Pictures

I share with you pictures of my dad's Jaguar. He bought it in the mid 70's and restored it. However, it was unfortunatelly not very well taken care of and was left quite exposed to the elements. It ended up needing a second restoration which is now in progress.



It is a XK120 Modified Coupé, with serial number S680098 and engine W6120-9S.…

Thanks Rafe for the welcome

And thanks for the links. I have a hard copy manual but the electronic version will be handy.  I will take your advice and ask a few people to be friends as although my XK has been restored in the 90's it still needs work done to the suspension involving replacing bushes, etc amongst other things.  I have a plan of attack from the book but if I strike any complications it will be good to ask someone with experience.

New to XK's

I have been advised that joining this network is the best way to seek help and advice in maintaining and finishing my new XK140. The car had a body off full restoration in the mid 90's and has since done about 29,500 miles. whilst it has been well maintained and had continual work on it it will still need quite a few small things done to it over the coming months, new dust boots to the steering ball joints, new choke cable, the timber work around the windows re veneered and fitted, etc.…

Ken

Just joined. Don't know how to "add a blog post.". Looking for advise regarding bleeding brakes on 1953 XK-120 FHC. Car pulls left under braking. Have bled brakes per the manuel, no improvement. Can there still be air in one of the right wheel cylinders? I removed them, cleaned them, and reinstalled. Car still pulls left under braking. Don't have full braking on front right. Why.. All brakes have been bleed several times. Have a nice hard pedal, but still pulls left.

update on the restoration project

Below are a few photos when the car was finally shipped back to the UK after a few years in Spain where the so called restoration specialist did nothing...apart from take my money!!



The bonnet wasn't in primer when it was transported and so when it rained the bonnet picked up a little surface rust. But since these photos were taken it's had a coating of rust protects to stop it progressing any further.

The car is in storage for the winter and in the spring I shall carry on…
