Compliments !!GREAT JOB-GREAT DAY Norman
Engine is a bizzarre pieces set
I Remember, my E type engine won't start -never in more than 20 attempts- I decide then to call the boss of the local City Bus Co. ,considered the TOP of engineering
It came in the garage ask to tray to start the jaguar
ask to STOP after few seconds- put his handle in the engine bay, turn the distributor cap of 180 degree-
the engine start immediately at the following attempt-
For the electrical tests, I have find that a 12V -max 10A
with automatic fuse, source
(a simply little battery charger)
is better than the battery-no smoke -no sparks- no fuse blown - also the Lamp tester helped a lot for follow the electricity around the wires to destination
I am one of the passionate followers of your TC adventure
Hello Lynne, hello Norman,
just having added a Series III very similar to yours to my car park, the search for "voltage stabilizer" provided a hit at your site. Very, very interesting... We'll keep it in the favourites list, but a visit (if possible at all) will take some time (Chassis repairs required). The '75 trailer for the FIAT 500s (1 on the road and the "Ring", the other in the workshop to become a historic racer, one time) has just been MOT'd. Question: Would a German Boxer also be welcome?
We stayed with Lynne and Norman last June.
They are a lovely couple , and went out of their way to make us welcome, the gites are in a lovely part of France, have all you are likely to require for a stay there ( including a fully equipped workshop should anything go wrong !)
Thanks once again for all you did for us.
Happy new year
Mike & Sheila
I've really enjoyed your postings. I've restored half dozen TCs and can relate to many of your issues. I'm currently working on a 49EXU that was taken apart in 1970. Mine was in a little better condition when I got it than yours. I decided to keep it as it was in 1970 although I have replaced a lot of things(ie wiring,rubber,pistons,bearings and hoses). These came with the car when I bought it. I have a blog but you put me to shame!
Looking forward to new posts and hope your medical issues are resolved.
By the way I have yet to find a TC that runs good at 0TDC. Mine run around 10-13BTDC
