Job # 1955 (DS) - Jaguar XK140 C Type (DS)
Cylinder head rebuild and custom leather trimmed XK140 bucket seats


Update report - October 28, 2010

Custom bucket seats for your XK 140 almost completed...

Align honing cylinder head camshafts saddles and caps...


After assessing the condition of this cylinder head, it was decided that it was beyond economical repair. Fortunately, matching numbers not being an issue, we were able to replace the head with a genuine C Type core that will be rebuilt in its place.

Lots of corrosion in combustion chambers 



 Exhaust runners in extremely poor shape
Cam saddles have been modified and are not straight 



 A genuine C Type head will be rebuilt instead
