Clip, Securing Rubber Seal

The rubber seals between the bumpers and front bonnet were secured with metal clips BD10313 and they are usually missing even on restored cars:

SNGB sell the clips, two per bumper.

Spare Parts Bulletins

Like the Service Bulletins the parts division had notification of changes to the parts used so spares would match or confirmed an upgraded part would fit. The interesting thing to me is the change of parts would occur at any point in manufacturing as improvements were made and new parts available. In the late 1960s and on more restrictive regulations moved most changes to model years. This light blue two ring binder held thin paper notices for the 1950s and 1960s. Covering both sedans and sports cars (race cars included).

I know it's a big ask Geoff but could you scan it and get it uploaded to the Knowledge Base?

I've been chasing these for years on EBay etc without success.

Nut C4202/2

The C4202/2 is a 5/16" UNF nut used specifically for:

- securing inlet manifold to cylinder head - x 18
- securing carburettors to inlet manifold - x 12 (although the SPC says 24 are required)
- securing water outlet elbow to outlet pipe - x 2
- securing base assembly for air intake to carburettors - x 6

What makes these nuts interesting is that the the finish on the nut is chrome (a single layer of chrome without polishing and not overly shiny) produced by barrel plating the raw steel product. They were not cadmium plated. The 'P' stamps designate the tensile strength. It seems these chrome plated nuts were carried forward from the XK140 and XK150 engines and probably chosen to match the polished cam covers and SU suction chambers for a bit more 'eye candy'. They are not used elsewhere on the car when 5/8" UNF is called for and continued to be used on the S1 4.2 engines.

Barrel Plating
As the name implies, barrel plating entails placing the parts inside a barrel typically constructed of plastic. The barrel contains centre bars that conduct the electrical current and rotates slowly while immersed in the electrolytic plating solution. This causes the parts to tumble or “cascade” which provides an even, uniform coating application. Typical barrel plating applications include enhancing corrosion protection, increasing aesthetic appeal and producing an engineering finish that protects the parts against wear and tear.

Barrel plating offers a cost-effective means of plating a high volume of small, durable parts such as stampings and fasteners. It also works well for plating parts of various shapes and sizes. Barrel plating requires a smaller investment in equipment and is less labour-intensive than rack plating, which ultimately results in a lower process cost to the customer. On the downside, most barrel plating techniques require a low electrical current, which can increase the time that the parts are exposed to the plating solution.

Thanks to Tadek for the photos.
