Re: V12 Engine Instruction Manual

Hi John, I would also be interested in a basic explanation of the engine management systems. Ive read a lot on this excellent forum but would welcome a ‘ladybird book’ on how the vacuum system works. I’m aiming to put my USA spec to British spec when I get to that point in my restoration and I find ...

Re: Haynes V12 manual

Hi Darren, I don’t think Haynes produced an e type V12 manual, I’ve looked but not found one.

I picked up a copy of the Jaguar Daimler V12 manual and a copy of a period Jaguar V12 engine manual.

Not sure which side of the bet you’re on, I wish you good luck.

Happy new year

Re: Classic Motoring Magazines.

As an S3 2+2 owner, I've always felt at the bottom of the pecking order in e type circles.

Having said that one day my pile of bits in the garage will emerge as a beautiful swan (even if you have to pick your angle to view the car at its best).

Re: Cars of the Netflix Crown

I’ve certainly enjoyed The Crown, including all the beautiful cars and street scenes. I’ve often wondered if all of these ‘props’ sit in a large warehouse somewhere under common ownership or if individual owners make their cars available to the film and TV industry. I imagine that one could place a ...

My first time seeing this video, well worth a watch, thank you.

I would wholeheartedly recommend attending the Classic Le Mans event in person if you have the opportunity, next one July 2021

Re: Primer... which is best for bare metal?

Hi Rich, I’m just stripping the underseal from my car and have decided to use Bilt Hamber rust gel where needed and then use their Zinc primer on the bare metal on the underside and within the sills etc as I’m replacing panels. It seems a zinc rich primer will give a good level of protection under t...

Re: Trim colour change S3 V12 2+2

Hello,

My car is March 72 2+2. I believe the sun visors and headlining are original and are both beige fabric.

Good luck

Re: Did anyone go to spares day

Hi, Yes I went to the spares day, picked up some pre ordered parts from Simply Performance and had a look at what was on offer. The highlight for me was meeting Angus and seeing his car, it was a beauty! It was not as busy as previously but still plenty to have a look at for a couple of hours and th...

Re: DAB radio for 1974 E type.

Good morning, my ‘72 V12 2+2 has the speakers mounted low in the B pillar just behind the front seats. I expect this is also true for the roadster but not 100% sure.

Re: Scam alert!

Hello Mario, I hope your keeping well. I have no association with Mario other than I purchased my e type V12 from him via e bay couple of years ago. The car came in from the US just as planned, no surprises and and easy smooth transaction. It is disconcerting buying an unseen car, and many would not...

Re: New E-Type book (cont'd)

Peter good luck with your new project. Assuming it’s e type engine related can we have a few detailed chapters on the V12 which surely is greatest of all Jaguar engines.

Best wishes

Gentleman,
Thank you all for your shared experience and comments. It will be a while before I’m fitting the box so expect me to return to the subject again and no doubt draw on your invaluable experience.
