I’ve told you before, men sit around and talk and try brute force and women come along take a look and fix things.

That looks lovely and well done you for having the bravery to fix it. If I dropped something inside anywhere on any engine, I’d be panic stricken for at least a week

Neodymium magnets are very brittle. As you've found! Just becareful with the fragments. Breathing in or swallowing can do a lot of damage inside you.

 

That's what fillings are for, to catch bits of errant magnets.

....Mrs6C got interested at this point and decided to have a go at retrieving the lost core plug and has succeeded!  

 

Presumably those tweezers she's handling aren't for plucking eyebrows....

That S-Type interior definitely shows how much they were hoping for it to be a hit with the US market doesn't it...

God that interior of the S type takes me back - press day Brum Motor Show 1998, me and a colleague sitting in it thinking it was awful. Whilst I quite like the S type now I still think the early interiors are horrible. Rover got it so right with the 75 and Jaguar got it so wrong.

I think the Rev BJ once said it looked like what a Hyundai designer of the period would do if instructed to design ‘an old British car dashboard’ over a weekend, and that about sums it up.

Facelift cars have much better dashboards, both in style and quality.

Anyway, sorry to moan all over your latest car purchase Chris, enjoy it!

Some progress on the E Type today, core plugs fitted, carb jet diaphragms fitted and inlet manifold refitted and of coarse the backward step one of the heater hoses is falling apart and as it has different sizes on each end I have had to order a replacement. 

 

Oh well next week now before any more will get done........

 

Edit - in case you wondered why we have only done 2 out of 3 carbs today it is because I had already done the other one. It was pissing fuel out, fortunately it was the only one you can get to with the carbs in place.

Hopefully they have a Germany branch as it is the fella on the bike they need. Might find him in nature reserves if they need to serve him papers

Whoa whoa whoa.
I didn't touch anything other than the cruise control. And occasionally the accelerator.
