Re: Solution to use a latter V12

Hello Marek
Great if you have all the bit! I did have all of them also and I ve modify my xjs engine for my own etype.
For sure your message will interest someone.
However, this system sounds to me an interesting alternate.

Solution to use a latter V12

Do someone has used the solution proposed here : http://rushtonengineering.co.uk/v12-eng ... to-e-type/ to use a latter engine coming from other V12 cars ?
It sounds a good other solution to use a v12 if you don't have one yourself or if you want to have an EFI engine in your E.

I agree with Mich, floors take a part of the rigidity of the body. The proof is you said that they have moved.
You need to weld them.

Does anyone has an old unused ignition switch?
I m looking for one to repair my own one. The mecanism which does the contact inside of mine is missing.

You have to order mastic in barrels instead of the standard box. Negociate with your dealer :lol:

Hi, not sure if it is the right reason. I will also use a getrag 265. It comes from a BMW E24. In other words it is a short tail one with an output flange. This output flange keeps the speedo drive pinion tighten with the nut and the first ball bearing close from the outer seal. If the nut is not ti...

XJ bell housing

I've bought a few bits including an XJ bell housing usable with a getrag 265 gearbox.
I don't know if it can be used on the XK 3.8 or 4.2l .
In other words, the xj engine is an XK base one or not ?
Does some on known ?

Peter, I'll try to follow your proposition. Find someone who can do a test before saying that the windscreen I've is not the good one.
The problem will to be to find someone locally..
