable replacement but I have had to guess at the length. Ideally I would hope someone in the forum with an auto might be able to measure theirs to confirm the length??

Hi! Can't help you I'm afraid, but welcome to the forum.
I'm a bit confused though - the site suggests you've been a member for over a year? Just browsing I guess!

I couldn’t remember my password and I had changed email providers so couldn’t get a new password issued, I thought, but turns out I had logged my new address just didn’t remember I had done it - getting old like the E Type!!
