The sccttle vent lid had two washers as the rquired spacer. There doesn’t
seem to be a mention of the spacers or other parts in the manual or parts
book but, it is mentioned in the S Type manual and is of a similar
configuration except for the vacuum control. My
question now is… what is the thickness of the scuttle vent spacer? I
don’t think that the washers were an oem Jaguar part. To clarify, the
washers are between the scuttle vent lid and the lifting arms.
The “lip” on the seals I have is on the opposite side of the “chamfer” and
the lip should be facing up (chamfer down), yes ?
For clarity sake, I will use the factory part names, there is no “spacer” in
the assembly. Each stud on the lid has two plain washers (# 10318, 0.75"OD,
0.265"ID, 0.060" thick),a distance piece ( # 7988, 0.310" OD, 0.200" ID,
0.215" tall), a “shake proof” washer and a nut. The purpose of the distance
piece is to prevent the lid’s sheet metal from buckling and pulling the stud
when you tighten the nut too much. If they are missing, find a piece of tube
or pipe and cut new ones. I think the part you are calling a “spacer” is the
first plain washer, but I can’t see it from here, hold it up to the screen.
The order is lid, washer, distance piece, washer, “shake proof” washer, nut.
You can use different thickness washers to adjust the fit.
I have been playing around with a heater motor mentioned on the E Type
Someone mention that it burned out the fan switch (one benefit of
procrastination), so I tested one and it indeed pulls twice the current and
blows much more air. I think I need to use a relay to save the switch, but
it looks like I’ll need two relays if I want two speeds. Any other idea?
Anyone know the value of the low speed resistor for the heater fan ? I know
it gets pretty hot, any alternatives? The fan cage is 1inch larger in
diameter, so it will take some cutting and an adapter, but it maybe a $14
solution to the “dog panting on your leg”
defroster . Any thoughts?
