Re: My Second E-Type

Eric, welcome to the forum, though some of us may envy you for the number of cars you have! This is a great source for information, help and advice with a sprinkling of humour thrown in. Some of us don't worry about concours, preferring to drive them than polish them, but each to their own and let u...

Now tell us more about your new toy. This may be an E Type forum, but a report or two on this car and your experiences will not be out of place.
So pleased for you Andrew :wink:

Chris, my wife and I admired your car today :yellow: A very nice car, though the keys were missing to stop me driving off in it, if only there’d been the chance :bigrin:

Buggar! Apologies in my excitement I posted in error. I’ll hand my card in at the door.

Re: Hello!

Welcome to the forum, a very helpful and friendly place to get advice and information.
What made you get a RHD car to have in a LHD country? The only good car you could find?
Good luck with the work and passing the tests.

Enjoy your ownership and driving experiences.

Sorry my mistake. Just your standard expected 4.2 straight six. Just making sure I'd come to the right place. :wink: If you had spent any time reviewing this forum you’d notice this is very much the right place full of very knowledgeable people who don’t need trick questions from newbies :banghead:

Re: Keys

Pete, that certainly sounds like worn out keys. As for keying alike, the barrels can be removed from door locks and with a bit of swapping around of leaves with spares from other locks of the same type you can make up new barrels with the same key. Not difficult, but an easier solution could be to d...

Re: A different type of Engine Stand for the XK Engine

The video shows that's a neat adapter Rory, well done for designing it and thank you Julian for putting it into production.
Not sure when I may need one but I'll admire it on Saturday

It was certainly the case for the stainless reservoir sender units that used to be unique to XKS Unlimited. I ordered them from my local Moss branch and avoided the carriage and duty. Based on e mails and literature I’ve had, they seem to be pushing the Jaguar stuff.Worth asking. Simon I asked Moss...

Re: S3 4 Speed Auto Gearbox

Harald, welcome to the forum. Lots of help and advice on here. One thing you might like to consider is that you can fit a manual gearbox with overdrive from a Jaguar Saloon car should you prefer that to an automatic gearbox. Just something for you to consider.

I can now see the photos but slightly concerned that you seem to be missing a hold-down stud for the cam cover. Clearly a hole there for the stud but no stud showing?? Now edited to say having posted this response the photos no longer show in Jerry's post :scratchheadyellow: But then one of them did...
