Re: Cinnamon carpet

Hi Colin
Can't help re dye treatment but the original cinnamon interior of my Nov 71 car was not two tone from what I can see in this old image.

Re: Mystery Bracket on right hand engine frame

Post #4 above - Deleted suggestion that hose from carbon cannister might anchor to frame bracket as have now found an image showing it fixed to the face of the RH footwell.

Re: Mystery Bracket on right hand engine frame

You could try contacting Craig_Balzer on jag-lovers. He is documenting the strip down and rebuild of his S3 and one image posted in https://forums.jag-lovers.com/t/craig-restores-a-series-iii-ots-part-ii/408653 seems to show the two hole version of the bracket, unfortunately after removal of what wa...

Re: Mystery Bracket on right hand engine frame

On my 72MY the bracket only has one hole and that carries a 'P'clip locating the starter cable. I have pictures of later cars under rebuild showing the two hole version but not with the holes populated. Hopefully some else can say what the second hole carries.

Re: Tuning S3

The only place I recall seeing Jaguar quoting a CO figure for the S3 E is on the underbonnet sticker of 72-74MY emission control cars. Basically adjust if found above 4.5% (with idle timing set at 10deg BTDC, vac retard and exhaust air injection disconnected). https://i.postimg.cc/gcKbgMDS/S3-Emissi...

Re: Emissions equipment

Hi Mike and welcome to the forum, The Strombergs are not original to your S2 and are almost certainly from a later XJ6. The pinched off steel pipework was part of the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) system introduced in 1973/4 so was never used on the S2 E Type. It was used on later V12 S3s but with...

Re: Air Filter Vacuum Pipes

Hi Mark

Re: Mystery window regulator part

Hi Mark A couple of images which may help. If you enlarge the first it shows what looks like a foam block (hopefully closed cell). The second suggests that it is of square section. You can scale the length from the door lock handle but it looks about 4"-5"x1"x1" overall. https://i.postimg.cc/g0hZ972...

Re: Ignition switch rubber cable shroud C26851

Sorry, I should have said only early S3s with the Britax switch used C26851, not later cars which have the WASO switch.

Re: How to check Stromberg needle adjustment

Hi Job Look at the bottom of the carb. A fixed jet/adjustable needle Stromberg type will have a blanking plug (plastic or brass) in the middle. https://i.postimg.cc/NFJVPPDc/Carb-Stromberg-fixed-jet.jpg Whereas an adjustable jet/fixed needle type will look like this. https://i.postimg.cc/pVqgTpH6/Ca...

Re: S3 Fuel Expansion Tank

Are you following the "A" and "B" nomenclature from the S3 schematic in post #23? If so then it looks as if your "C" and the "A/B with a horizontal arrow" are the wrong way round and the expansion tank won't drain back to the main tank. It doesn't matter which of the the two outboard connections on ...

Re: S3 Fuel Expansion Tank

Looks like a PO tried to simplify the vent system without understanding it first. As described, as far as I can see the expansion tank is serving no purpose at all. In addition, when the main tank is full the extended filler tube inside the tank will be covered by fuel, negating the effect of the fi...

Re: S3 Fuel Expansion Tank

So unless the filler cap has been replaced by the vented type, whenever the main tank level is above a certain level (vent/return C being the lowest of the 3 standard vents) either by fill level, parking nose down or braking there is no venting of the main tank.

Sorry not my car in the picture, just used it to illustrate the panel feature. Other forum members will be able to help you with bodywork repair techniques.

Re: S3 Fuel Expansion Tank

So whereas on an an emissions car the hose transitions to the steel pipe going to the carbon cannister before going through the grommet at the back of the boot, as shown in post#21, on a non emissions car the hose is simply poked maybe an inch or so through a grommet with a bigger hole and vents int...

Thanks Colin - that's what I thought it was, an open ended tube with two wings. I have plenty of pictures of the tube part poking out of the bottom of cars, albeit of differing lengths, but only one fuzzy image of the winged top part inside. It looks the same as that originally used in the doors to ...

Re: Rear engine (manual gearbox) mount

Thanks for that Colin, at least that feature is clear now. It's a few years since I started from the "I (think) I have all the right parts but not necessarily (definitely not) in the right order" point. I had forgotten the two plain washers for an auto note in the ROM, although the PM only shows and...
