Re: My new Interceptor - '72 Mk 111, 133-5597

Hi Rocky I did my front spring removal the same way only using different length bolts. You say there is fluid coming out of the bellows. This is not a problem with the bellows but unfortunately the rack and pinion is leaking. The bellows are just a dust seal. When you put the springs bank in make su...

Re: Two Jensen Mk IIIs meet today in Prescott, AZ

Looks like a PO also changed to a more modern master cylinder. However that cylinder is for a disc/drum set up car originally. May not work too well on a four wheel disc car like these. :)

Re: Two Jensen Mk IIIs meet today in Prescott, AZ

Tony's car's engine compartment is exactly like mine. Most likely it has the square flange carb mounting and came with a Holly carb originally. These are the pre smog high performance engines that actually make some horsepower. One thing I would suggest Tony should do is replace that upper flex hose...

Re: 1972 Int. MKIII, 133/5722 For Sale on Ebay

Congrats on your new Jensen! That's one of the nicest I have seen available for a reasonable price. The master cylinder has been changed to a more modern one. The wood console is original to that car and the seats are the original leather too. One thing I would do right away is to put a battery hold...

Re: Not Jensen tech advise

So it is already turning 3K in 5th gear? Will it accelerate to a faster speed in 4th gear? If not you are out of motor! :)

While I have been racing slot cars almost my whole life (69 years) I have very little experience with the plastic sets from back then or the current ones.

Re: Series 2 — Perfect Rust Free Body and other oarts

I know you have many Jensens. Why not restore this rust free shell with the parts from a rust bucket? :)

My car is the same colors. Every show I get people that say they love the brown. Pretty sure the long cranking before the engine started is most likely the operator not pumping the gas! :)

Re: Keeping Busy Whilst Self Isolating

I have been working on cars both professionally and as a hobby since the '60's. Here in The States copper is never used as brake lines. Steel is very easy to shape and flare with the proper tools. On our garage kept cars the new steel lines will last a long time. That being said I respect your knowl...

Re: 1973 MK3 Interceptor Barn Find Value???

From those pictures that car looks better than probably 90% of the cars out there. Definitely all the original parts and looks like 12,000 mikes for sure. I do not see any rust issues anywhere. Interior looks new under the dust. That is a car that stays the way it is. Do not restore it. It's only or...
