Routing of starter motor cable

Apart from the fact that Jaguar did route this cable all the way round the front of the engine.....is there any reason why I shouldn’t create a shorter cable and take the direct route around the back of the block...?

Hi Tom Given mines a 63 car I will go with the 45.24, as that is what it was built with Whilst I will have spent around 8 hours by the time I get back to where I am now, for me the restoration experience is a learning process, so never a waste of time It’s a journey...and it should always be somethi...

Hi Steve Well...sadly I think you are correct.. :roll: As having checked the Autopress LTD workshop manual (Kenneth Ball) for all the 6 cylinder cars it agrees with you So I would seem to have an incorrect Service Manual...which is weird I thought the early manuals didn’t quote the engine size, as a...
