autowp ru jaguar xk120 roadster 27
I sit here, thinking about an up-coming road trip in october, and caught my self thinking, 'why jaguar'? at 17/18 i knew what jaguars were, didn't know a lot about them, just knew they were awesome motorcars. I've said it here before, but, i was drawn to the xjs first, (i love the long low lines), and the xkss. In 1985 i could have bought a 1954 xk140 that had seen a pretty big obstacle on its left front for 3,000.....the engine and trans were fresh, and waiting to go back in the car.....the top and interior were just trashed. I passed it up, not having the required vehicle to tow it away wi...

My long since ex wife used to enjoy drinking lunches with other narcissistic wanna be rich head cases. A peculiar outcome of one such soiree was proof of how fine British steel is. As she was driving away from the fine and laudable social event she made a sudden and un-signaled lane change to the right. Alas, a poor miscreant driving a Honda appliance was there at the unfortunate and same time. Not appreciating the importance of this divine creature-my wife-not the XJ, had the temerity to continue driving forward as she converged upon his lowly vehicle. Being a 72 the Jag had the original ...

It's been a very busy year for me with my cars. I have just added an X300 in truly pristine condition. Unmarked inside and out with only 53,000km. The photo shows it with my older XJ40 which is also in excellent order. Both cars are fully registered and used daily by either my wife or myself. She prefers the XJ40. Since my last blog the XJ40 has been repainted in its original Bordeaux Red and looks fabulous. It has also had both rear and front suspensions reconditioned and four new tyres. It has now done 180,000km (112,000 miles) I still do my own servicing and both cars have ha...

Lowered Suspension
Tinkered a bit with my Height Sensors and found that the Suspension can be adjusted by moving the brackets up or down. Note: I purchased the Mongoose cable and the SDD/IDS software but the software can not communicate with the vehicle.

THERE WAS NO WAY I WAS GOING TO GET THE CYLINDER HEAD OFF THE RIGHT BANK OF THE VISTA CRUISE- DONATED THE CAR TO PUBLIC TELEVISION AZ.

The Radiator
Received my BE COOL aluminum radiator Saturday, the 31st. I also received the custom made T-piece to tie-in the two top radiator hoses to a single radiator inlet. This will convert my setup from a pass & a half to a single pass cooling system.

Albert Betts Jaguar
Albert Betts' Jaguar - UXF363 - prepared at his Clapham-based (and later Southall-based) AWB workshop. The Magna wheels were painted to match the two-tone paintwork. The car survives and was a recent winner at the Goodwood Revival meeting.

DSCF1609
It's a bad news/good news kind of story...the oil pressure at near-zero...definitely bad news...the good thing was that the failure in the oil system only occurred when then engine was shut down, so pressure held until then...then when started up again, no pressure...turns out the oil-pressure relief valve had been installed backwards...it was bypassing on the next start, and only ran a few seconds as the problem became apparent...so, we got a new oil pump, new, properly installed relief valve, changed out all the engine bearings because one got scuffed in the incident, and took care of the ru...

Took it to an air cond. repair shop. Works fine when outside temperature is no higher than 85 degrees F. A check showed compressor was not performing very good. Quoted $1852.00 USD for replacing compressor and dryer. Found out this repair shop is NOT good. Looking for better repair shop. Found one in Metairie, Louisiana. They are booked solid at all times for 3 weeks ahead. Went ahead and made appointment.

My harmonic balancer went out. The rubber between the 2 metal pieces dried out and split. This caused the belt spinning the alternator to slip and dropped the voltage so the battery wouldn't charge. I used a company named "Dale Manufacturing" to rebuild it. They only charged $110. and did a fantastic job! The Jag is running great again and a joy to drive. Below is a link to their web-site. I thought I'd pass this along since I hear this is a common problem. Dale Manufacturing Link: http://www.dalemfg.com/harmonicbalancer_018.htm

I have been the enthusiastic owner of my 1999 XK8 for 16 months now. My original 28K garage queen now has 47,328 miles. I drive the car a lot. I entered it in the 2011 Houston Concors De Elegance in the driven division and won class runner up my first time out of the gate. I have enjoyed every minute of owning this car. Hope to see you out there with the top down Joseph
