Default My 1966 S-Type I have owned for 22 years...

This is my '66 S-Type Automatic with factory-fitted Webasto Sunroof (restored),and wire wheels added. The motor was completely re-built about 9 years ago. I have had the carpets replaced with new Wilton carpet and the wood completely re-built and re-veneered..

Loverly car. Presume a 3.4 from the head colour?

BTW ~ why is the engine breather cover turned through 90 degrees?

Thanks for your comments. re the engine breather cover, I have no idea. I am not mechanical at all and so "ignorance has been bliss" in my case. Is it affecting the performance at all? Tell me what to do and I shall have it rectified.

How it is in the photo it looks like the coil might catch the mechanical fan? It should be rotated 90 degrees anti-clockwise when looking at the front of the engine.

Wonderful car,

yes the breather tube should be at the left when looking at the engine at the front. oriented like in the photo below.

I take it you have the original air cleaner assembly?

The coil mounts at the top front on a bracket and stub over the center of the round cover shown in the picture.

Rubber elbows still to be fitted to breather pipe.

I have just looked at my motor and you are quite correct of course. The breather tube is sited correctly now on my motor. I guess after that pic was taken prior to installation they realised (yes - in New Zealand we spell it with an "s" and not a "z") their error. All is good. Phew! and many thanks.
