Excellent work, thanks for that. I would never have thought they were for the tail lights but there you go.
This seems like a reasonable thread to post to.
I recently found these 2 parts in the bottom of an old box I got back from somebody who worked on my car 6 years ago, and have no idea if they are related to my car.
The first is a heavy-duty cloth strap, maybe 20 inches long, seems like it was in an engine compartment somewhere (dirty, oily) , possibly wrapped around something round but tapered…
Second is a black, steel (?) 6mm hexagon shaped rod, 10 inches long, with serrated ridges in the middle 8 inches, as if used for a jack of some kind.
I hope I don’t go 0 for 2 on this, I apologize in advance if I do.
Never seen either associated with an E Type.
There is a strip of thick cloth used between the torsion bar shields and the frame - could be what you show.
First one is an “insulator” between the mud guards and frame rails on both sides of the oil pan.
The hexagon rod is a depth gauge of an electric drill.
Ok. The short heat shield bracket was on the car but not long enough to attach the lower heat shield. I think the longer is the correct part.
Can anyone confirm before we change out.
Not sure why the shorter ones were on there so appreciate the confirmation.
We need to switch out the new bottle that has a broken bottom “nipple” too.
Nichole The shorter one I think is the other half that wraps around the frame .
Bracket is from undershields , brass banjo is from brake master, banjo bolt either fuel system or oil pump to cam shafts ……
Never having had an E I would speculate its a door trim.
the short one is for third bracket on an AC car for the drier mounts
All 3 pictures are the same part.
Aftermarket electric fuel pump. I guess it depends on how well it functions and to what extent you want to keep things Jaguar. My ‘68’s original SU fuel pump is still going strong.
American-made vibrator type of fuel pump: they were a very good product. I bet John could use it.
If nobody claims it, I’ll take it!
