Re: rear engine mount

As your engine number is 7S9385 it would not have had the bracket as this wasn't introduced until 7S14001. Series 3 engine numbers ran from 7S1001 to 7S17189 although 13543 to 14000 weren't used. Suffix letter L means Low Compression ratio (reduced from 9:1 to 7.8:1 for the North American market fro...

Re: rear engine mount

Hi Robert, Sorry, that should have read from engine number 7S14001 not gearbox number. You really need the Jaguar Parts and Service Manuals although the only illustration I know of is in the Parts Manual shown under Engine Mountings Rear.

Re: rear engine mount

Hi Robert and welcome to the forum,
The bracket C42202 was added from gearbox No 7S14001 (around Sept 73). I believe the intention was to reduce the amount of intrusion into the passenger compartment by the engine in a frontal impact.
Hope this helps,
Bob

Re: Weak Spark 76 XJS

Hi Andrew, It may work OK but when you get the new rotor check how accurately the ferrite rods have been set in the moulding. The one I bought from one of the usuals had some rods breaking the outer rim, some set well in. Not what you want when the coil to rotor gap only has a 2thou tolerance (0.020...

Re: Brake Vapour Lock

Hi Adrian,
Are the rear brake air scoops fitted and if so have they been squashed by someone lifting the car on them?

Re: Weak Spark 76 XJS

Hi Andrew, I appreciate that you have moved on from the coil, but just for the record a contemporary Lucas Technical Service Note (not numbered) describes the coil having been specially designed for use with the original OPUS system on EV12. It quotes Lucas Pt No 13C12 having a primary resistance of...

Re: Turn signal adjustment

Hi Chuck, https://i.postimg.cc/vHKjnxfs/Indicator-Switch-0.jpg IIRC The correct rotational switch position is set by engaging a raised button pressed into C31756, one of the two halves of the bracket which clamps the switch to the steering column, with a hole in the column housing C29134. This pictu...

This might help you find the join. Looking from the car centreline above the steering rack (LHD) out to the left.

Re: Washer hose replacement

Hi Gerhard, Was the piping disconnected from the jet as well as the pump so you are sure it is the piping and not the jet? Has it ever worked during your ownership? Has any work been done under the bonnet since it worked? The original silicone piping is soft and very long so there is great scope for...

Re: Engine rebuild, various questions, and - hopefully - some good ideas.

Item 4 - The Chain Tensioner Just musing. The tensioner will have a resonant frequency which without the dimple may have led to vibration and consequent fatigue failures during engine development. If so and given the constraints of the layout of the mounting points providing asymetric support, perha...

Re: Auto trans rear engine mount

Hi Nigel, First make sure you have the correct spring for an auto, it has about 5 coils against about 3 (from memory) for the lighter weight manual. The spring is compressed as you raise the mounting plate up against the body. Use a stout hollow tube to allow the gearbox mounted stud to progressivel...

Re: Auto trans rear engine mount

Hi Nigel, Mine had been incorrectly assembled, the workshop manual is unhelpful and as I found, the parts manual is not much better, with a poorly presented diagram and part numbers transposed. It took me some time and research to work out what I believe is the correct assembly. I posted images on j...

Hi Pete,
Autos were much more popular in the US. Have you tried searching/posting on jag-lovers? In addition to the etype forum they have a V12 engine specific forum here https://forums.jag-lovers.com/c/v12-engine.
Good luck,

Re: S3 V12 Stromberg/Dizzy vacuum pipes

The outer land of the fixed jet face should be set 0.1" (2.5mm) below the level of the bridge. With the correct needles fitted there should then be enough adjustment available via needle height to tune correctly.

Re: Parts - Same part? 25% more!

Hi John,
I went for the more expensive UK manufactured Lockheed products rather than the cheaper replicas made in China. Can't comment on any actual quality differences but picking up on your query on your other thread, the servo came radially aligned spot on to pick up the original brake pipes.

Nice to see unmolested rear brake air scoops
Early type as well, this being their more usual fate.
