Low Drag

Does anyone know what happened to the original Low Drag CMC restored a few years ago, is it in a museum/private collection or even if its in UK?

Re: Series 3 v12 engine and gearbox refit

It goes in from the front, leave off alternator and to be safe carbs/manifold. Unlike other E Types the top rail of the picture frame is removable. Straightforward fit.

Re: Farnham Maltins

I live local and attended each year, however, towards the end it was a shadow of its former self with very little of interest to those looking for jaguar related parts, most of the major suppliers stopped attending.
Stoneleigh started 2 events annually, November and March?

Re: S3 XJ6 oil cooler - work in progress

Hi Tom I use the S3 oil filter head on some of my rebuilds. I tap the top of the filter head to take unions which then allow for custom oil pipes to feed a standard multirow oil cooler. The first picture shows the mock up, and the cooler had to be raised to get it in the airflow. https://s33.postimg...

Re: Credit where credit due

Hi I would second the above, helped me throughout the build of my XKER rear suspension for a very fair price, including swapping rear springs to get suspension fully sorted. An excellent company to deal with. https://s17.postimg.cc/8fni9hqm7/CIMG0142.jpg https://s17.postimg.cc/gxwydu4un/CIMG0143.jpg

Re: First trip abroad

Think of things that stop you dead in your tracks, ignition amplifier, coil, fuel pump. All doable in a car park with a few tools. Take this. If its anything larger, waterpump etc you need European cover, for recovery if nothing else. We have been many times and its only 20 mins or so out of Calais,...
