Re: Soldering

Cordless butane soldering iron should work although you might be better with using a small blow torch. https://i.postimg.cc/bwSxthm7/61vb-MTXmhi-L-AC-SL1500.jpg But if you cannot use a naked flame you could try a 300w electric soldering iron: https://i.postimg.cc/FR6cRCjr/Image-5.jpg https://uk.rs-o...

Re: Original mild steel exhaust

I bought mine from P D Gough (Nottingham) : https://www.pdgough.com/ They have original period patterns from which they can make a copy.

Re: A question about jacks

If you are stuck you can easily convert your current Jack to the earlier Metallifacture design. Richard Smith sells the conversion kit.

It covers Shelley and the various versions of the Metallifacture jacks: http://forum.etypeuk.com/viewtopic.php?p=34968#p34968 The jacks were dated by Metallifacture not Jaguar and that practice occured much later on in production...

Re: Series 1 3.8 harmonic balancer/edis trigger wheel bolt pattern

I have let this thread run because it raises an interesting question. However the OP's IP address is in Vietnam so in some weird way this could be a spammer. I will keep an eye on it but if it disappears you will know why.

Re: Heater box

Change the blower motor to a Pontiac Fiero one and add the Clayton deflector and adjustable vents. You can leave the heater in place to help demist the screen if it rains. All details on how to do these upgrades in the Forum. http://forum.etypeuk.com/viewtopic.php?p=14630#p14630 http://forum.etypeuk...

Re: FACTORY FIT - Series 1 3.8

Jaguar Classic produced their exhaust from original drawings. That system has one silver and one black down pipe, so one can assume there is some original evidence to support this. The Jaguar Classic exhaust has aluminised pipes and silencers so whilst practical, not to original period specificatio...

Re: Gear lever gaiter

The early 4.2 cars had the rubber gaitor but that was replaced by an Ambla (faux leather) sleeve in about 1967.
