Re: Silicone/Braided water hoses

Most of the hoses are the same Mk1 and Mk2, the only ones I can think of that are different are the heater hoses (Mk1 ones are much longer) and the bottom radiator hose if you have power steering (would be simple enough to just cut the middle section out and replace with the steel bit if you have po...

Re: 2000 for sale carand classic

There's a lot of nice cars around, but not so many bargains as a few years ago. It seems values are definitely rising. I think that Cactus one with the white wall tyres has been around for a while and it looks a nice enough car, although I'm suspicious of the "totally original" and "perfect shut lin...

Re: Hazard switch location and bezel

With a pre-face-lift car, my suggestion would be remove the dash dimmer (just link it out, the dash is dim enough on full power!) and enlarge and re-use the hole for the hazard switch. The hazard switch position on a face-lift car is in the middle below the warning light cluster, which albeit nicely...

Re: Spin-on oil filters in Oz

I've got a UFI oil filter, filter code 23.138.00, which is an equivalent to the Manner W723/3 etc. Obviously I'm not in Australia, but it's another part number to try. Looking at the list of what it's supposed to fit it seems to be mostly tractors and plant fitted with Perkins diesels.

Have you tried Andy Harrison? Suspect he'll have a used one.

MK engines are apparently Australian AMI built 1973 (before they were available in the UK) 2500 TC.

Re: Interior Mirror Head

A bit of Googling seems to suggest that early (75-88) Jaguar XJS also used 632088, (which is interestingly where my front seats originated from).

Re: Removing clocks mk1 - How to remove feel, charge and temp

Like everything on a Mk1 dash board, they are fixed from behind, so it's a little awkward especially if you don't know what you are feeling for. Three knurled nuts on studs attached to the back of the speedo and temp/fuel/amps with little metal brackets that pull them into the dash.

Re: MK1 Heater Control Cables

I think they're basically made from piano wire so should be easy enough to make if you've got the old bent ones as a pattern. Measure the gauge and try model aeroplane shops or the internet.

Re: Spotted near Dorchester

There is a Honeysuckle 2500S that I think lives near Wareham (at least I've seen in and around Wareham a couple of times). Belongs to a club member and attends Nationals (stickers in window from recent years) but I don't think I've met the owner.
