"I have had my XK 140 FHC SE for 34 years. Maybe checked float height 3 times. Used the SU manual .44 / 11 mm drill bit procedure. Replaced brass floats with new improved poly floats. Mine is a SE model with WO2 needle and red spring. I use red GM…"

Float Bowl Setting XK 140 MC with H6 carbs

Hi All,I am currently rebuilding my carbs and had a few questions after reading the XK manual.I states to set the float you push the fork down and use a 1/2inch bar to set the float height.  But almost everywhere else on the internet it says to just rest the fork on the jet(Don't push it down), and set it to 7/16th of an inch.  There is a very large difference between these two setups and hoped one of you could shed some light on it.  Thanks so muchSee More

Looking for an XK150 or XKE roadster

I am new to the Jaguar community.I am wrapping up restoration of a 1960 Mercedes 190sl and am looking for my next restoration project. I restore and I drive the cars I have restored.When searching for a Jaguar I have found what appears to be a number of bogus sites and sellers. I have had great advice from the Mercedes 190 forum, so I though a Jag forum would be my best source of reliable information both for locating a legitimate car to purchase as well as to query for advice on restoration…See More

First Start-Up

Hi gents. I've just rebuilt the upper half of the engine on my 1970 SII XKE FHC due to a bent intake valve, and I've replaced all belts, hoses, the radiator, the header tank, gaskets, distributor innards, and fuel lines, as well as all hardware in the cylinder head, itself. . After gapping the points, it started right up with full choke.It's noteworthy that other than the miss that resulted from the bent valve, the engine ran very smoothly before the tear-down.So, now that I've had the engine…See More
