Re: Diff bolt sizes

Hi Kev, Actually I was referring to both diff casing and the support steels. Not sure whether a standard Ali Jag diff casing exists otherwise it the need to go down the Cosworth route. I appreciate that any of the steel support angle would need to be a fair bit thinker section to take the strain but...

Re: Diff bolt sizes

Kev, out of interest would he be looking at making the Jag rear have a diet and lose some excess weight. Ali diff housing or changing any other parts.
e.g Hawks support Steel is rather strong and heavy.
Having a Rover engine in my Hawk means it’s the rear that’s the heavier half.

Re: Tripo headlights

My brief investigation on which headlights were fitted revealed that all Cobras were originally fitted with sealed beam units. Needless to say many owners wanted to go over to halogen to get the better light. The P700 and PL700 units were fitted to cars like Jaguars and were chosen as being good for...

Re: Winter projects

Stuart, just a thought.
Could you create an adapter that fits into the tank breather connection that would allow the returned full to go in and still provide an upwards take off for the tank vent.

Re: Halibrand Tool

I normally use a copper mallet. Heavy one to get them off and a lighter weight one to tighten up to avoid over tightening. Having just taken up the slack on the spinner it’s important that the wheel is touching the ground when you tighten properly to avoid the full the force going into the wheel bea...

Re: Statutory plate

I think I must have benefitted from the newness of SVA testing as I didn’t do any particular checking or research into the finer points. I assumed that Gerry had designed the car correctly for passing the SVA e.g. seat belt supports etc. Dashboard protrusions didn’t apply but I did know that I had t...

Re: Statutory plate

Clive, did those axle design weights come from Gerry?
You might have a Jag rear suspension but not Jaguar rated springs.
Just hunted out my MAC cert from the SVA and it shows 550/ 650 kgs but then as advised it was the tester that conjured up the weights needed to get my SVA.

Re: Statutory plate

When I had my SVA the tester advised me that I had made a mistake because I hadn’t added in 75kgs each for driver and passenger.
I obtained my axle weights by using a local weighbridge.
