Re: Crankshaft Pulley

Hello Michel

I am so sorry, the PO seems to have removed the pully before I received the engine! :roll:
I DID tell him that I was only interested in the EFI components .......
Again, my apologies .

Re: Crankshaft Pulley

Hi Michel

I bought a V12 engine from an XJ12 HE in order to use the EFI bits to convert my series 3 to fuel injection.
Would the pully from this spare engine be the one you need?
I will send you a photograph later on today, when I am back home .....

Did replacing the u/j solve the vibration?
Or did you find something else?

Re: From 4 to 5 Speed , but Which one ?

Elite racing transmissions, Stoke on Trent, UK, will build and provide a five speed Tremec T5 gearbox. I have one in my S3 OTS and it is very good, changes well and is not noisy, a common complaint. You can specify the ratio of the fifth gear, I chose .63 which gives me a quiet and comfortable cruis...

Fabulous! A colour change from original but was that a new bonnet? If so, why? The original white one looked ok.

Re: Capacity and compression ratio increase

I have a V12 engine (from an XJ12 HE) which I bought in order to strip it of its EFI components.
Having done that the rest is for sale ..... block, pistons, crankshaft, heads etc..... if it would be of interest.

Re: oil pressure woes

The light will also tell you that the handbrake is on.
I had a problem with the microswitch at the handbrake and the light would only go out when the handbrake was firmly pressed down.
Solved by adjusting the cable.
FWIW .....

That chrome trim on the bonnet/hood air scoop. It is a chrome plastic beading which is also used on the original Austin/Morris mini along the whole length of the car .... wheel arches and sill. You can get at least four V12 air scoop trims out of one length of mini trim for the price of one Jaguar t...

Re: Flickering Headlights

When my car was relatively new, in the 70's, it developed pulsing/flickering lights.
I took it to the Jaguar main dealer, Appleyards of Leeds, and they diagnosed a faulty diode in the alternator.
Whatever they did fixed the problem at that time, but now, forty years later, the symptoms have returned!

I have both a V12 E dipstick and an XJ12 S3 HE dipstick. The E dipstick does not have a 90 degree twist at the top end which the XJ12 has, but the E dipstick turns through 90 degrees along its length. The E dipstick is 48 mm longer but the end markings are essentially the same. The top images (red) ...

With reference to the last comment regarding pulsing lights with idling revs, I have the same symptoms and was going to ask the forum about it.
