Essex Timing

Changing the red hose for a braided one is a good bet. The red hose on mine was getting hot where it went over the back of the engine and collapsing under pressure when I pressed the peddle.

MOT exemption

What a faff. I taxed my 1977 MGB GT earlier this month because the tax was due, and yes I did tick the box where it mentions alterations to the vehicle, there is none. It's tax exempt and taxed on line as Historic so no problem, MOT was up yesterday though the fact that the car has been on this plan...

Jaguar X Type

The X-type has TWO front jacking points, one on the seam under the sills for the matching grooved jack supplied with the car, Yes you are correct there, but to say "the only way it would collapse" you are not correct. My X type was always jacked up as you say with the correct jack and used in the c...

Jaguar X Type

I had my 2001 X Type (petrol) for 5 years and enjoyed every minute of it. Unfortunately it developed weak sills and they started to collapse when jacking up the car, have a good look behind the plastic sill covers before buying. I scrapped mine last year with a catastrophic (MOT guys words) oil seal...

Windscreen rubber sealant

Hi All,
What's the name of the black sealant paste that's used on rubber seals and doesn't go hard. I've used it before but can't remember the name of it.

DOK211K

I always thought that the chassis with the correct chassis number WAS the identity of the vehicle and any renewal of a complete chassis would give a new chassis number to the vehicle. I would leave this car alone as I have enough complications in my life as it is.

Reliant scimitar gte se5a 1972 its has a new galvanised chassis
This woke me up. If he's thinking tax exempt I don't think it will be, as the chassis number would be with the old chassis not carried on to the NEW chassis. Slap my wrist if I'm wrong but I don't think I am.

The "Mighty" SE6 - New Year, New Plans

I have an early BL key and complete ignition that I used to plug into your car to start it when the ignition played up some years ago. Turned out to be the ignition switch that time. I may have a switch in the garage but not known if it's a good one or not. I seem to remember Corky supplying me an i...

Essex head gasket failed?

If the garage did a "sniff test" and the liquid in the tester did not turn green then the head gasket is more than likely OK. Not wishing to teach granny how to suck eggs but it could be that your system is not being topped up correctly. You should make sure that the heater control is set to hot whe...
