Re: Rust Repair

I see, Cornelis, it is all starting to make sense now. I'm sure the project will be a success, with you at the helm.

Re: Rust Repair

Thanks Cornelis. I really would like to see how you will manage the side windows, seeing the discrepancy between the roof of the coupe and the door openings of the cabriolet. It will be a challenge for sure. Keep me posted please.

Re: Rust Repair

Hi Cornelis, thanks for sharing the pictures. Do you intend to modify the sides of the cabriolet to look like a coupe? Coincidentally, I have seen a Series II coupe that was converted to a cabriolet.

Re: 330 GT Emergency Brake Pads

Hi Ed, is this the style you are talking about? I've seen this on late 50's, early 60's Jaguars.

Re: Restoration of Fiamm Roadmaster compressor

If the pin is an integral part of the casting you can only cut it off to free the plastic. You may be able to carefully heat the top and the plastic to see if you can slip it off without damaging it. Then after the top is painted, heat the casting without damaging the paint, then preheat the plastic...

Re: 330GTC Electrical Question

Get a read read between the fuel pump terminal and the negative terminal of the battery, see if you still get 10 volts.

Hello Suzie, the Series II (outside plug motor) car's mirror is in Kerry's picture. The Series I (inside plug) car's mirror is like this.

Re: 330 door mirrors

Here's one I saw on an Aurelia that was done very nicely. Unfortunately, I wasn't able talk to the owner so I could see how it was made.

Re: Rear gearbox shaft seal

Chris, once you get the prop-shaft out of the way, you can remove the large castle nut and then the flange will pull out. The seal can then be replaced. It seems to me you may not need to undo the prop-shaft a the axle end, but Tom can cofirm this.

Re: 330GT Front suspension

The intended way I mentioned above is certainly the most elegant way, but I have to say, it didn't work for me. I put the corner on a jack stand, like in the first picture. Then I loosened the large nut at the top just a turn or so. A couple of dull blows to the upper pivot, along with the help of t...

Re: 330GT Front suspension

Keith, theoretically, you should be able to lift the car's weight with a jack from the round plate at the bottom of the spring cup, then remove the circlip that is retaining the round plate. Then you put a jack-stand under the car an lower the jack and the plate and the spring slide out from the bot...
