Re: New member from Canada

When you feel up to it post a few photos and ask any questions seeking for help. Lots of very willingly given advice on he...

Re: Nick’s V12 arrives!!! 1972 LHD Auto

Nick, welcome to the forum and E Type ownership. Lots of advice on here, including how to convert to RHD and fitting a manual box, if those things appeal. Rust is the big enemy, it would be wise to have someone who knows E Types (not just someone who calls themselves a classic car 'expert') to surve...

Re: Open Day at e-Conic Cars (Moss Jaguar)

Hi Angus, I've put my name down for the JDC E Type seminar on the 8th April so might get myself in the really bad books to be AWOL on the 7th too. I could probably escape on one day over Easter, so the 31st could work for me. But let's see what the consensus is from the others who showed interest. A...

Re: Open Day at e-Conic Cars (Moss Jaguar)

HI Angus, have you thought any more about an open day?

Being selfish I can't make either of the first three Saturdays in March and the last one is the Easter weekend.
Jaguar spares day at Stoneleigh on Sunday the 18th March.

24th suit anyone else?

Regards

Re: XJ6 camshaft compatible with E Type?

Christopher and Carsten have given you the information you need. I didn't make it clear in my first post that the XJ6 cam was originally fitted to my standard E Type head before I changed to the XJ6 head. Some people even have larger valves in their standard head if new guides are being fitted. Bene...

Re: XJ6 camshaft compatible with E Type?

Steve, I have the head and cams from a S3 XJ6 4.2 engine on mine. The cams have a slightly higher/larger lift, need the 12-14 thou tappet clearance and there is a larger inlet valve on the head. But your E Type head will be the smaller, standard size valves IIRC. Get the right bits and pieces to fit...

Re: 50 Year Celebration of the Series 2 !

Gerry, a nice idea. A get together at Bicester or maybe Brooklands would be fun.
There are enough of us who appreciate the S2.

Though be prepared for a continuation of the S2 aesthetics theme :roll:
