XK engine swap

I own an early non matching number XK120. And I would like to know what is the best Jaguar to salvage the motor from to fit in my car, outside a XK120 , 140 or 150. I would like a "late" XK engine still 3.4L just for a better oil pump,Hyd chain tensioner ect.... I suspect that I may need to use the oil sump from one to use on another block, but if anyone has done it before, please it would be much appreciated to receive some directions before spending the money .Many thanks in advance.Thierry See More

"Hi Dave,   Thanks for looking at my album. 1st if you have a POS. (+) grd. 140, you need to change the electrical system to NEG. (-) grd. An alternator is strictly for NEG. grd. cars. The #10 gauge BLUE wire runs directly to the battery (+)…"

XK 140 Alternator Conversion wiring help!

I have decided to put uprated headlights and an electric fan in my 140.  With the extra current draw I have had to look at doing an alternator conversion.  I came across Otto Mullers pictures of an easy enough mounting bracket.  I have made the bracket and alternator is sitting nicely on the engine.  But I have come across a small snag on the wiring.  The XK 140 has 2 wires coming off the Generator.  One feeds the Ignition lights.  The other goes to the ignition switch/light switch/amp meter.…See More

XK 140 Steering Rack removal Help

After having another good root around the front end suspension, I noticed that my rack is missing the Metalastik mount entirely on both sides of the car.  To replace them, do I need to remove the the entire rack?  If it does need removed how do I separate the steering rack from the steering column, so that I can get to the underside of the rack to remove the bolts.? Picture below of the rubber pad I seem to be missing on my car.  See More
