Philip's thread of 660XYB stuff

Hi Mark,
Yes, only on top gear; the O/D inhibit switch is mounted on top of the gearbox and easily accessible by taking the tunnel off, so that's the next step - try it in 2nd/3rd/4th and hear what happens!
For info, the Mk 2 Jag gearbox with O/D is type GBN made by Moss, no synchro on 1st

Philip's thread of 660XYB stuff

Thanks Jim,
Guy - the noise started in early March, so I changed the fluids to see if this might stop it. Alas, it made no difference.

Philip's thread of 660XYB stuff

Noisy overdrive: (This is tacked onto the end of the previous thread as I don't know how to start a new topic in a project thread !) :( Anyone have experience of diagnosing problems with overdrives? I've posted a youtube video and if you listen carefully you can hear a resonance around 3 beats per s...

6a turns over, fires up and stops when key is let go

Just because you have 12v on the coil side of the ballast resistor it doesn't mean there isn't a fault (you aren't drawing any current so there's no volt drop in the circuit). If the ignition feed path has a connector with "high" resistance then it will drop the voltage and there won't be enough cur...

electric fan

Sticky relay? I assume that the fan doesn't run on after you switch off the ignition, though. If it did it would still be running (or the battery would be flat!).

So, if you still have the Book, are there photo credits? Although , even if the photographer was still with us he probably wouldn't remember why he took that shot in particular.
Guess we'll never know.

SE8 splitting overdrive from gearbox

I think Mark should have a thread all to himself !! :D Otherwise, as usual we highjack someone else's thread. I spoke to my brother in Harrogate, he's happy to pop across and collect my box of bits (now that two people can meet keeping 2m apart). Perhaps you could PM me or email bank details and tot...

Diff filler plug key size please.

I hear that wrapping the taper thread in plumbers PVC tape before screwing in helps when it comes to removal.
Don't know if it works, though, but it seems to make sense. Any plumbers out there with experience?

The photo originally appeared in a book about buses, so it appears the car was incidental to the real object of desire - the London Bus!!

We have one of those temperature probes you stick in your roast to see if it is done - put it in boiling water and it reads 96 degrees - are we all living under a depression???

Thanks Guy,

New Project!

Hi,
Welcome and I agree - I like the colour scheme too.
If you are planning on working on the car, please start a project thread - I didn't and now I can't find any of the feedback etc as it is all on various threads.
Good luck, keep us informed.
