Re: Rusty Custard

Not much done since lockdown, however with the car 82 miles from home it’s not really surprising. However my RBRR colleague Martin has fitted the LED boot lights (because you only need to find things when it’s dark), drained and refilled the O/D gearbox, changed O/D filter. Fitted appropriate speedo...

Re: Why no love for autos?

There’s a lot of comment on the Stag Owners Club forum about an update to the BW35 or BW65 three speed auto gearbox with a later three speed and overdrive ZF box from a later Jaguar.

Maybe a bit far for you (Bedford), I have used T&L Engineering in the past for reconditioning cylinder heads and inserting hardened valve seats. Very good service very knowledgeable.

Re: Rusty Custard

Ah well there you are then Charles! If it’s not possible to source a Mk2 Stag wiper switch, it could be possible to add a latching relay to trigger the intermittent wipe functions and use the standard (sic) Big Saloon switch, one flick to latch the relay and trigger the intermittent relay and a seco...

Re: Rusty Custard

There is no intermittent wiper option, apart from the pull the lever towards you for a single wipe. Never seen a Stag with the intermittent wipe option as standard either! The switches are the same.

Re: Rusty Custard

I John - yes the dash does look good doesn’t it? We are well pleased.

I managed to get a top cowl almost immediately after I posted. The “sorted” comment was a later update, but thanks for the offer.
