XJS mirror rebuild

Its probably the same as the "normal Scimitar" mirror - take the glass out to get to the fixing screws which hold everything together. if you break the glass chances are its easier to get a Jag glass than it is the glass out of the scimitar mirror.

SS1 Brake failure n/s front!

Trevor is right buy from other than the club traders and you will get the wrong discs no matter what they say or advertise. Your photo did not show on my pc.

SE6a rear axle clicking sound; axle float?

There should be end float in the rear axle - to have none will cause damage. You need someone who knows about the axle to check it out. I had a MOT man years ago who told me that my bearing needed replacing - he had never heard of end float and knew nothing about older cars. Earlier Aston Martins an...

Jag mirror mounts

I don't really want to change the mounting points if I can help it -found this type but don't know where they come from - this mirror was for sale in Lithuania and I have mailed them to see if they can help me.

Vented Brake Discs & Stub Axle Bearings

Something I did for slice some time ago. The SS1 bearings are not adjustable – or are they. I remember reading on the club site that someone had “bashed” the bearings apart ( might have been Alan SS1 ) and ground off part of the bearing then fitted it back together and set it up like a “normal” bear...

I thought the remember me box was forum generated and not Firefox generated.

I have checked the remember me box - several times but when I look at the Firefox saved passwords there are none. Silverstone next weekend so more to think about at the moment - our MB just passed its MOT this morning so that's not a worry.

MY user name and password no longer is remembered - is this due to the latest update of Firefox or a change of the site software. Not really a problem as I can type it in again each time but a irritation.

Jag mirror mounts

I have a pair of Jag mirrors for my MB - and will fit the "normal" mirrors to our Coupe when they have been re-cond. However the door mounts that came with the mirrors are flat and I need something more like the normal mounts to square the mirror on the door. On Ebay there are mirrors for sale from ...

Starter solenoid

The push on is from the ignition switch to energise the solenoid and the screw terminal is the connection which gives 12v to the ballast resistor/coil +ve ( effectively shorting the resistor out ). You can of course connect a relay across the ignition switch which energises when the starter is energ...

Advice for a respray SE5a

Did my Coupe with water based paint and found it very forgiving and much easier to apply than cellulose or twin pack - you still need to put lacquer on top though and I have used Max Meyer which I also find to be relatively easy to use. My previous attempts with twin pack and cellulose were shall we...
