Re: Kickdown solenoid connector access

Thank you Bob and 'goodoldgranddad', i went through the same saga and thanks to this thread and the photos I managed to replace the kickdown wire o-ring, redress the sump flanges and install a new gasket.

You should get your car registered at the JDC, 70euro/year and then get insured at MARCH Classic cars - you will pay 125euoro for your first classic and 25 for each additional one.

Keep me in the loop for any drive around, I have a e-type V12 form 73 and live in Auderghem

This is actually the only modification needed on the fuel delivery part. As for the opening of the thro...

Driving a V12 on a single bank (6 cyl)

Jaguar did some testing in the early 70's to try reducing the fuel consumption of the V12 running on carbs, recall the engine was supposed to have had fuel injection BRICO from the beginning.One of the trials involved running the V12 on a single bank. Today I went for a short ride after having remov...
