Re: MK1 Master cylinder seal kit

Hi

The white part in the kit that came is a later check valve apparently, originals are no longer available. So I infact have the right kit. Only thing is which way round. Do the little feet on it go towards spring or other way around?

MK1 Master cylinder seal kit

My 1968 2000 has a single line brake master cylinder. I have put new seals in it today and there is no seal for the check valve in the kit. I have checked and can't find a kit with one in any where. Even on CW site the kit comes with no check valve seal. It does not look it's best and I wondered why...

Re: National 2018 update

Hi all,

Yes I agree that it was an amazing occasion and much hard work was put in to make it a brilliant event. The weather helped too, but organising these things is not easy, total credit to everyone who organised and ran the event.

Re: Heater Valve

Hi Thanks all,

I think that it was originally a LUCAS part and hence the interchangeability, just guessing, wouldn't stake my life on it or anything

Heater Valve

Sadly, after a really nice run in the warm sunshine, I found on my return that the heater valve was leaking. Does anyone know which are compatible? I have found this for about £34 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/JAGUAR-MK2-V8-XK150-TRIUMPH-2000-MK1-BRISTOL-407-408-HEATER-WATER-VALVE-SEAL/253515270002?has...

Re: Halogen conversion kits

Hi Just want to reawaken this thread. I have 55w bulbs in new non sealed bowls. They don't have a relay system. They came with those bowls in, but are not very bright. Do I need to put relays in if it is just 55w halogen bulb in the bowl, I have been reading up that you get 30% more light from them ...

Re: correct battery

Both thanks, good advice, I have a decent starter motor and with sufficient power and when warm works fine. I gave my battery a really good charge (new halfords ring charger with jump start facility), because I only had a trickle charger on it and perhaps with short journeys have not been really dep...

correct battery

People suggest either an 069 0r 096. My car is a mk1 (68) and has a dynamo. I find it doesn't turn over from cold well but will after a run, obviously when warm when it needs less cranking power. My question is that as a dynamo has less output, is there a limit to the Ah and CCA cranking power when ...
