"That sound like a very expensive rebuild. XK engines can be fully rebuilt for around £5500.00 including carbs, distributor & water pump as long as there is no terminal corrosion or cracks in the block or head. Bill "

XK Engine to rebuild or swap advice needed

I wondered if anyone had any words of advice regarding XK straight 6 engine's.  I've been working on my 140 roadster for a few years and i'm realizing more and more that it needs rebuilt.   Is it worthwhile to spend 12-15k to have the 3.4 motor rebuilt or just simply swap in a later motor at a cheaper cost?See More

XK120 hardtop identification

Dear members,Could you help me identify a hardtop I have just bought for my 120 (under restoration).The hardtop has no identification, it is in good original condition but requires restoration.I guess the identification tag was on a chrome cap covering the latch bolts on either side (cap now missing).I am looking for period information/adverts, and if possible detailed photographs of such hardtops now in use (especially details of latches/clamps).Thanks in advance !FrancisSee More

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
