Re: Diary of a 1974 Interceptor Mk III

IMG_1047 Compressed.jpg Several of us in the club attended the Bay to Birdwood Classis run last month, and the Interceptor was running beautifully. While I was a little ho-hum initially about big brake kit with the 6 pot calipers, things really got better once I put some kilometres on the car and e...

Re: My Mk111 Restoration - 136/8620(TBY232L)

Hi Andy, I had the car out on the Bay to Birdwood Classic car cruise last weekend, and lo and behold I caught up with the guy who redesigned and re manufactured my springs 2 years ago (my old set needed resetting for what would have been the 4th time, and when I saw a broken leaf I just decided to b...

Re: My Mk111 Restoration - 136/8620(TBY232L)

Hi Andy, With regard to the rear springs, see if your suppliers will cut you some slack in fixing this issue for a few months. While I agree it looks too high, it may pay to get the car closer to completion and getting all of the weight on the back end (e.g. fitting the tailgate, petrol tank with a ...

Re: My Mk111 Restoration - 136/8620(TBY232L)

Hi GaryC There seems to be some differing opinion on the correct tyre width so i have gone with 205 as that is what was fitted at factory. The team are hoping to get Toby sitting on the new rims for the first time next week which will be another box ticked. We currently have an issue with fitting t...

Re: FFbumper / SP timing chain?

Zac

70-72 440-6 packs used the 3 bolt camshaft, so your guess is correct.

Cheers,

Re: Sir Roger. 1927-2017

Hi everyone, My son (a true James Bond affecionando) is studying in Bologna this year, and was devastated when the news broke (he had a secret wish to be able to meet all of the Bond actors), and was even more surprised at the reaction over there in Italy. That same night, RAI1 played The Persuaders...

Re: how long do people own jensens?

This is kinda scary. I was taking about respraying a car last year with an owner, and my spray painter friend was asked if he would guarantee the work. His reply "Sure, but only if I strip the car back to bare metal would I guarantee the work." After more questioning, he turned to me and s...

Hi Frank, Somewhat off topic, but there was a bespoke tie manufacturer in Bellagio (Italy) who made a beautiful tie when Alfa Romeo turned 100 several years ago (http://www.azaleabellagio.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;). I was lucky enough to buy one several years ago,...

Hi Mark, Well, I may as well post my research here for you and everyone else to see (nothing like an open forum to freely share information). Here's a response from the Glasurit team in Australia that I recently received: Hello Dino, I have accessed the global colour database without success in loca...

Re: New Build from the States

Hi Mark, Oh, yes - that rear window treatment to both the roof line and body is SO much nicer - how on Earth did you get it to look so "right" - did you end up cutting and/or modifying the glass in any way? Joe - for the front brakes, I've posted this before, but I think that the Fosseway ...

Kenny, Yup, I'm diseased with Aspergers, and I reckon it's my Mum's cat that gave it to me, crazy feline just can't keep still. Anyway, say a prayer for me when you're next in church, and are ya coming down to Adelaide for the club gathering in 2017? The reason I'm asking is not to steal your trophy...
