Exhaust heat shields under the floors?

Just reviving an old thread as it's all I can find on the subject. I have some 1.5mm alloy plate that I was going to fit to the chassis seat mounts/cross-members before the Reliant mating ritual. I have made up brackets so as to move the XJS seats further back, now I need something more substantial ...

Front bumper spoiler?

Refurbed and strengthened with alloy channel by the PO (I'll be mindful of kerbs), just giving it some final filling; Justin, Yours is the early-type Se6 bumper, which has a full-width spoiler bottom edge, but is the same depth as the later Se6a type in the OP's photo. The Se6a type Has the outer c...

Scimitar Axle Rebuild and LSD Upgrade

First job is to remove the hubs, puller I made up for the 541: CIMG0175.JPG Easiest option on the CV8 was to remove the caliper mount, one bolt has to be cut off, then took H/S and hub to large press.....one hub took 30 tons to shift. Diff came out no problem, all I wanted to do was replace outer be...

Oil pressure/relief valve

Since my last post I have benn beavering away doing some messy oil pump testing and have reached a milestone: problem solved! With the Burton pump installed I started changing the components that make up the PRV and by bringing up the oil pressure with a drill each time (about 8 or 9) I discovered t...

Banish the Prince of Darkness

one switch at a time:

Brake light switch alternative, bin that plastic switch that's prone to melting.

BMW 3 series brake light switch with M12 extra fine thread, SS nut turned down to replicate the original, hope there's enough for it to fit.

Oil pressure/relief valve

Had the engine running fine on the original pump with good pressure, until I set the idle and then it was only 14psi Wasn't that at too low rpm?? Did you ever try that oil pump at 850rpm?? My memory is not what it used to be but 14psi was I think at 650-700rpm, never tried it at a higher idle but I...

Oil pressure/relief valve

hot tickover is dependant upon the state of the engine but if I only had 55psi cold (and evrything else was okay) I'd add a washer under the spring. I'm just happy that the RV is kicking in at all! Got two readings with original RV, first was 77.5 and it wasn't till I'd done all my testing that I t...

Have you got the correct bearing's fitted,

Built a CVH years ago oil pressure was shocking.
Wrong size bearings supplied.

Oil pressure/relief valve

PRV should be 75psi and that's set by the spring (assuming everything else is serviceable) so 82.5 is too high, "barely getting 70 psi" is about right if that's at idle. Couldn't tell you what the revs were, certainly not idle as I had the drill up to the last! I am thinking the original could be a...

Oil pressure/relief valve

I'm not adverse to getting wet, all too common in this part of the world, but it's not usually oil. I have been conducting my own research on the Burton oil pump. I have tried numerous (about 6!) variations of RV parts from my original (Birhal?) pump and parts from the Burton pump, and the most sati...
