Hello Richard, Great work! I have a 1957 xk150 drophead. It needs a full resto. do you have an email address where people can contact you about restos? I couldn't find any email contact for you?
At age sixteen I purchased a well used 1958 Triumph TR10, left hand drive for the American market. It looked much like the Standards of that era. My father and I pulled the little head on the 958cc engine and had a valve job done. Drove it to high school and first two years of college. Would I have rather had a muscle car? Sure, but the gas mileage was fabulous. The car set me back only a hundred bucks plus the valve job. Many fond memories of my first car.
Hi john No video only audio?
Tacho goes clockwise. That is news to me! My Mk8 tacho was driven counter-clockwise. The Tacho and Speedo were mirror images. Is there a story here?
Hello, on my 2001 XK8 only the three instrument lights don’t work. Radio, climate control and so on are all fine? Dimmer is working. Any ideas on this problem?Thanks
May it be that the steering motor you placed be for a Left hand drive XK?
Thanks John, great video as usual. Thanks for taking the time and energy, much appreciated.
Thanks for the video... Keep up the good work!
Will you please tell me why it's cheaper to swap out than refresh the motor in it. I just got a 86 xj6 bad motor what is it that makes them go bad so ez
Hello John, With regards to the motor you replaced under the steering wheel for the up and down positions of the steering wheel, does that motor also give the in and out positions? I have up and down but no in and out just a funny clicky noise. Kind regards, Jon Slade
Super job!
Great video. I would have crushed my cover without it. Another subject to cover is regular cleaning of the throttle body electrical connections. The Throttle Position Sensor connection is particularly problematic. Anything less than perfect throws a Throttle position code and sends the car into limp home mode. Regular cleaning helps me avoid this issue. (after a throttle body replacement did not)
