Are they rubber? If so, how are they any better than the V12 half moons?
NO made of aluminum , wonder where Jag figured that out?
seen the pic somewhere on net!
I found it! You didn’t lie!
I should sue them for a percentage, doncha think?
Just from looking at the picture it looks like they are smaller in size… I presume V6 has smaller diameter valve cam bearings then V12 but that is just a guess… If someone could tel me the cam bearing size of V6 I could confirm or deny if it fits
Just want to thank Jonas for the Al 1/2 moon seals he made, they look to be a much finer finish than the ones in the link and fit perfectly. If you order from him though, expect shipping to take awhile at least to the US.
Thanks again Jonas.
Thanks For a good word! Glad that you like them.
I’m very pleased with mine as well. And the SS oil feed banjo bolts. Not sure when they will be used, but good to have them.
I am interested in the half moon seals and the chain tensioner plug please.
Also Ole mentioned SS oil feed banjo bolts… do you make these as well?
Parts look great
Can you contact me at email@example.com
Thanks very much
Yes I do make half moon seals, chain tensioner plug, SS oil feed banjo bolts and radiator bleed pipe banjo bolts.
I have just sold the last set of half moon seals yesterday… I will be making another lot next week and let you know when they are ready
Just out of curiosity I have ordered one half moon for V6 and I can confirm that they will not fit. Diameter is a bit bigger and the height is a bit lower so it is actually a bit less then half-moon Also it is way too wide. Few pictures of V6 half moon seal next to the one I have made:
I am interested in your half moon seals, chain tensioner. Would you contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org?

Those look good John.
Gosh, I wish my Rover had any place for some!
As discussed before, I did the same thing on my '83. After it was in place for a few years, it proved really difficult to get out! The rubber swelled around the inside edge of the hole.
IMHO, a far better idea is to use the OEM part – but start with a brand new one, and cut off the tangs that hold it in the hole as soon as you take it out of the box. Then fab a small tab that sits under the head of that nearby bolt on the water pump that presses lightly down on the center of the plug to hold it securely in place.
You can go fancier and machine an aluminum part with an O-ring, but I still recommend the little tab to hold it in place. Much simpler and more reliable than most of the retention schemes that have been dreamt up.
Hi John. If the half moon seals are still available, please contact me email@example.com so we can arrange you sending out a pair to me. Thanks!
I’m happy to report that I received the seals, and they look fantastic! It might be of interest to anyone ordering these from Canada that they took a couple of days short of a month to get here.
Hi John. I am interested in a set of the half moon seals. Please could you mail me, firstname.lastname@example.org
