can anyone advise IF all cars have covers on the air into the cabin (small hinged doors) or are some just open?

I’m trying to reconnect with Warren Pearce (sixties racer with Wk 310). Warren rebuilt my etype in the 1980’s. His son Lawerence went on to run the XJs Lister racing company. Last I heard was the Warren was living in Glasgow? if anyone has any better info I would be grateful for the contact. Best re...
there is only one guy to refurbish any type of jaguar gearbox. ken evans. Klassic transmissions. very sensible prices. top quality workmanship. the trade use him all the time. when Nigel Webbs dtype finished lemans 24 hours with on of kens boxes I was convinced! he has built 6 boxes for me. just per...
if you get the conditions wrong and use a carcoon it can be a nightmare (don't ask!) I suspect the car is hanging in rust due to condensation from the storage. if you zoom in on the wire wheels that confirms it for me. the under bonnet shot also shows lots of surface rust.

Its along time since I worked on this but I don't remember the bolts being to longer in order to remove the caliper. So you could investigate if they are the orig/correct length. The calipers are shimmed to center them on the disc. Unless they are way off most people don't refit them.

My experience is the same as Tims. In my case i obtained an endorsement from the Jaguar Drivers club to confirm the existence of the car. That plus the heritage certificate was all i needed plus the fee and forms. However i did have an issue where one digit was misplaced on the Nova. so please doubl...

definitely not normal. check all the bulkhead penetrations. those that are nor used must have plugs and those that are should have proper grommets. also the gearlever should be seal via various pieces of insulation. Obviously as per the previous post this assumes that you don't have an exhaust leak.
I like them. I have two and use them for the initial settings. If you take your time they can give you a very good result. you can see what a 1/4 turn of the mixture screw can do. be patient when using them and you will get good results. Like all tuning however the starting assumption is that all sy...
I have also seen this on ebay. I don't linger when it I got to the no docs bit. But I also thought it was too expensive. The trouble with a completed bodyshell is that you don't know the 'how and the who'. Alignment is critical. And, as has been mentioned you wont now if you have all the bits, and n...
I have a 3.8 and swapped to a later box. I love it. In my opinion changing the 3.8 to 4.2 wont change much if anything. It all depends on what you are trying to achieve. As a matter of interest what cylinder head and inlet manifold combination is currently fitted and also the brake system (bellows o...
Everything is possible but there is an associated risk with this. If you have any of the numbers you could search on XK data to determine if a car already exists an thus yours might be a collection of bits and not necessarily able to get it registered. Depending on the price i would question the nee...
hmm. before you go any further you could try isolating the system at various points using blank brake fittings (or just use normal fitting with a crushed section of brake pipe) then bleed until it goes spongy. i.e. split the front circuit from the rear an see if you can get a hard pedal. one other p...
