Re: Glas tint S1 FHC

I can't help you on the colour, check the SPC, however I can tell you that if you order glass from Pilkington you can order it without logo and then sandblast the logo using a stencil.

I used to make the stencils, however I no longer have the access to the laser printer :-(.

Re: Fuel pipe alternative

Careful which pipe you buy, as some stretch when filled with fuel.
They stretch to a degree, and then stop stretching...

Re: Correct length of the battery cables?

Thanks all for the advice! Does not get me close the exact dimensions, but the thought of having them long enough is very valid :-)

Re: oil pressure sender calibration widget

Hi Mike,

Would it also be able to use another good sender, but calibrated to a different scale (I think I have some senders from Maserati Ghibli)?

one for me please :-)

Re: early S1 top Radiator hose availability

I have this type of hose from Bill Tracy for my xk120 - I should probably add that it's rather hard, and would not expand like (probably) intended.
So, the cap might actually be from the later models...

No affiliation, but for those interested, the copy of the original Top Radiator Hose with Stocking Finish is available from old Bill Tracy stocks here: https://www.memotronics.com/top-radiator-hose-stocking-finish-for-jaguar-xk150/ David Jones mentioned it here: https://forum.etypeuk.com/viewtopic.p...

Re: S1 Halfshaft removal without removing lower wish bone fulcrum shaft - is it possible?

Uff.... Thanks Steve - yes, it's my newly build setup.

I would like to make sure as well that the endfloat is correct as well - do you have any trick to mount the gauge? I do not have the mount that the service manual shows.

S1 Halfshaft removal without removing lower wish bone fulcrum shaft - is it possible?

I have unfortunately not aligned the halfshaft with the holes in the hub for the split pin... :oops: I am wondering if it's possible to remove the halfshaft without removing the lower wish bone outer fulcrum shaft. I need to rotate the hub so that the holes for the split pin align. Stupid me!! Tadek...

Re: Water Pump seal installation

Hi, I was wondering if you actually read my initial post? I have even provided the manufacturer of this seal. However, I would guess it's easiest to get it from SNG - they sell the CYCLAM seals. They just do not provide the instructions, but if you actually read what I wrote, and take a look at the ...

Re: Rear lights not mating

Are you sure these are from your car? OTS and FHC are different.

Have they been plated? the platers could have changed their shape.

Or the bodywork might have been too 'extensive'

Re: 5 1/2" rims with 185R15 tires?

I unbolted all of them. It took me about 1.5h, however none of them were rusted, so I have 72 spares :-). I had no special wrenches though. I was acutally surprised how tensioned they are/were. Dismantling them is easy. Putting them back is challenging and I am not attempting to do it. I can assembl...

Re: 5 1/2" rims with 185R15 tires?

Before sending the wheels I decided to take one wheel apart. I was hoping to get the spokes as spare. My spare wheel has one spoke bent, I was hoping I could change it. Well, I have to say that it's really very difficult to change these spokes, probably imposible without loosening them. They are _ve...
