Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Jag, Citroens, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Having unearthed TPA yesterday it was time to take her out for a run today. This was intended to be a quick half hour run, but we ended up being out all afternoon, getting home well after dark. After a bit of a race against the sunset I did manage to get to my usual photo spot as the sun was setting...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Jag, Citroens, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Made a point of unearthing TPA in the garage today and clearing up enough of the mess that I can actually walk through the garage again. She got somewhat buried when I was clearing out the van prior to a weekend away a couple of weeks ago. Last time I didn't drive her for a couple of weeks she playe...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Jag, Citroens, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Been using the Jag quite a bit over the last couple of days and touch wood, the charging system has been behaving just fine. Sitting bang on 13V on the gauge (bearing in mind it reads a bit low, that's where I expect it to be) aside from drooping a bit at idle if I've got heavy loads on. Not to an e...

New brushes and voltage regulator for the Jag's alternator arrived today. https://i.ibb.co/tYDGBw7/IMG-20211118-115713.jpg Comparison of the new and old brushes shows there definitely was a fair bit of wear to them. https://i.ibb.co/w4t90g5/IMG-20211118-115748.jpg https://i.ibb.co/GtshvVy/IMG-202111...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Jag, Citroens, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

This afternoon's job. Sorting this. https://i.ibb.co/tpq0zFc/flashmul.jpg More specifically, sorting the illumination in that switchgear. None of it was working north of the heater controls. The fact that they were all out seemed quite odd to me, was really hoping I didn't have a wiring issue to con...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Jag, Citroens, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Right...time to quit putting it off, the alternator needs sorting on the Jag. By the standards of this car it's not actually too bad to get to. https://i.ibb.co/KzJjqyH/IMG-20211116-153711.jpg Of course being a Jaguar there's a pipe (can't remember if it's power steering or an oil cooler line) which...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Jag, Citroens, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Very quick job on the van a couple of days ago. Can you spot it? https://i.ibb.co/yPw1Y5s/IMG-20211112-114707.jpg New air filter. The old one still wasn't quite due by mileage but has been in there since a couple of days after I bought it and was looking quite grubby. https://i.ibb.co/yBsNxDN/IMG-20...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Jag, Citroens, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

One issue I noted while out last week with the van was that the freshwater pump had sprung a slight leak. The leak was tiny, however it meant it kept losing prime. A bit of digging found a seal kit for £30 odd but couldn't actually find any in stock...or for literally £7 more including delivery... h...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Jag, Citroens, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Having barely left the concrete jungle I live in for the last two years (almost to the week actually) this is a nice change. https://i.ibb.co/N3SSzDv/IMG-20211104-122642.jpg At the traditional spot where I usually snap a photo of my cars up here. Lada and Jag have been the only recent ones missed......

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Jag, Citroens, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Today's main mission was to get the speakers I had just fitted wired in. I was not looking forward to this job as chasing wiring through the cab of the van is a royal pain as there's not much that comes off to hide it behind. Helpfully I discovered that the speaker wiring for the original rear speak...
