Electrical & Instruments > Fan/blower resistor (1 reply - 3440 views)

I have a brand new heater resistor ordered from Delta some years ago and installed on my spare heater box.  I was quite surprised to ...   02-21-2006 05:16 pm

Electrical & Instruments > Gauge Tags/Tach Testing (11 replies - 12145 views)

It probably does matter which way the two white wires go.  While it seems unlikely that you could damage a tach by reversing the connections, it probably wouldn't work ...   02-19-2006 06:58 pm

Body & interior stuff > Sills - molding and paint (25 replies - 19830 views)

I used to have a 1956 Dodge pickup truck with two .30 caliber rifle bullet holes in the side of the bed.  I always thought ...   02-19-2006 03:49 pm

Body & interior stuff > GT Style Bonnet Prop (5 replies - 5487 views)

I'd be interested in seeing the photos, probably others would, as well.  If you haven't already, perhaps you could start a folder for your car ...   02-18-2006 02:42 am

Electrical & Instruments > panel light switch (10 replies - 10076 views)

Haven't tried it myself, but it looks possible.  I'd approach the repair by drilling a hole side to side through the rocker part of the switch, ...   02-17-2006 07:32 pm

Electrical & Instruments > panel light switch (10 replies - 10076 views)

Yes, that's correct.  Unfortunately, even when one does that, the dash lights are still on the dark side of dim. ...   02-17-2006 04:27 pm

Electrical & Instruments > Gauge Tags/Tach Testing (11 replies - 12145 views)

Very probably the number stickers on the backs of the gauges refer to either the person who assembled the gauge, or, more likely, the one who ...   02-16-2006 05:54 am

Engine & Transmission > Oil Leaks (3 replies - 4616 views)

I have a serious oil leak around the distributor.  I replaced the o-ring on the distributor shaft, but that didn’t seem to help.  I wondered ...   02-12-2006 11:50 pm

Body & interior stuff > Glovebox restoration (9 replies - 8703 views)

Jay, yours looks like a previous owner cobbled something together after suffering a glove box collapse of some sort.  Gary's is typical for a MkII ...   02-12-2006 12:47 am

Carburetors > Screw for vacuum switch (1 reply - 3836 views)

Electrical & Instruments > Gas Gauge Problem (5 replies - 5821 views)

Ignition > starter and selenoid connections (7 replies - 10309 views)

Bad or inoperative solenoid. Inside the thing is a copper(?) plated disk that mounts to the end of the iron shaft that moves when the solenoid is energized.  This disk ...   01-28-2006 10:28 pm

Ignition > starter and selenoid connections (7 replies - 10309 views)

Sounds like your wiring hookups to the starter solenoid are correct.  Since the starter turns when powered directly by the battery, the starter is almost ...   01-28-2006 09:07 pm

Ignition > starter and selenoid connections (7 replies - 10309 views)

If your car doesn't have the battery junction, one would need to connect the brown wires to the main battery cable terminal on the starter solenoid.  You'd ...   01-28-2006 02:58 pm

Miscellaneous > DMV says VIN 18143 doesn't exist (7 replies - 7013 views)

It's been my experience that the Calif. DMV normally has no problem with 5-digit JH VINs, though some other states do and in consequence will create ...   01-27-2006 02:18 pm

Engine & Transmission > Clutch Gaitor Availablity (6 replies - 6450 views)

Haven't tried this myself but apparently the thing will stay in place when installed the way you describe.  If not, then a more ambitious approach might ...   01-22-2006 11:19 pm

Engine & Transmission > oil pressure at highway speeds (5 replies - 5400 views)

Miscellaneous > Jensen-Healey and Katrina (5 replies - 4676 views)

Of course the car can be saved, but it's a matter of the cost in time and dollars to do that.  If either one is ...   01-17-2006 01:19 am

Carburetors > Intermittant Fuel Pump Problem (7 replies - 8968 views)

Miscellaneous > Oil pressure gauge (7 replies - 7377 views)

Assuming nothing is rusted in place, you can probably pull the gauge without removing the instrument pod.  The extra effort to pull the pod isn't all ...   01-12-2006 02:30 am

Suspension > Front Suspension Removal (14 replies - 12033 views)

John, Very nice photo essay.  Your approach was somewhat different than the one I took but obviously yours has worked for you.  And your shop looks to be well ...   01-09-2006 04:10 am

Engine & Transmission > Clutch Gaitor Availablity (6 replies - 6450 views)

The originals apparently aren't available nowadays, and AFAIK there are no replicas being made.  There are, however, alternatives: 1.  Several folks have used a cut-down Mr. Gasket rubber gearshift ...   01-06-2006 03:28 pm

Electrical & Instruments > Fritzy Tachometer (40 replies - 48107 views)

Attached is a rather poor photo of the interior of a JH tach.  Either I'm an even worse photographer than usual, or my camera isn't ...   01-06-2006 03:47 am

Suspension > REAR UPPER SUSP ARMS--2 Types??? (4 replies - 5487 views)

Norm, You can attach one photo to each message you post.  Simply have the photo at some location on your computer, click on the Browse button below ...   01-02-2006 02:52 pm

Electrical & Instruments > Lights (8 replies - 8141 views)

Since you have tail lights, probably the grounds for the rear lamp housings are (mostly?) good.  Have you tested all your bulbs and examined all the ...   01-01-2006 10:17 pm

Suspension > REAR UPPER SUSP ARMS--2 Types??? (4 replies - 5487 views)

Electrical & Instruments > Fritzy Tachometer (40 replies - 48107 views)

The British car club sites have quite a bit of information posted on Smiths tachs, and much of it is pertinent to the JH.  Here's part of ...   12-30-2005 12:32 am

Electrical & Instruments > Fan Switch & Warning Lights (1 reply - 3599 views)

Used switches appear on eBay occasionally, and I've seen a couple for sale that claimed to be new old stock.  Other than that, new original ...   12-24-2005 03:20 pm

Carburetors > Has anyone tried SUs? (4 replies - 6486 views)

No reason why SUs shouldn't work, and I've seen a photo or two with SUs on a 907 engine, but with 2" carbs, you'd have carb-to-manifold ...   12-22-2005 03:51 pm

Body & interior stuff > Plastic Door Panel Fasteners (8 replies - 9783 views)

Edward, your door panels look to be worse than average, so the improvement will be that much greater when you get things done.  I added extra ...   12-19-2005 06:07 am

Suspension > REAR WHEEL BEARINGS - Questions??? (17 replies - 12723 views)

I used to think xerography copiers gave 1:1 reproductions but actually they can be off by several percent and may not be the same along both ...   12-18-2005 03:40 am

Engine & Transmission > Loss of Power/Oil pressure when hot (15 replies - 16268 views)

Body & interior stuff > Radio block off plate (3 replies - 4434 views)

Here's the only photo I have on the radio blanking plate.  Nothing that shows the back side, I'm afraid.  According to the photo title, it measures 6.375" horizontally ...   12-17-2005 03:34 pm

Suspension > REAR WHEEL BEARINGS - Questions??? (17 replies - 12723 views)

Good question.  I'd suppose that it's present to provide a small sealed volume to capture whatever gets past the o-ring and bearing, so that the brakes are ...   12-16-2005 02:52 pm
