Re: Engine number

Thanks Steve I think it’s very important...there’s a lot of “wool pulling” goes on in the classic car world. I really appreciate the honest advice one gets on this forum..a real credit to the organisers! I’m a hospital Consultant too so being open and candid is ALWAYS the best way(especially when on...

Re: Engine number

Hi Chaps I have massive apology to make to you all I dug out my heritage cert and the engine number is in fact R 4096-9 ..so I misread it!!! I’m really sorry to have wasted your precious time Actually it’s very reassuring that the crank stamping matches the block so that’s good news all round. Many ...

Re: Engine number

Yes that’s my impression..but the number does seem to be the same as the crank number! I’ll try the graphite but maybe contact jag heritage to check the number I think it’s best to get it sorted and above board as I wouldn’t want to be guilty of having a fraudulent number! I don’t think the engine n...

Re: Engine number

Thanks
I’m not sure what the best thing to do is?
Do I contact Jag Heritage and get them to recheck the register to see if perhaps the number was badly written/misread/unclear??
Any views?
Anyone else seen this ?

Re: Am I ready to fit the engine in??

Looks great...might use it as a reference for mine!
I was going to mention the carb float chamber overflow pipes too...much easier to fit now. They should gather together under a flat p clip mounted on the oil filter base

Blimey...it’s not even a RHD car!!!!!
My RHD UK March 62 OTS was £45,000 3 yrs ago(intact and matching but now undergoing restoration ground up..as intended)😬
