A Jaguar Global Fraternity for XK120/140/150/E-TYPE/SALOON Owners

Please click on the PDF link below for an excellent 11 page comprehensive tutorial on SU carburetors.

XKs used 3 types of SU carburetors:
  1. H 6* on XK 120, XK 140 and Mark 7 (Mk VII)
  2. H. D. 6* on XK 150, Mark 8 (Mk VIII) and Mark 9 (Mk IX)
  3. H. D. 8* on XK 150S and E-Types (XKE)

* When added to the number 1, these numbers are multiplied by 1/8 of an Inch which will give the size of the carburetor. Ex. 1 + ( 6 x 1/8) = 1 3/4 Inches, 1 + (8 x1/8) = 2 Inches.
For ordering or buying the right parts for your carburetor you will need to know  the type of needle and the jet size. The jet needle size is stamped on the side or shank of the needle.

Hi Rafe,

Thank you. I recently came across a very clear description of SU operation. There are 2 parts and this one is the first one.

Thank you Jean-Francois. I initially added it to the XK/E-TYPE OWNERS GROUP on FACEBOOK about a week ago but totally forgot to add it to this site. Thanks for reminding me I have now added it to the Video Library
