More new parts being produced by Richard Smith:

C11820/7 Palnut. This is the locknut securing the nut holding the steering wheel to the steering column. Fits all E Types and is most important from a safety point of view. Not been available for a long time and is either missing or ineffective through wear on most cars.
Image

Richard has also made made part BD13642/5 which is the special chrome screw attaching the sunvisors to all FHC and 2+2 cars. It also attaches the interior mirror on all Series 1. The screw is pointed and has the correct slotted raised counter sunk head.

As usual you can order these directly from Richard:

Just received this:

"Hi David/Angus,

I hope you are both well? I wanted to let you know that after our visit together at the factory where we discussed heated and antenna screens we have had a look into wiring both into the same screen after some requests from your forum members. I'm glad to say that we are now able to offer a screen for both FHC/DHC with both wired. So far we ran only the DHC parts through (my code HT0120 CLHA).

Also regarding the Classic show, well be there on Stand 345 in Hall 5 if your there please pop over and say hello, we'll have the E-Type frame set up with our glasses on it and one of these screens to take a look at.

Thanks

From Richard Smith:

"Please see photo of new item I have - part number BD15886/5, the 5/8” hose clamp. I’ve made them exactly as original with the correct 5/8” stamping.Cheers Richard."
Image

Contact Richard directly if you need these.

A word of warning - check your hose diameter as these will only tighten up on 5/8" (15.88mm) OD hoses. Most replacements are 15mm so you could get leaks!

Butlers number plate light chrome bezels are now available:

"Hi Guys.

Just like to say I manufacture these Butlers Chrome surrounds. They are certainly not made in China. They are made by hand so they are the same as the original items. As with all parts I am manufacturing (all of the etype hardtop chrome trims, reproduction hardtops, etc) the aim is to manufacture high quality parts that are not available. A huge amount of development has gone into getting these parts 100% correct.

If they were made in China then the price would be far less........... but so would the quality.

Tim"


Image

£300 + £15 p&p from Tim Goldthorp at Classic Quality (Parts) Limited of Ludlow http://www.classicquality.co.uk/

They were fitted to approximately the first 1,250 cars (Oct/Nov 1961) and everything we know about them can be found here: viewtopic.php?p=35522#p35522

SNGB sell the complete number plate assembly (not marked Butlers or Lucas) for £25 each if you need them to complete a set of Butlers lights.

Marek has been in touch to say he is now producing LED reverse lights:

"It consists of a pcb with 200 high brightness LEDs. The pattern is circular and follows the circular pattern of the lens housing."
Image
Image
Image
Image

Not only will it work as a very bright reverse light but it also houses red LED's which means it can be used as a third brake light. Simply connect the third wire to your brake light circuit. You can also add the option to use it as a high intensity 'fog' light with the addition of a switch and a length of wire. I hope to be doing a full test shortly and will post a review.

If you are interested please PM MarekH for price and availability.

Cheers Richard.

Angus has decided to address the problem all 6 cylinder owners face with oil dripping from the hose connecting the sump to the oil cleaner. The issue has always been that the outlets on these parts are of different diameters yet the the hose #C15949 is linear with the same diameter along its length - so tight on one end loose on the other! And no matter how much you tighten up the clips there always seems to be a leak. The solution is to have a tapered hose, in this case manufactured from cotton reinforced silicone:

Image

Angus reports that after fitting one to his car he has not had even a single drip of oil from either pipe after 1,200 miles of high speed motoring! They are available from Moss Jaguar at £22 each including VAT, UK post and packing.

Indeed although I do like the less bling approach Angus has taken, using cotton wrapped matt silicone rather than the glossy stuff that seems to be favoured by rice-rocket owners.

Simon Wood (288gto) has just sent me this:

Steering housing seal retainer #BD19710
Image
"Just a quick message to say that disappointed with vendor attempts at reproducing this part I had tooling made that hopefully gives a better pressing. I've also had the part made from titanium which closer resembles the cadmium plating rather than the shiny bright zinc of the reproduction ones. I know this part is barely seen but others might be interested. For reference, mine on the left, original middle and repro on the right.

Regards Simon"

PM Simon for more information.
