I recently purchased a 1968 Jaguar XKE OTS series 1.5 I was told that the original dealer swapped out the motor and trans to a auto XJ model engine #7L42988S. No sure trans number yet?
Can anyone tell me the year that this engine is? and what differences I should look for on the motor? Can I put of SU triples on this engine with the correct intake manifold?
Did they have to do any modifications to the engine or engine bay to install this motor/trans other than the center console and
How different is it when I order spares for this motor?
This is my first XKE so I will have many questions coming
Any info would be greatly appreciated
