Re: Clock

I believe the change from LR50 driven clock to +12 volt driven clock was around October 1969.
That would make sense as mine is a Nov 69 car and it has the external power. One day I'll work out how to adjust it properly!

Re: new member / dealer and car opinions please

That S 2 roadster looks quite nice - price seems reasonable * if * the bodywork is in good nick . For ex US cars , you need to factor in the cost of : triple Su conversion , diff. ratio change ( 3.54 to 3.07 ) and RHD conversion . That might be as much as £ 15 k ( done by specialist ) . Then you ne...

Re: HELM Jaguar E Type 300hp Restomod - Review

Talking of bearded scruffs, I keep telling Angus he needs his own channel. He'd make far more from that than the actual restorations. :lol:


Now that's a channel that would need to come with an age restriction. We don't want him scaring younger viewers :bigrin:

Re: Brexit Bonus!

Sadly politics are heavily involved right now. It's clear we were quick off the mark with authorising vaccines and sad that various EU countries are making erroneous comments and political plays, when we should all be concentrating on vaccinating our citizens. Sad news tonight that Captain Tom is in...

Re: Intermittent rev counter

Thanks for all the comments. It's too cold to drive right now so when I next go out I'll check the brake lights if it stops again. Otherwise I suspect it's internal in the tacho but that's beyond my skill set so I'll just wait and see what develops.

Intermittent rev counter

Morning My rev counter sometimes stops working. I can be happily driving along, look down and it's at zero. I've seen it happen four times now over a period of months, but the weird thing is that if I turn off the engine and re-start it works. Anyone got any idea what could cause it? Nothing else is...

They could also do with a bit more time in school learning how to spell, perhaps they could do that in Frankfurd, Germany?

A few years ago now our local beauty salon/hairdresser hurriedly changed its name. It had been known up until that point as "ISIS".
It's like the labrador dog in Downtown Abbey was called that. They resisted calls to rename it.

I second Geoff's comment. I fitted LED's from Gil and went from unreadable dash to clear bright instruments.

Hi Simon Another point is that the forum is worldwide.

Re: Driveline clunk

I don't know if this could be the problem, but I had a sort of clonking sound on the rear of mine. Angus had a look and eventually I think he tracked it down to a slight wear in the splines, giving some play. I can't remember the exact details, maybe Angus can fill in the missing bits. IIRC he put s...

Re: General Handling S2

Thanks to everyone for their comments. Firstly let me put it in context, I am not a boy racer! I drive quickly but when I talk about 30mph this is on a sizeable roundabout where I am not attempting to drift it :wow: I was out in the car yesterday and, even allowing for the fact it's a fifty year old...
