Re: 4.2 engine running hot

Harvey, Test far air in the system by by doing the heater connection at the highest point and see is you can get more coolant in. They can be susceptible to air locks. Then, with the car running, check the circulation of hot coolant with your hand from cold. When the thermostat opens you should feel...

Re: Gtjoey bored Anyone like……

Looks like an excellent head. Bet it costs about as much as a wide angled C&G head though. If money were no object, I would have a go. Getting large power pout of an XK engine is expensive. My opinion on the diminishing returns of power vs money spent is 300 bhp on a fuel injected 4.2. That is aroun...

Danny, you are a sad man.

Re: Hoovie Buys an S1 Roadster

For all that, I would have bought it had it been offered to me and I would still be happy with it, even with a huge oil leak.

Good purchase Hoovie. Fantastic car.

I would definitely change those footwells. I bought a pair 2 weeks ago, they are less than £50 each.

You can get sponge strip in from Woolies, it is self adhesive and you buy it buy the meter. It sticks around curves beautifully. https://www.woolies-trim.co.uk/c-132-sa-sponge-strip The last pair of cant rails I did, I used thick square profile black strip. You stick it on, then you sand it with a b...

Yes Julian, that is what I meant. Shabby Chic, sorry. I love Citroen almost as much as Jaguar. However the SM is the only car I have given up on. I purchased an Orient Blue one from Italy 10 years ago. It had been parked for over 20 years and was seized. I stripped it to the bulkhead then gave up an...

Excellent film, well worth doing. Congratulations to the family. Just looking at my first SNG invoice for E type parts over 7 years ago for a brake pipe set and and some clutch bits for £143.84. I was ordered on a Wednesday and arrived the next day, no drama. I now have well over 300 transactions la...

Surely you need that gap to take account the width of the screen?

Good job Joey, you will have it installed in no time at all, you look very organised. I promise to get you an update on my power steering S1 FHC project soon. A couple of weeks and we should be on the road. The XK with the 2.88 is rippin it up I must say. https://i.postimg.cc/qRN2518m/20220813-20531...

Re: The Yoof! Efi Conversion. These Guys will Go Far.

My guess is that they have simply drilled injectors into the manifold from underneath. Its nice to use what you already own. The SU pistons/needles, float chambers etc have just been disabled so it still looks nice externally. A throttle position sensor has been attached to the end throttle spindle....

Looking good Joey. That E type of yours is fantastic. Dont forget the engine goes backwards and forward quite a lot on an E type, useful to know for fitting the reaction plate. I was thinking of you the other day in France. Loads of GT40s at the Le Mans Classic. The 2005 ish ones look good value in ...

Alain de Cadenet RIP

Alain de Cadenet was a very interesting Jaguar Enthusiast so I thought it worth mentioning on the forum that he passed away recently. This is one of his best films about the more interesting Jaguar cars, worth watching again even if you have seen it before. RIP Alain. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v...
