  1. Hi..I have just replaced the speedo cable on my 1971 series 3 type ..V12, the original cable was not broken! but the speedo had stopped working!... when changing the cable i noted that the right angle drive going into the transmission was quite loose at the joint.... Q Is this normal? Q has anyone had the same issue?.... What other reason could my speedo of just stopped working? thanks
  2. Hi I have a 1971 V12 Series 3 E type and am currently rebuilding the rear brakes, I have the suspension axle unit removed and noticed a small oil leak from the prop drive flange, looking at the "book" it tells me that to replace the oil seal I have to remove the whole axle/diff and dismantle completely!!! As i only want to replace the oil seal on the drive flange do I need to do this???? can i just replace the collapsible sleeve and oil seal and tighten it back up???? the oils seals on the drive shafts are good and not leaking, I don't want to take the diff apart for just this leak help!!
  3. Just found that the near side front jacking point on my 1971 series 3 V12 2+2 FHC has started to collapse.... need advice on repair...what panels to buy etc. anyone got a decent diagram of this area of the car??
  4. does anyone know which is the correct length of cable for a 1971 series 3 2+2 etype??? sng seem to suggest 39" and 48" are both suitable.....thoughts please..
  5. looking for a cover for my rear door lock, i can buy a new set of 3... inc hinge covers but they are black! and i only need the lock cover ...ideally in tan/Biscuit ... if anyone has a spare i would be interested.....many thanks
  6. I have just started the V12 up after 6 months...run up to heat and runs nicely except a little rough idle, i noticed an open pipe on the carb balancing pipe i put my finger over it and the car ran smooth with a few more revs, looking down i see the charcoal canister and another open pipe.... looking at the manual these two open ends should have a connecting pipe.... my question is... where can i get a replacement charcoal canister to go inside???
  7. I am after some clarification here, I have a series 3 V12 2+2 FHC and want to replace the rear discs and calipers etc... i have been told i can do this in situ by dropping down the rear wheels/suspension. However having looked at a few youtube videos of the procedure...everyone has the whole rear suspension cage unit removed from the car!!! Can anyone who has done this give me a definitive answer on if it can easily be done without removing the whole rear IRS unit? cheers
  8. Thanks Joe... these are listed for series 1&2 I have contacted them to check they are the same for my series 3 ... regards Adrian
  9. Sorry that was scparts cost....sng Barrett don't have rubber stripsbut. Channels more realistic cost....think I'll start manufacturing these expensive parts myself!!!
  10. Hi Yes that's them, cheapest I can see is £134 for one rail ...crazy Cheers
  11. Nope taken a look through their catalogue and no parts listed! so back to the drawing board...
  12. Thanks Joe I will take a look at them
  13. Does any one have or know where i can get one replacement luggage rail and rubber for my series 3 2+2 FHC i have found some at sc parts but they seem crazy expensive for 1 rail and rubber i have to buy the whole set at huge expense, any help would be appreciated. Happy New Year to all.
  14. I have seen a couple of tools one from Germany that is way over engineered and very expensive! and another made somewhere in the uk but i can't find details of this more sensibly priced item
