Re: Size of SU idle mixture screw

Thanks. I will try the instrument nuts. I did email Burlen but no reply yet. What an odd size screw but as Peter said, it is old technology.

Size of SU idle mixture screw

Hello. Does anyone know the size/pitch of the idle mixture (jet adjusting) screw on SU carbs. It appears to be a #6 but has an unusual thread count and I don't know if it's SAE or BSW. Burlen part number is WZX 981. Thanks.

Re: Using Twin Lambda sensors - anyone else tried this ?

Yes, I just installed the Innovate dual lambda kit in my series 1 FHC. http://i1106.photobucket.com/albums/h376/Annivar/Innovate.jpg This includes 2 O2 sensors and a dual gauge that can be toggled to display in A/F ratio or lambda. The impetus for this was that I noticed last summer that when I thou...

Early E-type console aluminum pattern

Attached are 2 pictures of my gauntlet and console. Is this the original aluminum used on the early E-types or just a base for the covering? Thanks.

FHC rear view mirror attachment

Looking for help on how to attach the triangular rear view mirror base to the car. The parts book calls for 3 machine screws. I have 3 holes in the front headliner trim piece and another 3 holes in the body above the windshield opening but no captive nuts or a plate to bolt to. Thanks.

I shortened and rewelded the shaft yesterday. It now fits nicely. I just measured it and it came out to 9 9/16", so pretty close to the original.

As I recall, I got the shaft from the same guy I bought the manifold from. The arms do look right so I'll probably just shorten it to the correct length. Thanks.

Should there be a recess in the firewall for the bushing? If so, I don't have one. My bushing flange mounts flush to the firewall and the bushing sticks out about 2.5cm. Thanks.

Series 1 vs. series 2 seat back frames

Apart from the headrest bracket, does anyone know if there is a difference between the series1 4.2 and series 2 seat back frames? I'm asking because I have series 2 seats (ratcheting recline and headrest pockets) and I plan to recover them. I would prefer to use series 1 covers ( my car is series 1)...

More pictures for the experts. First is the bulkhead from the front and second is the right under dash showing the heater door opening. The inner edge is about 20 cms from the midline. Same for the left opening. I assume that if this car was equiped with air conditioning the large opening to the rig...

Thanks for your responses. The large holes being for factory A/C makes sense. Attached is another photo from the rear showing the light openings (series 1 or 1 1/2). If I understand it correctly, air conditioning was rare before 1966. This car is supposed to be early to mid sixties. It has a 4.2l en...

Firewall holes

I recently purchased a series 1 E-Type. It was sold to me as a 1964 but the chassis number dates it to 1962. As is often the case it has changed hands several times, is partially disassembled and several pieces are missing including the ID plate. Attached is a photo of the firewall with 4 holes mark...
