Re: How to remove a Britax sliding roof cover ?

Not sure if your sliding roof is constructed like mine; my one has slats that fit into the side runners. My roof came off almost entirely by accident when I tried to close it while driving at about 40mph. I pulled it slightly on one side so it was skewed, then the wind caught it and lifted it out of...

Re: Oil pressure gauge

Hi and welcome to the forum. As said above, the problem is quite likely the sender. I had one that just read zero all of a sudden, and another that gave false low readings and nearly got me to do an engine re-build. i fitted the SNG mechanical guage and now I can rely on the readings, which are alwa...

Re: rear hubs clicking

On really tight hard cornering on a hill climb, I noticed a loud clicking from the back. Is that my hubs clicking as described in above posts? I don't get it in normal driving, so can I ignore it?

Re: Can I fix a leaking radiator with araldite?

I've used that on a boat to stop leaks. works well. Make sure you use disposable gloves, its a bxxxxxx to get off your skin. Sticks to anything though. Have to use it quite quickly once you've rubbed the two parts together.

Re: 1961 or 1962?

My car was built in 1969 but not registered until 1970. It existed as a car in 1969, so I describe my car as a '69.
The heritage certificate says '69.

Re: 123-Tune+ static timing

That's right, but I think when you were first putting it in, you go to TDC then rotate to get Green Any idea how it knows when it's on TDC? I don't think it does. I think that "Green" is just the point where it starts the firing procedure from, and you set the timing for that position first. So you...

Re: 123-Tune+ static timing

That's right, but I think when you were first putting it in, you go to TDC then rotate to get Green, then go to 10 static. Might be wrong, but the point I was making is that the 123 being discussed is a 123 tune which is a different animal. Not sure that the tune has a "go to green" light.

Re: 123-Tune+ static timing

Garry, I think your 123 might be like mine - I also go to TDC and turn until the green light comes on. My 123 system has the selectable curves and it sounds like yours is the same. However, the post refers to a 123 tune version which is different.

Re: Possible 'new' owner with questions

If like me you are lacking in technical knowledge, take an expert to view with you, even if it costs a few dollars. I did, and it saved me a fortune in the long run. Contact the Jag Lovers forum; there are probably people on there who are prepared to give up a day to view with you.

That's a first

Run out in the E, nice country lanes, but bit of the M3 just before home. A brand new Mclaren came alongside, hovered, gave a big thumbs up then shot off. Probably could have got half a dozen Es for the cost of his car.

On a serious note, I know some members on here have, or are involved with, XK's, so why not have an XK section on the forum? Obviously, many things about the E type engine refer to the Xk as well, so all relevant
